The company THERMOBILE INDUSTRIES BV originates from the Danish company Kongskilde founded in 1952-53. Initially it was only concerned with the development and production of pneumatic grain transport systems. Later they also added agricultural machinery. In1959 a branch was opened in Breda called Kongskilde Benelux BV, where from 1965 the production of heaters started. In the early 90's there was a name change and heaters were marketed under the name Konfoma Thermobile. Since August 1994 Thermobile Industries Ltd has been part of the Honing Beheer Group. The group consists of twenty companies that primarily deal with climate and ventilation products.

Sales of space heaters occur mainly in winter and about 70% of the sales are made in the period from September till February. In the quieter summer period there is mainly stock and sales forecast production. Furthermore, in this period many modular parts and semi-finished products are made to accelerate the assembly in winter time.
