Nationwide Boiler Inc. is excited to announce the company's new Venezuelan representative, QIS De Venezuela, C.A. QIS has been instrumental in securing a new boiler sale to a refinery customer located in Venezuela and this new agreement not only helps Nationwide Boiler gain new opportunities in Venezuela, but it also aids in Nationwide Boiler's on-going efforts to develop relationships in additional regions within South America.
Jeff Shallcross, Nationwide Boiler's CEO explains, "This new partnership is well aligned with the company's global strategic initiatives. QIS' vast experience and knowledge of the Venezuelan market strengthens Nationwide Boiler's ability to supply boiler equipment to industrial end-users searching for a reliable source of steam in Venezuela."

Nationwide Boiler has achieved yet another safety milestone – 2,500 days without a loss time accident! This marks the longest length of time Nationwide has gone without an accident in our forty-four years of operation. The company maintains a shop facility of 26,000 sq.ft., used for the maintenance, repair and assembly of boiler systems and auxiliaries. Nationwide Boiler’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR), a benchmark measure used for insurance premium discounts that compares worker compensation claims to other employers of similar size operating in the same type of business, has greatly improved over the last seven years. To date, Nationwide Boiler has realized a cumulative cost savings of over three-hundred-thousand dollars as a result of the company's commitments to safety.
In an effort to expand worldwide sales, Nationwide Boiler Inc. has recently signed two new representatives that will focus on the rental, leasing and sales of boilers and CataStak™ SCR systems: Dade Hamilton (Coral Gables, FL) and Heat Transfer Specialists (Houston, TX).
Dade Hamilton supplies industrial equipment to the oil and gas, petrochemical, utility, pulp and paper, steel, and sugar industries in Latin America and the Caribbean. This new relationship with Nationwide Boiler will enhance both companies ability to supply new boiler systems internationally, specifically the Babcock & Wilcox Model FM 120-124, 200,000 lb/hr superheated steam package boiler (750 psig / 750°F). As a partner and stocking distributor for the Babcock & Wilcox Company, Nationwide Boiler can ship the Model FM boiler (or any other boiler system in the company’s inventory) anywhere in the world.
Heat Transfer Specialists (HTS) specializes in supplying combustion equipment that provides the latest technology in energy efficiency and low emissions. The company serves industrial users in the oil and gas, refining, petrochemical and power industries. Their strategic location in Houston, TX has helped the company grow into a successful manufacturer’s representative and they are well positioned to increase Nationwide Boiler’s market share in the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) heater market, in addition to providing new opportunities for the sale and rental of boiler systems.
Bill Testa, Nationwide Boiler’s Business Development Manager, played a pivotal role in engaging and securing both representatives for Nationwide Boiler. “Dade Hamilton and Heat Transfer Specialists have both proven themselves to be leading suppliers to customers in their territories. They both possess the experience, expertise and continued commitment to serve their customers to the full extent possible, while continuing to add value and unparalleled customer support. Both companies are welcome additions to the company and we look forward to many new opportunities as a result of these new relationships.”
We want to welcome Dade Hamilton and HTS to Nationwide Boiler and we look forward to the many foreseen opportunities with each of these companies.
