WarmX is small sized developer and manufacturer of knitted smart textiles.
It was started in 2004 as a division of strickchic GmbH, a family based mid size company in Apolda founded already in 1896. Strickchic is producing knitted fashion for over 110 years completely in Germany.
In 2007 warmX was excluded and founded as an independent company by the masterminds Mr. Gerald Rosner and Mr. Christoph Müller.
At the moment warmX employs about 25 employees.
During the last years warmX has profiled as a leading company in smart textiles business.
We developed a technology that can be used e.g. for heating purposes in special heatable garments.
This technology comprises a textile current circ uit that consists of silvered textile fibres integrated into a knitted fabric. It is supplied with electricity e.g. by a small rechargeable battery.
Because it is made of textile components the current circ uit is flexible and must therefore be guarded and stabilized by a microprocessor controller to have a constant function (e.g. constant heat output). An important aspect of the technology is the proper integration of electronical parts into textile components which constitutes a true ‘smart textile’ in the end.
WarmX holds a patent for its technology and a trademark in several countries.
Our first product ready to market was our heateable underwear. The warmX-technology is being used for the development of undergarments, which generate the warmth within different ranges of the body. The underwear warms up directly on the skin without any heating wires to make our customers feeling warm and moving freely at low temperatures.
Our heated underwear is sold through our website as well as through sanitary retailers. In several other countries we work together with distributors to cover their national markets, e.g. USA.
The underwear was awarded with several awards.
As manufacturer of heated underwear we did not only gain reputation amongst developers of smart textiles. Our worldwide unique and patented warmX-technology can be employed in a wide range of applications.
No matter what kind of elastic textile heating systems, textile sensors for pressure or bodily function, textile electrodes for muscular stimulation or textile data cables - we are your partner for product development around textile current circuits up to the production of your products in our own production plant in Germany.
But we do not stop at the textile boundaries. Together with skilled regional partners we offer hard- and software development especially adjusted to textile needs.
In the field of research & development we work on exciting pan-European research projects together with Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, several universities and textile R&D institutions.
