When and how did your business get started?
Detroit Radiant Products was established in 1955 and is in its third generation as a family-owned business. Since 1955, we have introduced nearly 40 different series of infrared heaters, with a continued development and production of innovative energy efficient heating appliances.
What do you love most about the foodservice E&S industry?
We love getting the opportunity to try out a new market for infrared heating and LED lighting. After all, high-quality food is the name of the game—and we’re confident we can help with that. We’re excited to see how those in the foodservice E&S industry receive our cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions.

What do you find most challenging about the foodservice E&S industry?
Finding our place as a small niche provider of LED lighting, infrared heating and infrared burners. The great and unique part about being in our specific space is that our products can be used in a variety of ways and settings. In fact, some people have even tried to apply our heating equipment into their own personal backyard BBQ (though we wouldn’t recommend it)!
What excites you about joining NAFEM?
