Multiple award-winning market leader with innovative strength


On Saturday, 21 October 2023, Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau SE was awarded the highest distinction of "Premier" at the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes" in Düsseldorf.

Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau SE currently employs around 480 people and has become the innovation and technology leader for precise temperature control solutions in research and industry worldwide. The product range of the family-owned company includes circulators with CO2 as a natural refrigerant, classic heating and cooling thermostats as well as dynamic temperature control systems, the Unistats.

The Unistat technology is regarded as the leading international solution for demanding temperature control tasks. Huber temperature control units are used in various scenarios worldwide. Automotive manufacturers such as Audi, BMW and Volkswagen use machines to perform stress tests on engines and transmissions. Well-known chemical and pharmaceutical companies such as BASF, Bayer, Roche or Ratiopharm are also among the Offenburg-based company's customer base.

As a specialist supplier, Huber sells systems such as temperature control for research and production reactors. For many applications, Huber manufactures customised special products according to specific customer requirements, thus demonstrating the company's flexibility and innovative strength.

Through continuous development and research work in its own company, Huber offers services that are not only unique on the market, but have fundamentally revolutionised the temperature control technology industry. For the development of the Rotostat, a workstation for rotary evaporators without waste water pollution and with minimised energy consumption, the company founder and visionary Peter Huber was awarded the "Innovation Prize of the State of Baden-Württemberg". Today, Huber customers benefit, for example, from a worldwide unique controller concept with plug&play technology and electronic upgrade function, which allows users to replace the controller and thus modernise the entire system at any time.

Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau SE is also a pioneer in the industry when it comes to sustainability. Since 1994, Huber has been the only manufacturer to offer most of its product range with environmentally friendly refrigerants. The company received the "Environmental Award of the State of Baden-Württemberg" for its exemplary environmental policy.

However, the company is by no means resting on its laurels. Thanks to continuous research and innovation, it enables its customers to produce more efficiently and in a more climate-friendly way. For example, Huber has developed a new tempering technology that reacts ultra-fast and works very energy-efficiently by using waste energies such as steam to accelerate tempering processes. This innovative hybrid solution saves resources and protects the environment.


Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau SE has been nominated for the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes" for the 12th time since 2006. This year's nominations were made by Bechtle GmbH & Co KG, IT Systemhaus Mannheim and Volksbank eG - Die Gestalterbank.
