ZI Heating Element Technologies is a reliable global supplier for the design, manufacture and sale on the world market of heating elements and systems for domestic and industrial use.These are the main steps of the company’s evolution:


ZI Heating Element Technologies began its activities in 1963 under the name IRCA. Between 1964 and 1970 IRCA directed its business at achieving leadership on the promising post-war Italian market and success in Europe, especially in applications for the household appliance industry.


ZI Heating Element Technologies imported the know-how from the United States for producing defrosting elements, aimed at the rapidly growing refrigeration market.


The key to success was the introduction of an innovative steel sheathed tubular heating element, which soon proved its reliability and replaced the previous copper technology in the washing business.


ZI Heating Element Technologies extended its range of products for the European market and set up a number of specialist production units:

SEV (1973): electrical heating elements and systems for the small household appliance and refrigeration industries.RICA (1975): design and manufacture of heating elements for the industrial market (cartridges and bands).CORIS (1979): indoor heating.
