You’re in the right place. In 2020 we rebranded the Ohio division of our company to better reflect the broad range of electric heating products we manufacture.
The Glo-Quartz name lives on as the brand name of our quartz heater product.
Need a replacement heater? We manufacture replacements for all major industrial heating brands in the industry. Because we are optimized for small batch jobs, we often beat the big companies on price. It’s time to switch to Heatmax / Glo-Quartz and save.
We build the most reliable built-to-order industrial heaters in America. With almost 70 years’ experience we confidently guarantee the materials and workmanship that go into every quartz heater, tank heater, screw plug heater, and flange heater that leaves our Mentor, Ohio Facility. Of course, reliability is more than just the product, it means reliable technical advice, reliable customer service and lead times that you can count on. So if you need reliable over-the-side or l-shaped immersion heaters, or other industrial heaters, Heatmax Heaters is your proven performer.
The Heatmax difference is that we makes our own industrial heating elements in-house. We know the materials and workmanship that go into making a quality tubular heater and that is why we can guarantee it. Making our own heater elements also allows us to customize your heater’s performance to your specifications fast, without waiting on outside vendors.

– INDUSTRIAL THERMO PRODUCTS
Founded by an ex-Navy engineer, George Strokes, the company got its start making quartz immersion heaters in Euclid, Ohio in 1952.
George called the company Glo-Quartz®.
Growing rapidly he moved the company to bigger premises in Willoughby and then Mentor. Other factories were opened in Pasadena, California (now closed) and then Tucson, Arizona.
Tom Strokes took over leadership of Glo-Quartz in the mid-70s and moved to roll reduced metal heating element range.
A final legacy, Tom launched a new brand name, Heatmax Heaters, in 2020. The new brand name both better represented the wide range of products we make and challenged the common perception that we were quartz heater specialists only.
