CERTUSS, a world-leader in boiler technology has been growing since its founding in Germany in 1957. With a presence in 35 countries worldwide and over 10,000 customers, CERTUSS is now expanding its sales network and support services to the US. Their first US site is in Philadelphia, housed at the CBEI Commercialization Center at The Navy Yard.

The choice of Philadelphia for its US flagship is both strategic and somewhat nostalgic. As it turns out, CERTUSS and Philadelphia share a common heritage: 13 families from Krefeld, Germany – where the company was founded and the location of its headquarters – were involved in the founding of the City of Philadelphia. Beyond this historical connection, CERTUSS selected Philadelphia for the city’s strategic position along the economically significant Northeast Corridor, as well as its freight transport (seaport, airport, and rail) infrastructure, and the human resources available in terms of existing high-skilled workers and graduates of the area’s colleges and universities.

CERTUSS steam generators offer highly efficient steam generation on the tried-and-tested principle of water-tube boilers. Reliable, high-quality steam is available within seconds thanks to the use of first-stage burner technology. CERTUSS steam generators are used in more than 80 industries, including laundry service, hotels, cement plants, breweries, food and beverage production, automotive plants, hospitals, laboratories, and pharmaceutical facilities.

CBEI is providing CERTUSS with commercialization assistance to bring their highly efficient boiler technology to the US. The long list of industries that utilize steam boilers makes it clear that there is a large potential for energy savings through replacements of old and inefficient units as well as installation of high-efficiency boilers in new applications.
