As the Heat Tracing Division of Cooperheat we developed unique products and systems for specific applications. Manufacturing of these products and systems were subcontracted to various companies around the world.  After we becoming a separate corporation, we opened our own production facility and began manufacturing these products and systems ourselves to better control all facets of our business.  With reduced costs and quality improvements inherent with being the manufacturer, HTD Heat Trace has sustained significant growth and most recently, have relocated our headquarters and complete manufacturing operation to a new, larger facility in central New Jersey.
