Dometic supplies food and beverage storage, using everything from thermo-insulated cool boxes to electronic-powered portable chest coolers.
The firm’s products are sold around the world and are used by millions of touring holidaymakers. With a passion for outdoor living, Dometic understands the trials and tribulations of being able to hygienically store food while touring.
Dometic’s history began in 1919, when two young Swedish engineers, Baltzar von Platen and Carl Munters, came up with a theory that you can efficiently create a cooling effect by using heat.
The pair created a cooling cabinet with no compressor, moving parts or ice. By applying heat to a boiler, you can circulate cooling agents around a system, and thus, the world’s first refrigerator was born. In 1923, a company named Artic purchased the rights to manufacture this new innovation and then, in 1925, Arctic was bought by Electrolux.
By the 1950s, Electrolux began making moves to enter the American leisure market. At the end of the 1960s, Electrolux created a sub-division for the touring market by the name of Dometic.
In 2001, Dometic separated from Electrolux and became its own standalone company.
Dometic purchased Kampa in 2018 to strengthen its position within the world of touring.
At present, Dometic has 27 manufacturing and assembly sites in 12 different countries. The products they create are sold in more than 100 countries.
