Backer Calesco main office and production in Sweden, our production facilities in China, Poland & Vietnam.

Backer develops, produces and sells customised solutions and components for electric heating, measurement and control. The original technology was stainless steel tubular elements. However, the constant growth of the Group, both organically and through acquisitions, has enabled the integration of several new technologies. Today the Group offers a far wider product range, with a vast number of technologies for several industry sectors and a large variety of applications


Flexible, lightweight and space-saving Flexible elements, or foil elements, offer many advantages, beside the fact that the material is flexible. Examples include the ability to have multiple circuits or multiple voltages in the same element, or the ease of locating a sensor. Foil elements provide excellent thermal transfer where you need it most. They are used in thermal control design to protect components under cold-case environmental conditions or to make up for heat that is not dissipated. Foil elements are a space-saving, efficient alternative to applications where precise heat and maintaining exact temperature are important. They are supplied in various materials such as Polyimide, Polyester, Silicon, PTC and Mica.


Backer Calesco supports many segments of the Life Science and analytic industry where precise heat and maintaining exact temperatures are important in many processes. We recognize the importance of technological advancements and are developing and designing heating solutions that will work in the medical field. Our knowledge and expertise in heating products will allow us to produce a heater that meets your heating specifications. Among our customers, you will find globally known companies.

Typical applications: Fluid Heaters(Infusion) Respirators
