2nd Anniversary for “Heat Treat Today” — and the Thanks Goes to You

A Special Message from Doug Glenn, Publisher

We have two years under our belt and what a blast we’re having helping manufacturers with in-house heat treat departments, especially those in the aerospace, automotive, medical, and energy sectors, stay up-to-date on the latest heat treating technology, tips, tricks, and news. As we celebrate this 2nd anniversary, it is appropriate to express our sincere thanks to a number of people.

First, thank you to the following companies for having faith in Heat Treat Today to carry their marketing message to the heat treat marketplace:

There are several industry veterans who have helped us procure content that appeals to and serves our in-house heat treating audience. I’d like to express a special thanks to:

I am also thankful to one other unnamed company who has been very supportive and patient as we’ve built Heat Treat Today. They’ve done so in large part quite sacrificially. I am sincerely indebted to this company and especially to the top management team there for their moral and selfless support.

I’d also like to thank the Heat Treat Today team:

  • Mary Glenn, also known as the lovely and gracious Mrs. Glenn (my wife), who has served in multiple roles during the last two years — editor and audience development among them. Thank you, Mary, for your invaluable support!
  • Brandon Glenn, who is not my son even though he looks very much like he could be. Brandon has been responsible for all the website development and e-newsletter designs, and it is he who makes sure all the correct ads are running on the website each month. (For the record, he’s my brother’s son!)
  • Laura Miller joined our team a year ago as a contributing editor and has very quickly become a cornerstone of our efforts. Laura is the one who provides the daily content. She’s doing a wonderful job. Thank you, Laura.
  • Jonathan Condon, a very talented young man who attended the same Presbyterian church and does a great job with our Heat Treat Radio podcasts. Jonathan is finishing up college and finds time to produce our podcasts very proficiently.
  • Jonathan’s mother, Kelly Condon, recently joined the team helping with billing and other administrative work. (not pictured)

Heat Treat Today would not be possible without all of the above advertisers, industry veterans, and team members. A big 2nd anniversary “thank you” to all. And it should not go without saying that all of us at Heat Treat Today are thankful to God for his blessings as we’ve navigated these first two years. Anything good we’ve done is really His fault!! Any mistakes: our fault!

Two years ago there was no Heat Treat Today. Two years ago there was no Heat Treat Radio. Two years ago, there was no Heat Treat Shop. Who knows what the years ahead will bring? Lord willing, we’ll continue to grow in our usefulness to the industry, and more and more in-house heat treaters will find the content and manner of delivery of that content helpful. The fact is, we have a LOT of ideas that we’re currently working on. Keep your eyes on Heat Treat Today. There should be more good stuff coming in the future.

With sincere thanks,

Doug Glenn, Publisher
