Rathgeber, a medium-sized company, has specialised in the production of temperature controls for heating and cooking appliances.
The company was founded in 1965 by Friedrich Rathgeber. At that time the main products were controls for coal-fired stoves. Through a process of continuous development further applications were soon identified in the field of wood-burning stoves. These controls remain today an important part of the product range, for which the main applications are slow-burning stoves, stoves with chimney, inset fires, cooking stoves and water heaters.
Following the takeover of the Langenscheid company in 1982 production was centralised at the present address and the product range extended to incorporate decorative and functional components, mainly aluminium extrusions, for heating and cooking appliances.
At this time the company took up a new direction in the field of electromechanical temperature controls, which began with a development for electric night storage heaters. Further derivatives followed for, amongst other applications, ovens, space heaters, boilers and water heaters.
