HWI to attend the Masonry Heaters Association Annual Meeting

Benjamin Stanton, manager of new business development, will be on hand to present on Refractories 101 at the upcoming Masonry Heater Association (MHA) annual meeting.  MHA is an association of builders, manufacturers, and retailers of masonry heaters and masonry wood fired bake ovens whose purpose is to promote the industry, sponsor research and development, and shape regulations, standards, and codes. They also work to inform and educate the public, while furthering the expertise and professionalism of their membership.

Each year, the association holds a retreat for hundreds of members to get together for multiple days of learning, demonstrating, and networking. As a new member, HWI is looking forward to being among the guests this year. Stanton sees this as an opportunity to network with MHA members from across the globe building lasting business relationships for the future.

The meeting will be held April 9 – 13, 2018 at the Wildacres Retreat in Little Switzerland, NC.
