Benefit from 70 years of experience!

Our value adding heating products together with our measurement and control devices, provide our customers with complete intelligent solutions. Bring us an idea or a problem and we’ll guide you to an optimal solution. Our engineers will not only give you answers, they can also take charge of entire processes for product development and testing by utilizing our advanced techincal tools and lab facilities. Our extensive experience and expertise, as well as our reliable quality and service, guarantee your success. Our ambition is to not just be a supplier, but your preferred partner as well.

Together we can make it happen!

We apply a holistic approach to the environment, that permeates all parts of our organization. The trend towards more energy efficient systems has expanded our market opportunities, as our solutions are often integral features in end-products. Greater use of electric motors instead of hydraulic systems also produces an increased need for resistors. We offer a broad range of resistors and control functions for electric motors, which drastically reduce energy consumption. Our heat pump technology can also be utilized across a wide variety of applications, dramatically reducing energy consumption compared to more traditional technologies.

Join us on the path to a more sustainable future!

Our experience is that existing and potentially new customers approach us with ideas they want to develop.
Norske Backer’s expertise is sought after, whether it concerns customers’ individual projects, or processes in long-term collaborative and development projects.
We are happy to share our experience to ensure customers a product that matches what they want in the best possible way.
The earlier we get involved in the planning of a project, the better we can understand the desired mode of operation, define basic operating parameters and take into account the surrounding environment in which the product will operate.
In this way, we can more easily contribute to the end product being optimized with regard to technology, component and material selection, energy consumption, temperature control and compliance with relevant laws, regulations and standards.
Correct planning, calculation, construction and production provide the best possible cost-effective product that ensures a good lifespan and quality.
It is unsustainable to produce something that must be replaced after a short time, or discarded, because errors or insufficient information were the basis for the construction.

We have the experience and knowledge you need!

When you enter into a collaboration with Norske Backer, we want you to feel confident that we are doing our best so that you end up with the best possible product in relation to the area of use in which it will operate.
There are a number of things that must be clarified early in the planning phase so that the specifications can be optimized as closely as possible to the customer’s wishes.
In collaboration with the customer, we must determine the characteristics of the medium to be heated. Air, gases, liquids or solids.
The surrounding environment and temperature conditions must also be clarified, and a decision must be made as to whether there are extraordinary requirements in relation to laws, regulations and standards.

We have the experience and knowledge to help you!

Norske Backer is part of a group with over 70 years of experience from the development, innovation and production of electric heating solutions.
We therefore believe that we have very good knowledge of such products – we are constantly developing, and we are qualified to give advice on what will work for different areas of use. Our customers’ challenges and changing trends in the market are largely what drive our development going forward.
Our ambitions are therefore to constantly develop in a way where, with the help of technology and research, we can optimize the energy efficiency, the area of use, the safety, and thus the sustainability of our products.

This is where the magic happens!

Various test facilities are used in our research and product development.
This can be simulations in software, physical tests – both in our own factory and in laboratories we have access to through the group.
In addition to own product development, it is possible to use these facilities and testing opportunities in projects together with customers when necessary.
A selection of our products has been tested, approved and certified according to current directives and standards by external suppliers and certification bodies. Such as Ex certified electric heating products for use in areas with a risk of explosion, e.g.
Testing, trials and analyzes of electric heating products before they are put into production will ensure an energy-efficient product that best matches the customer’s needs, authority requirements, and the desire for a sustainable quality product with a long life.



  • Internal tests
  • Temperature measurements and logging
  • Pressure tests
  • Simpler penetrant tests
  • Thermography

  • Humidity chamber
  • Wind tunnel 
  • Noise tests
  • Corrosion tests (long-term exposure)
  • Electrical tests with voltage up to 24kV AC
  • Resistance and insulation resistance tests

Tests carried out externally and project-based according to agreements with the customer

Ideas, specifications, R&D and testing all put into one solution.

When we have presented a solution that we believe meets the customer’s needs, and the requirement specifications comply with laws, directives and standards – the customer approves our proposal and further preparations towards production can continue.

Norske Backer is part of a group with over 30 production facilities on four continents.
The global presence makes us and our products flexible with regard to adaptation and optimization in an international market spectrum.
We strive for continuous improvements in production efficiency, we have implemented LEAN measures and we have an actively present quality policy.
Our factory in Kongsvinger has good production capacity and an organization where we have competent employees with great adaptability. We also have close and good cooperation with our component and material suppliers. This contributes to reduced lead times, fast production and short delivery times of Norwegian-made quality products from our factory, and out to customers and end producers.

Backer offers several different logistics solutions and we always apply a flexible and service-minded approach to the greatest extent possible so that we can meet the demands and needs of our customers. For simple contractual arrangements, we utilize and comply with Incoterms 2010. In terms of packaging and deliveries, we are also able to offer custom solutions, always with the ambition of making things easier for our customers and producing as little impact as possible on the environment. We even offer warehouse storage if needed.
