Our Beginnings

Thermophore.com is owned by Battle Creek Equipment Company. Battle Creek Equipment Company was founded in the late 1920’s and incorporated in 1931. It was founded to continue the work of the Sanitarium Equipment Company that was part of the world-renowned Battle Creek Sanitarium, the pre-eminent spa (known as the "Sans") of the late 1800s’ and early 20th century.

Battle Creek Equipment Company was founded to sell health equipment and exercise equipment…a radical concept in the 1930’s. But the concept of selling great products that provided real health benefits proved a strong concept and the company flourished.

The company is now based in Fremont, IN. where we manufacture the majority of our products today. We believe in American manufacturing and have now for 85 years. The company is now run by the grandson of the founder and remains family-owned. Many of our employees have worked there for over 20 years with some approaching 40 years.
