Hunt Thermal customers to receive support through acquisition

Heat Exchange Group has significantly expanded its range of products and services by acquiring exclusive use of all intellectual property (IP) and certain fixed assets of Hunt Thermal, which went into administration in February 2022.

Established in 1964 Hunt Thermal owned leading brands including Wellman, Hunt Graham and Hunt Thermal Technologies.

Becoming part of Heat Exchange Group means that Hunt’s customers gain access to fast turnaround service, maintenance, repair and like for like original equipment manufacture of their products. This reduces unnecessary downtime and costs and improves efficiency offered from the company’s three sites in Wakefield, Prudhoe and Aberdeen

In common with Heat Exchange Group, Hunt Thermal has a global customer base and is focussed on high quality operations and processes having achieved ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditations as well as design, manufacture, and inspection standards such as PD5500, ASME VIII U and API 660 & API661, which Heat Exchange has also been accredited for.

Heat Exchange Group Managing Director Matthew Crewe said: “Acquiring certain assets of Hunt Thermal brings benefits to our current customers and to Hunt’s customers. It strengthens our already strong place in the heat exchanger market with additional design information and manufacturing equipment which our customers can take advantage of. It also gives us access to a worldwide customer base that complements our existing offering and contacts.”
