Ed Cook and Mike Wilkinson founded Thermal Economy in 1981. At that time, Thermal Economy was primarily a manufacturer’s representative selling industrial burners, economizers, boiler controls, and related power equipment.
In 1995, Bruce Darling joined the company. The company continued to operate as a manufacturer’s representative, but soon added control systems project design and fabrication, field service work, project management, and customer training. Over time, the control system portion of Thermal Economy grew substantially, and today it represents the largest segment of our sales.
