Brian Reid, Park Thermal

For 52 years now the names Brian Reid and Park Thermal have been synonymous, but that is no longer the case. Lets provide some background at this point; Park Thermal based in Ontario, Canada provides both new and used heat treating furnaces as well as catalyst for endo generator and salt for austempering furnaces and this is around the world. Brian has always been the man in charge but that changed very recently. Brian parted ways with the company leaving it in the hands of long time President Jay Mistry. In the meantime Brian has started up another company by the name of “Heat Treat Furnace Solutions” again involved in the heat treat industry. Further updates are coming. In the meantime we have this photo from a few months ago shown Brian and others. Brian is on the right, Gord Montgomery is on the left and in the middle are the founders of B & W Heat Treating, the Beingessner family. This photo was taken in front of the of B & W Heat Treating facility in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada  which at one point was far and the largest commercial heat treater in Canada before the firm was shut down a year ago (that is a story for another day).
