Skip Schaefer’s New Home With IHS Electric Heaters

Industrial Heating Systems of Boise, announces Skip Schaefer as their consulting Product Design Specialist. Skip, also known as Mr Heater to many, has nearly 50 years in the process heating industry. He helped lead his father’s company Pro-he-co Manufacturing from 1971-2003, another ten more years under the name Proheatco and over ten more with Titan Industrial Heating. 

Mike Bowman, president of Industrial Heating Systems (IHS), explains, “I was sick of slow turnaround and red tape so I started IHS. Skip Schaefer is the godfather of electric immersion heating systems, he has been by my every step.” Skip replies, “I have attained a wealth of knowledge that is not taught in schools. Happy to help Mike.” 

Skip Schaefer moved to Idaho, but he is not retired. “I love it here. We are not constrained by California challenges; Mike and I can now truly build high-performance, electric immersion heaters,” adds Skip. The new company IHS, started by Bowman, will allow full access to the wealth of knowledge of Mr Heater, Skip Schaefer.

Many of today’s top plating manufacturers depend on Skip’s quality heating systems: Crown City Plating, Boeing, Memorex, Lockheed Martin, Superior Industries, Nordam, Northrup Grumman, and Hill Air Force Base. 

Just a few minutes talking with Skip, you get a sense of his passion for making the best electric heaters. “I am proud of all my accomplishments through the years, I have built tens of thousands of immersion heaters,” says Skip. 

At IHS electric heaters, Skip and Mike will continue to work side by side. Mike Bowman concludes, “We will leverage the latest in technology and apply these processes in our process heating systems; and only use the finest materials available”.

IHS, based in Boise, Idaho, designs and sells industrial electric heating systems, hot oil reflow systems, controls and sensors.
