THERMOS KK (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Shoji Toida), a world leader in vacuum flask products that offer people and society a lifestyle that is both comfortable and environmentally friendly, acquired the German vacuum flask manufacturer, alfi GMBH, from WMF AG (Head office: Geislingen an der Steige; Chairman and CEO: Peter Feld), a German manufacturer of kitchenware and tableware, in November 2014. With this acquisition, THERMOS will commence selling products under the premium Germany vacuum flask brand, alfi, from September 2015.

Founded in 1914, alfi has a long history of manufacturing vacuum carafes for table use, expanding its business into specialty stores, department stores and even luxury hotels, with a focus on Europe. Its premium vacuum bottles, particularly tabletop glass vacuum carafes, are popular among both professionals and home users alike in many countries.

STORY

In 1914, a German couple established a company to create new aluminum materials for the production of practical homewares. At the same time, the couple was drawn to the new concept of heat-retaining containers, which prompted them to combine glass bottles with the metal cases made by their company.
Eventually, their efforts culminated in alfi, known throughout the world as a brand of premium vacuum flasks.
