Hazloc Heaters™, a leading manufacturer of industrial unit heaters for hazardous and severeduty locations, announced today that September 2014 marks the company’s 10th year anniversary of its founding.
Ten years ago Hazloc Heaters™ co-founders, Clinton Lewis and Darren Ochosky, set out to develop high-quality and innovative industrial heating products with on-time delivery performance. In order to achieve accelerated growth Ouellet Canada Group Inc. was approached and a joint venture was established. In addition to selling products in Canada and the USA, Hazloc Heaters™ has also achieved international certification markings on its explosion proof electric air heaters, including ATEX, IECEx and EAC Ex. This gives Hazloc Heaters market access to sell its products into the European Union, Australia, Singapore, Russia, and Kazakhstan.
Starting out in a building with less than 1,000 ft² (93 m²) Hazloc Heaters™ has expanded its facilities four times. The company now occupies over 16,000 ft² (1,486 m²). As part of the capacity expansion plan, and a goal of productivity improvement, Hazloc Heaters™ has purchased two state-of-the-art welding robots, developed proprietary custom material preparation equipment, as well as thermal imaging and heater performance test equipment. Hazloc has also been blessed with a dedicated team of long-standing employees that exhibit commitment and pride of ownership in every high-quality product that is sold.
Hazloc Heaters™ President & General Manager, Clinton Lewis said, “Hazloc Heaters’ 10th anniversary is a tremendous milestone for the company. Over the past ten years, we’ve introduced incredible safety innovation into the industry. We have always looked for better ways to build heaters by analyzing our processes and work flow.

With a quality mission statement of Quality is … Customers that come back, and products that don’t, we have always tried to exceed our customers’ expectations. I am immensely proud to be leading a team of people who strive for perfection every day and relentlessly work to build the best industrial heaters in the world and deliver incredible service to our customers.”
