HeatLink Management

Manfred Schmidt – President
As a co-founder of HeatLink, Manfred's experience in the heating and plumbing industry extends over 35 years. He started training and working in the HVAC segment, initially to support his dream of becoming a pilot. He received his initial HVAC training and diploma from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. However, his exposure to European hydronic floor heating in the 1980s piqued his interest, and eventually developed into a passion. He was able to specialize in this area through his family's business, and then took it one step further with the founding of HeatLink. His enthusiasm helped foster the development and expansion of floor heating technology in North America, providing him with the opportunity to do hundreds of training seminars in numerous cities, towns and villages across Canada and the USA.  He expanded HeatLink to several other countries, including Ireland, China and Mexico. He has been on numerous CIPH (Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating) committees, and is currently on the board of the CHC (Canadian Hydronics Council). His passion for flying never diminished, and he has completed his private pilot license, and commercial and IFR pilot exams
