Firms sign exclusive partnership agreement for sales of DFW watertube boilers with Superior's newly patented design.

PRESS RELEASE

HUTCHINSON, KS. (July 13, 2022) – Superior Boiler has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with Nationwide Boiler Inc. (NBI) to jointly market and sell certain watertube boilers using Superior’s recently patented DFW design.

Under the agreement, Nationwide Boiler will lead the marketing and sales activity of watertube boilers with the DFW design incorporated in Superior’s O-type boiler and Ds-type boiler for rental boiler applications and other joint special projects worldwide. Superior and Nationwide will jointly promote sales of all watertube boilers utilizing the DFW design within California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and the Gulf Coast of Texas, where NBI is Superior’s long-standing authorized sales representative.

The agreement will combine Superior’s strong North American presence with NBI’s global reach, leveraging the combined resources and strengths of each company to make DFW technology available to customers worldwide.

“Superior and Nationwide share a long and successful history that is only getting better with time,” said Doug Wright, Superior’s president and CEO. “NBI aligns closely with the company characteristics Superior strives for, including quality first, integrity and customer support. We believe our partnership agreement to promote and sell the advanced DFW design will provide end customers with an exceptional product and a support team they can rely on for outstanding responsiveness and expertise.”

Superior’s patented DFW technology represents engineering advancements that significantly improve the company’s watertube boiler designs. NBI already has purchased and put into service several of these types of boilers and has clearly demonstrated the advantages of the enhanced boiler design.

“Nationwide Boiler has long been a pioneer in the rental boiler industry, being first to market with new products and improved designs,” said Nationwide Boiler President and CEO Larry Day. “The DFW concept goes back to 2018, working closely with Sundeep Bodapati at Superior, to think innovatively and design a higher-capacity boiler with a small footprint. Bodapati’s revolutionary concept not only accomplishes high capacity in a small footprint, but also has the advantages of faster load response, lower thermal NOx and lower rear-wall temperature without compromising boiler efficiency or performance. In the rental business, size and weight are major factors for mobility and freight cost. This new design allows us to get 25% more capacity out of the same footprint, which achieves a major savings in customer shipping cost and delivery time.”
