Our ever-changing world of manufacturing

Our ever-changing world of manufacturing

When we first started Caliente in 2001, we had a slow start. Companies told us they wouldn't work with businesses that hadn’t been in the industry for more than five years, and when 9/11 happened, everything slowed down even more. To say the least, our first few years being in business were rough. But being passionate about Caliente, our product lines and our markets, it helped us survive and grow larger than we ever expected.

Currently in 2013, we are the market-share leader for battery heaters for cabinets or enclosures that telecom companies use for outdoor equipment. We create products that help save our customers energy and money.

If a phone company has a large electrical box in a residential area, the backup batteries inside need to be heated and cooled. If the batteries inside do not work, phone lines will no longer work. Caliente provides these products - heater pads, blowers, air conditioners, etc. Companies like AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile in the telecom industry use our thermal solutions.

And since then, we’ve expanded into three main product lines - Caliente, Sensore and Frio. Our Caliente line of heating elements work for small, spot heating or larger scale needs. Sensore is our line of sensors and sensor arrays. They measure temperature, pressure, moisture, continuity, resistance, surface integrity and chemicals. Our Frio line features thermoelectric cooling solutions for smaller-area cooling needs.

We love our business and we think it shows in our dedication to quality, efficiency and value.

"What I like the most about Caliente is the consistent high quality service and the sincere desire to help meet our demands. They understand today's business world and how to keep customers happy."
