Bound by tradition

ENDRESS wood-fuel boilers - past, present & future: Our family business can look back over a long and eventful company history. 

From waste oil combustion to innovative boiler construction

In 1966, Hans Endress founded the company in Creglingen / Freudenbach. The core areas of expertise at this time were the development of solutions for waste oil combustion. The first workshop heaters were produced.

Taking root - a period of growth

The son of the founder, Hans-Dieter Endress, joined the company in 1970 – and in the same year, the company moved to Rothenburg ob der Tauber / Vorbach. International success in the production and sale of waste oil heaters comes within ten years; until legal restrictions in 1980 prevent the combustion of waste oil in small heating plant.

New doors open: First steps in the development of fully automatic wood-fuel boilers for wood shavings, chippings and cut-offs from wood processing enjoy success – the “HANSEN – Stoker” is born. 

Fully automatic wood-fuel boilers enjoy rise in demand and sales in wood processing operations. The company enhances its portfolio - more and more products are added. The sales region is initially centred on the south of Germany. Together with Hans-Dieter and Inge Endress as proprietors, the nephew, Klaus Endress prepares the ground for foundation of ENDRESS Metall- und Anlagenbau GmbH. 

The future: “Made in Germany”

ENDRESS finally sets up business in Burgbernheim

Thanks to the ongoing expansion of production and sales activities well beyond Germany's borders, the head office in Vorbach bursts its seams and no longer offers prospects for the future. The company ultimately moves into its new premises in Burgbernheim where it still resides today. Markus Heese, brother-in-law of Klaus Endress, assumes responsibility as graduate engineer for mechanical engineering for “Technical further development and production optimisation”. 

We promote the next generation of professionals: Since 2000, ENDRESS is a recognised training establishment for fitters, technical draughtsmen, electronics technicians and business professionals for office communication. The production areas, stores/warehouses and offices are expanded and offer perfect working conditions for over 25 trained employees. 

Today, we exclusively manufacture automatic wood-fuel boilers for trade and industry – with the “Made in Germany” seal of quality.
