75-year Heritage of DEVI Electric Heating
The company was established in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1942, and its name ‘DEVI’ is an abbreviation of Dansk El-Varme Industri.
In the beginning, DEVI manufactured heating elements for industrial purposes. In the early sixties, DEVI started to take an interest in electric heating cables; the oldest heating cable installations are from the early sixties.
From Copenhagen to Vejle
As was the case with many other Danish companies, DEVI chose to move its activities from Copenhagen to the provinces during the seventies and in the early eighties. DEVI settles in Vejle, where the communications, such as motorway and railway, are good, and which is close to an international airport. However, first of all, the industry has easy access to motivated and qualified manpower.
The modern DEVI starts in 1985
Over the sixties and seventies, the industrial heating elements were still the most important product group by far; but, in the early eighties, a considerable number of heating cables were starting to be exported, first to Finland. The first subsidiary companies in Germany, Sweden, and Norway were established in the mid-eighties, and the export adventure started to take shape. Throughout the nineties, things started speeding up, and a number of subsidiary companies were established, among other places in the former Eastern Bloc countries.
European Market Leader
Since the beginning in Copenhagen in 1942, things have accelerated. Today, DEVI is Europe’s leading electrical heating brand within the industry with a considerable market share. Outside Europe, DEVI is - among others - represented in Canada, China, and South Africa.
