Richard Kablitz GmbH

Kablitz stands for environmentally friendly energy production from biomass. As plant engineers we design and deliver complete biomass combined heat and power plants, boiler plants and hot gas generators as well as apparatus for heat recovery. The hearts of the plants are the Kablitz grates, which allow the thermal use of almost every kind of combustible biomass. Since it’s founding in 1901 in Riga, Latvia, the owner-managed company works in the field of firing and heat technology and has emerged quickly throughout the former Soviet Union by the innovative entrepreneur Richard Kablitz. In the early 50s the family moved to Germany together with the company. The medium-sized long-established company, with over 110 years of history, has been family-owned for many generations and operates its own foundry and steel workshop to meet the high quality standards of its products.
