Bruce Hynes, Services, Ovens & Baths
Yesterday we mentioned the passing of Bruce Hynes, founder of used furnace equipment company Furnaces, Ovens and Baths in Michigan. The obituary mentioned the rather unusual way that he entered the industry-from barber to used equipment dealer which is a new one on us. In spite of the fact that he entered the industry by accident he proved to be a natural and he turned Furnaces Ovens and Baths into probably the largest dealer in the North American heat treat industry. The company continues to prosper under the leadership of his son Jeff and daughter Jennifer. Proving once again how this industry is so family oriented we should add that Bruce, Jeff and Jennifer are not the only Hynes in the heat treating business. Bruce’s nephews Steve and Brad own one of the largest commercial heat treaters in the state, Heat Treating Services based in Pontiac, Michigan. We searched through out file photos and found this picture showing Steve Hynes at his facility in Michigan just a few years back.
