History[edit]

Thermaltake was founded in Taiwan in 1999. Its American headquarters was established at the same time with offices in Southern California.[1] In 2000, Thermaltake manufactured the world's first turbine cooler 'Golden Orb' for Intel Pentium processors. The company expanded rapidly by establishing business relationships with more than 30 agents in Europe, and eventually built a production plant in Guangdon, China. By 2002, Thermaltake's headquarters in Taipei had successfully obtained ISO-9001. Thermaltake was keen to develop new products, and after years of research, it launched the world’s first liquid-cooler for CPUs in 2004. Thermaltake completed its overseas branch investment and group restructuring in June 2006. Thermaltake was floated on the Taiwan Stock Exchange via an IPO the following year. Thermaltake's most famous product is the Level 10 chassis for which Thermaltake commissioned BMW Designworks to create a computer case unlike anything ever seen before.[2]

In 2009, Thermaltake launched a new consumer/lifestyle brand called LUXA2. The full range includes HTPC products (Home Theatre Personal Computers) and Apple accessories among others.

Thermaltake has sponsored professional gamers for many years and, in 2010, it used that experience to launch a new brand called Tt eSports which targets the needs of hardcore enthusiasts. The product line-up includes keyboards, mice and headsets with more products planned.
