In 1959, a branch was opened in Breda under the name Kongskilde, where the production of hot-air guns mainly for the agricultural sector was started in 1965.
The quality and reliability of the devices produced was very well received by the agricultural sector, as well as other sectors such as construction and the automotive industry. The hot-air guns were soon being sold throughout Europe via a dealer network.
In 1994, this business line at Kongskilde was taken over by Honing Beheer Groep and the name was changed to Thermobile Industries B.V. The sales office in France, Thermobile France Sàrl (TFR) and the branch in the UK, Thermobile UK Ltd. (TUK), were then added.
Sales continued to other sectors and more and more countries and territories; not only in Europe, but also in Asia and North America. Sales were also begun to importers with their own models, colours and range names, all produced by Thermobile in Breda.
In order to be able to meet the increased demand, in the calmer summer period, stock is mainly produced based on sales forecasts and, during this period, many modular parts and semifinished products are made that speed up the assembly time in the winter. In addition, new fan heaters are brought to the market every year to meet changing market demand. Sustainability plays an increasingly important role in this.
