75-year Heritage of DEVI Electric Heating

The company was established in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1942 and the 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 this time period.

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 whist also being close to an international airport. However, most importantly of all, DEVI 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. 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 amongst other places such as 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 with a considerable market share of the industry. Outside Europe, DEVI is - among others - represented in Canada, China, and South Africa.
