Burda Worldwide Technologies GmbH was established by Jiri Burda in Frankfurt in 1990. It embarked on its success story as a wholesaler & export trader for new technologies and quickly garnered for itself the reputation of being an expert in the launching of new products. In 1997, Burda WTG started importing and selling short-wave infrared technology to Europe and Korea. But shortly thereafter, the founder of the company, Jiri Burda, who himself has a great affinity for technology, started developing and realizing his own innovative ideas. In 2000, Burda WTG presented its first own short-wave infrared devices for heating to the public. When production began, Burda applied for international patents which have set the industry benchmark and are one of pillars of today´s success. The company´s biggest success so far has been the combination of light and heating with the internationally acclaimed ground-breaking modular heating and cooling device PERFECTCLIME, which was presented in 2008, at the very top of the range.
Today, Burda WTG exports high-class and partly handmade heating and cooling devices with short-wave infrared technology to more than 50 countries, generating more than 4.1 million euro in sales in 2011, set to further increase in future. The original founder Jiri Burda still is the owner and managing director of the company, which has its headquarters in Frankfurt/Germany.
