Established in 1993, Canadian Thermal Dynamics, now Cantherm Distributors, became Biemmedue’s (BM2) first North American distributor for their Arcotherm line of portable heaters.

Arcotherm Heaters, manufactured in Italy by Biemmedue (BM2) and distributed in Canada and the United States by Cantherm Distributors, are professional-grade portable heaters built to keep you working regardless of the weather. These exceptional heaters are available in indirect-fired, radiant, and electric formats.

With portable heaters being among the most popular products throughout the winter months, it is critical that they operate at peak performance. When service or troubleshooting are required, fast and reliable technical service is a must. Cantherm strives to provide with that service either through a local dealer in your area or via remote tech support from Cantherm directly.
