About Laing Thermotech, Inc. The Laing family of companies had its beginnings in Stuttgart, Germany in the early 1970's with the introduction of unique solar and pump products. Born from extensive research and development activities, Laing now has a large number of registered patents in consumer, commercial, and industrial markets. From its initial success in Europe, Laing entered the U.S. market in 1983 with the formation of Laing Thermotech, Inc., in San Diego, California. Current operations within the Laing family group include research and development facilities in Stuttgart, Germany; manufacturing entities in Budapest, Hungary; sales and marketing operations in Osaka, Japan; and sales, marketing, and distribution facilities in San Diego, California. Today, Laing’s primary focus is on the manufacture of fractional horsepower pumps, flow-through heaters, and hydronic heating components. About Laing Products Laing's patented, spherical motor design is truly “state-of-the-art” in pump technology and eliminates problematic shafts, seals, and bearings found in conventional, mechanically sealed pumps. The rotor/impeller is the only moving part in the entire pump and is magnetically balanced on a stationary, ceramic bearing inside the pump housing. The motor is separated from the wetted pump parts by a Stainless Steel or Titanium partition, producing a truly seal-less, leak-proof centrifugal pump that requires no external lubrication. The pump is literally maintenance free. Similar to Laing’s highly developed pump and motor design, the heating products employ unique technologies which ensure the most durable and reliable components available. Laing product designs are truly superior -- they are more reliable; compact and lightweight; less expensive to install and operate; easier to service in the field; and have over 25 years of successful field service, in millions of installations worldwide.
