SC Company Reinvents Water Heating

South Carolina Business Review logo

Four years ago, when we last interviewed our next guest, his company had just received an award from InnoVision for his water heater technology.  They’ve done it again with the InnoVision 2018 Technology Development Award.  And the company recently returned from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with several more awards.

Mike Switzer interviews Jerry Callahan, founder and CEO of Heatworks in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
