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

According to Anne Goyer, IHEA executive vice president, the decision was the result of the board exploring new ways to encourage users of industrial heating equipment to work with equipment manufacturers. With input from end users, the association will be able to create better educational programs and ensure the needs of end users are considered when standards are revised.

IHEA corporate end user membership is open to any corporation actively engaged in the end use of industrial thermal process technologies.  IHEA member benefits will extend to all employees from one corporation worldwide. The consultant membership is open to a consultant who is a sole proprietor or a single-employee limited-liability company. Learn more at
