Pingutherm is a trademark of Aichinger Merchant House GmbH & Co KG. It is located in the beautiful Bad Schmiedeberg (Dübener Heide). Its owner, Ralf Aichinger, manages the company, which specializes in the development, manufacture and distribution of heat patches in cooperation with the Japanese manufacturer. Since Ralf Aichinger himself lived in Japan for a few years, he began working on the introduction of these ingenious heat patches to Germany as early as the 1990s. As a passionate motorcyclist, he often had to cope with bad and cold weather, which he was usually annoyed about and thought about solutions. Thus he came to the heat patch solution, which he perfected over the years. Its advantage is clearly the use without skin contact, since it is not glued to the skin, but to the clothing.
It is now offered and sold in 10 countries outside Germany. A further service of Pingutherm is to provide the packaging or the patch with its own label or logo. Thus, it can easily be used as an advertising tool for end customers.
