About us


We introduce ourselves.
  From the Beginning: Perfection is our Aim.






After a cold winter the UGO (Universal-Largeroom-Oilheater) was an excellent start for the company.



This year forced air heaters are established into the market place, producing 30.000 kcal/h (120.000 btu/h).



The company grows rapidly and moves into a larger own building: Am Bahner 78



A second product line is introduced: Cleaning machines. Out of the first steam-cleaner Wilms develops a hot-water high-pressure cleaner with 35 bar.



Expansion continues to vast growth and results in the rental of two additional buildings. Wilms now decides for a new building.




Wilms moves into a new 20.000 m² HQ in Giesenkirchen which accommodates 5.000 m² plant and 1.000 m² offices and social rooms.




In Japan Kurt Wilms discovers an oil fired infrared heater producing 40 kW. With this asset Wilms expands in Europe within a very short period of time.





Introduction of dehumidifiers and equipment into the Wilms product range for drying the cold way and preventing damage to buildings with damp.





After the Berlin Wall falls, Wilms expands with a new network of distributors backed by a service organisation in new locations.




In the beginning of the new millennium more than 500.000 heaters have left the factory. The export gains in importance.




The targets for the future have been defined: Growth by quality and reliability, preservation of jobs and further strengthening of the Wilms brand.



Jochen Wilms
Managing Director





An ice cold winter in February 1956 was the reason for Kurt Wilms to deal intensively with the subject heating and to create a heating solution just as simple as brilliant: This was the hour of birth of the first oil fired instant heater of the Wilms brand.
The UGO (Universal-Largeroom-Oilheater) solved countless freezing problems and protected many companies against damage, as well as heating their workforce.

Due to demand Wilms develops a complete range of instant heaters oil, gas and electrically operated as well forced air as infrared for exact spot heating, for indoor and outdoor use.

In 1966 Wilms presents in addition to its product range the steam cleaner ? nowadays more exactly called high-pressure cleaner ? for professional use on the German market. This was the start for an additional product line which has been extended to a complete programme supplemented by wet- and dryvacuum cleaners, sweepers and scrubber dryers.

Since 1985 Wilms is one of the leading problem solvers in regard of humidity problems. The solution: Dehumidifiers which dry economically rooms and sections of buildings without additional heat and avoid damages by humidity.

In addition to this subject Wilms develops and sells also odour improvers and water separators with compressors for vacuum drying.

All Wilms products are manufactured to the highest quality, construction and specification. Reliability and after sales services are the most important part of the company`s success.

Perfection is our aim from your initial purchase of our Wilms equipment to the function and reliability. This is achieved under the management of Jochen Wilms and his professional team.
