The innovation management of thermohauser is rated with an "A-". The "A" rating is awarded to companies that have an unusually professional innovation management on an international scale. At thermohauser the strengths are emphasized in particular the following areas: "innovation climate", "innovative processes and organization" as well as "external orientation / open innovation period ".

thermohauser GmbH, which is awarded the TOP 100 seal, ensures that food is delivered at the right temperature. This is possible thanks to their intelligent insulating boxes. “Providing a meal at the right temperature is not only a matter of pleasure, but also a matter of health," says CEO Helmut Sulger.

Practical ideas arise when the market is closely monitored, but also in discussions with customers and authorities. The development department of the top innovator then creates new, often unique products: for example, the foldable insulating box made of EPP (expandable polypropylene), a specialized particle foam. "Although, many companies try to imitate our products, we were the first innovative company to offer such a unique product to the marketplace," says Sulger, who has 37 employees.

According to the motto "Mastering challenges before they arise at the customer level, thermohauser’s team brings new ideas and solutions to the marketplace! This dynamic is what strengthens our commitment to our customers and the market itself!"
