  • Powerhouse Equipment utilizes the latest technology and understanding of boilers to ensure that customers receive the best quality boilers and boiler services throughout the entire Mid-Atlantic region in which we cater to. Recently, Powerhouse rejoined up with the American Boilers Manufacturers Association (ABMA) to further our efforts in becoming both knowledgeable and helpful to customers in the world of industrial boilers.

    The ABMA was established in 1888 by an effort from boiler manufacturers to help ensure safe boiler construction with the best possible materials. At the time, boilers were nowhere near as safely manufactured as they are today. The result was a high number of boiler incidents and danger present to those who worked in industrial capacities near boilers. Since the creation of the ABMA, boiler manufacturers, industries, and the government have been able to effectively communicate needs, new ideas, and legislation requirements between one another. This has resulted in a safer world and less boiler emergencies!

    Whenever industries begin to operate, there are always concerns that come about. In addition to safety for workers, emphasis on environmental protection and policy has also been important. The ABMA has helped bridge the gap between the policy makers and the boiler manufacturers, ensuring that everyone is on the same page and that the quality construction and maintaining of boilers continues to develop in the right direction.
