Abbott Furnace Partners With Eric & Jason Jossart

Several months ago “The Monty Heat Treat News” speculated on the future plans of Eric & Jason Jossart of “Atmosphere Engineering” fame. Subsequent to that we posted that the two brothers had formed a new organization “Obsidian Technical Group“. It would appear according to this press release that one of their first partnerships is with Abbott Furnace Group of PA, USA. The photo below was taken at the recent Furnace North America Show in Indianapolis, IN, USA which was held October 2022.

“St. Mary’s, PA, December 19, 2022:  Abbott Furnace Company is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Obsidian Technical Group for Sales and Service support across much of the eastern United States. Obsidian is a privately held company founded by brothers Eric and Jason Jossart, who previously owned Atmosphere Engineering, a product and systems manufacturer in the heat-treating industry.  They are now leveraging their extensive knowledge and their relationships to support manufacturers and customers in the industry.

Abbott purchased their first Atmosphere Engineering product in 2007; although there were some problems, Eric and Jason stood by their product and promptly addressed any issues that arose.  That was the beginning of a great relationship.  Eric and Jason sold Atmosphere Engineering in 2017. Obsidian launched in 2022 to help heat treaters stay up-to-date and operational by providing a wide range of services, including product introduction, training, technical support, installation, and equipment upgrade services. Dustin Yetzer, Technical Sales Manager said, “Eric and Jason have always supported Abbott wherever they were. They have participated in our annual symposiums, sold us our first endothermic gas generator flow control system, and helped us with several projects over the years. We are grateful to continue the partnership with them and the Obsidian team.”

Eric and Jason bring unmatched technical depth to support our current customers and develop new customers with their team. We are confident this will be a successful journey, and we look forward to a long partnership with Obsidian Technical Group. “We always enjoyed working with Abbott in the Atmosphere Engineering days.  The technical team at Abbott was regularly looking for new solutions to improve their designs continuously. As an innovative product manufacturer, it was great to help develop those solutions with Abbott.” Says Jason Jossart, VP of Technical Services at Obsidian.  “We are excited about working together with everyone at Abbott and look forward to supporting their customers in the industry.”
