Thermal Care, which makes process cooling equipment, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019.
Originally, Thermal Care was owned by Midwesco, a heating, ventilation and air conditioning design and installation company that was founded by the Mautner and Under families in 1931. In 1969, Henry Mautner started Thermal Care to fulfill a request by a customer to expand Midwesco’s capabilities into process cooling.
Over the years, the company has been an innovator of a range of technologies including portable chillers, giverglass cooling towers and variable-speed chillers.
In 2013, Thermal Care was acquired by IPEG, a family of businesses serving the plastics processing, waste recycling and industrial heat-transfer markets. IPEG provided the company with resources, including a move into a new facility in 2016.
Today, Thermal Care is headquartered in a 135,000-square-foot facility in Niles, Ill. The auxiliary equipment manufacturer employs more than 120 people and serves more than 50 industries.
“Our success has been built by a highly talented workforce that continuously innovates, delivering new solutions that elevate our productivity and growth to drive customer satisfaction,” said Lee Sobocinski, Thermal Care president. “The foundation of our business has been our focus on innovative technology which delivers durable and energy-efficient products. And we’ve always stayed true to our customers with best-in-class service and support.”
