EFD Induction acquires Electronic Heating Equipment, Inc.

EFD Induction has announced its acquisition of Electronic Heating Equipment (EHE), Inc., a leading supplier of impeders, coils, scarfing equipment and related products to tube and pipe manufacturers around the world. Commenting on the acquisition, EFD Induction CEO Eivin Jørgensen says “EHE is a dynamic enterprise that since its foundation in 1980 has won the trust and confidence of top tube and pipe makers. The company is a perfect fit for us to strengthen our presence in North America, and to further expand in the global tube and pipe market.”

EHE builds customized coils, impeder and scarfing assemblies, components critical for highproductivity welding. “The acquisition,” says Jørgensen, “means EFD Induction now offers tube and pipe manufacturers everything from high-uptime solid-state welders to specialized coils, impeders and scarfing products. And since induction welders, impeders and ID scarfing equipment all have to work together, there are obvious benefits to customers in having EFD Induction as a single source. We can ensure that impeders and coils work with the ID scarfing equipment so that each welder operates at optimum efficiency.”

EHE founder John Wright will continue as managing director of Washington state-based EHE for the next several months. He will continue to work for both EHE and EFD Induction as a consultant. “We’re thrilled to be able to call on John’s expertise in the future,” says Jørgensen. “His experience and contacts will be invaluable as we continue to grow the business.”

The tube and pipe welding industry accounts for a significant part of EFD Induction’s global business. The company’s ‘Weldac’ range of solid-state induction welders are sold around the world, and are particularly popular with makers of pipe for the oil and gas industries. EFD Induction also recently announced the launch of a range of smaller, lower-power ‘Weldac’ welders to meet growing global demand.
