Protherm Purchases Process Thermal Dynamics
Protherm owner Marty Sawyer also owns Trimac Industrial Systems of Kansas City, Kansas, which manufactures process heating and cleaning equipment.
Protherm, an electric infrared heater and oven manufacturer based in Brandon Minnesota, has completed the purchase of the assets of Process Thermal Dynamics.
Protherm owner Marty Sawyer also owns Trimac Industrial Systems of Kansas City, Kansas, which manufactures process heating and cleaning equipment, including gas catalytic infrared ovens, convection ovens, parts washers, pretreatment washers, and powder coating and paint finishing systems. Sawyer says the combination of Trimac and Protherm brands is a company that designs and manufactures a complete range of infrared and convection solutions.
“Our Kemac line of cabinet, inline and pretreatment washers only adds to the challenges we can solve,” he says. “The combination of the full range of infrared with convection enhances our unique designs, such as full infrared systems, combining electric and catalytic and other applications where the three heating technologies of electric, catalytic and convection can offer more design solutions.”
Sawyer says Protherm will continue operations at the same Minnesota location. Visit pro-therm.com.
