Heatshield Products Celebrates 30 Years

Jan 11, 2015

Heatshield Products is celebrating 30 years of business in 2015.

The company started with two products: Thermal Sleeving and Thermaflect Shield (originally called Heat Blanket), according to an announcement. The Heatshield Products line has since grown to more than 400 products that span the automotive, marine, industrial and military markets.

“When Mel Heye and his son Bruce started the company, their goal was to engineer and manufacture the most technologically advanced and efficient thermal and acoustic shielding products the automotive aftermarket had ever seen,” according to the company.

From the confines of the family’s two-car garage, Heatshield Products has expanded to more than 500 dealers globally. It now encompasses two manufacturing facilities with a combined total of 20,000 square feet, with plans to open a third facility later this year.

The company is still family-owned, and all of its thermal and acoustic barrier products are still made in the USA.
