10 years of innovations in thermal process engineering.
promeos® was founded in 2003 by Dr. Jochen Volkert and Prof. Franz Durst, as a spin-off from the University of Erlangen and with the aim of taking their new combustion system into serial production. Products were made for the German market at first and, from 2008, for the global market. The brand name merges the names of two Greek gods – Prometheus and Eos.
The aim that was pursued at the time – i.e. serial production of the new porous combustion burner – was successfully and economically implemented by 2009. It was the work of the entire team, consisting of the managing partner, the workforce, the investing partners, business customers and the university that gave its support.
Just over 10 years later process heat solutions from promeos® international are used in industry. Today promeos® technology can be found in thermal processes all around the globe and is used by Chinese steelworks, US automotive suppliers, UK bottling plants, Thai coated film manufacturers, Russian aircraft manufacturers and Australian chemical plants.
This technology is also relied upon by many German SMEs which have come to benefit from such energy-efficient heating solutions. Having grown to a workforce of 40, the family enterprise has now been based in Nuremberg since the end of 2011, when it tripled its assembly space.
promeos® has gradually developed from producing burners to setting up entire plants which it can now deliver as finished, turnkey products. The promeos® service team handles the installation, commissioning and subsequent servicing of each system. As a full-scale service provider, promeos® also delivers training for customers and their service or maintenance crews. Moreover, it provides suitable development and consultancy services.
