In September 2022, Nabertherm GmbH, Lilienthal, Germany, will celebrate its 75th anniversary.

In 1947, founder Conrad Naber manufactured the company’s first preheating furnace for a dental laboratory from his parents’ house. In 1951, the company moved into a shop, before relocating to Lilienthal with its twenty-five employees in 1954. Throughout its seventy-five years, the company has been led by Naber, Friedrich-Wilhelm Wentrot and Timm Grotheer.

Currently, Nabertherm employs 500 people, runs subsidiaries in the most important global markets, and approximately 75% of industrial furnaces are now supplied internationally. The applications that the company supports today range from arts and crafts to foundries to fuel cells and sintering of Powder Metallurgy parts.

2022 also marks the 100th birthday of the company’s late founder Conrad Naber.
