The Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) board of directors has approved two new membership categories for those involved in the industrial process heating industry: corporate end users and consultants.

‘The board was looking for ways to further involve those who use industrial heating equipment to work alongside the suppliers that manufacture the equipment,’ said Anne Goyer, IHEA executive vice president.  ‘Input from end users will allow us to create better educational programs, enhance our authoritative voice with government regulatory agencies, and ensure that the end user needs are being considered when we working on standards revisions.’

‘Likewise, consultants have a broad knowledge of our industry and can also be helpful in all of the programs and activities IHEA’s currently offers,’ she added.  ‘Both end users and consultants will enjoy discounts on IHEA training seminars, events and publications and will be encouraged to serve on committees relevant to their use or involvement with industrial heating equipment.’
