Thermon Group Holdings, Inc (NYSE:THR) sells and installs heat tracing for industrial plans in the energy, chemical, and power generation market. Heat tracing is used to provide an external source of heat to pipes to prevent them from freezing, to control their temperature, and regulate flow. Thermon makes money by installing the products on new facilities and by upgrading or expanding at existing facilities. Because of the difficulties with compatibilities, facilities generally use the same company to maintain and upgrade their facilities. As a result, Thermon's new facility clients tend to switch to recurring existing clients within one to three years of the initial instillation.[1]

In order to match the natural declines in the supply of oil and gas producers must move to increasingly deep wells and increasingly harsh climates. This movement forces the facilities to install heat tracing equipment to prevent their both raw and refined goods from freezing. In addition, heat tracing is increasingly installed to simply improve the rate of flow and, as a result increase through put and lower costs. This trend will increase the demand for the products that Thermon makes and installs.[2]

The company's initial public offering of stock on the NYSE occurred on May 4, 2011. The company offered 10M shares each for $12. This was at the low end of the $12-$14initial price range.

For the full year 2010, Thermon's total revenues were $192.7M. The company experienced a net income of $18.9M. [4]
