2017 marks the 75th anniversary for HOTSTART. Headquartered in Spokane, Washington, USA, the company has grown from a small, local start-up to a leading worldwide developer and manufacturer of diesel engine block heaters with offices in Siegburg, Germany; Tokyo, Japan; and Katy, Texas, USA.
HOTSTART was established in 1942 with the original patent for engine coolant heating. Today, the HOTSTART product line includes coolant heaters, oil heaters, battery pads and wraps, controls, and complete systems. These products are used on engines to provide easy starts, immediate full power, reduced engine wear, reduced emissions, and reduced fuel consumption. Applications include gas pipeline compressors, standby generator sets, and more.
“We are excited to celebrate our 75th anniversary. It is a big milestone,” said Terry Judge, Chief Executive Officer of HOTSTART. “This company has been very successful because of all the talented, dedicated employees who work together as a team and constantly improve. We also have had great support from our customers, suppliers, and owners. We will spend some time in 2017 to thank these people. We also look forward to our exciting future together.”
