Warmup, South Africa’s leading radiant underfloor heating manufacturer.
#Warmupsa was founded in 1982 when K.O Morley identified the need for a discreet, safe heating system during a routine home renovation. #Warmupsa went from a simple design, consisting of a heating wire encased in fabric, through 6 years’ worth of research and development, to a strong and safe foil-covered heater that was supplied to heating specialists throughout South Africa.
By 1991, #Warmupsa had been established as a well-known brand, with a solid reputation, and our products were distributed by major flooring wholesalers.
#Warmupsa kept expanding and in 1998 started stocking, and distributing, a range of thermostats, manufactured by OJ Electronics in Denmark, that was the perfect complement to our heating products.
2003 brought international recognition with #Warmupsa product variations being installed in New Zealand, Australia and the UK.
Just a year later, #Warmupsa acquired a UL rating, allowing our heating products to be installed in the USA and Canada. Maintaining this rating requires frequent inspection of our factory and manufacturing process by UL staff.
Always forward thinking, #Warmupsa opened a branch in Cape Town in 2008 in order to maintain the high quality of service, customer and technical support that we had become known for.
Conscious of energy saving needs, #Warmupsa added the Marmox insulation boards to our product portfolio, to be installed under our heating products, resulting in up to 50% energy saving.
2010 saw another expansion, and South Side Distributors in the Eastern Cape became the official distributor for #Warmupsa in the region. Shortly thereafter, an agent was also established in Bloemfontein due to the demand for our products in the Free State.
2012 was a celebratory year for #Warmupsa. 30 years from inception, we had sold enough foil heating pads to pave a road from Johannesburg to Cape Town and enough heating wire to go around the world.
#Warmupsa became a division of A.J. Pudney (SA) cc in 2015, adding 105 years’
