Robert R. Emrich II, Managing Director
Rob joined the ElectraTherm team in 2009 as the VP of Sales, when the company was still very much a start-up and had yet to sell a single commercial unit. In his first year over a dozen machines were shipped across the globe before undergoing major design changes in 2010. The Green Machine became the Power+ Generator and since then over 100 machines have been shipped to over 13 countries. After BITZER’s acquisition of ElectraTherm in 2016 Rob became the Sales and Marketing Director before being named Managing Director in 2019. In his 10+ years at ElectraTherm, Rob has led the market transition from prototype to fully commercialized offerings and has played a critical role in ElectraTherm’s progression in the waste heat recovery industry.

Tom joined the team as a Design Engineer in 2011, where his talents were evident and he was quickly promoted to Lead Design Engineer within his first year, eventually being established as ElectraTherm’s Engineering Manager. During his 10 years with the company, Tom has overseen 7 major design iterations of the Power+ Generator, the development of the larger 6500 ORC, and the integration of BITZER’s improved expander. Tom is currently overseeing the development of the Active Cooler, the only self-powered cooler of it’s kind in the world. Tom and his team of engineers are at the forefront of ORC development, ensuring heat recovery technology is a viable and cost-effective means of using heat to generate power.
