TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Heat Pipe Technology, Inc., a division of MiTek®, a Berkshire Hathaway company (NYSE: BRK-A, NYSE: BRK-B), today announced that it has hired a new Engineering Manager. This position will be filled by Marcus D’Arcy, and the hiring of Mr. D’Arcy is part of an effort by Heat Pipe Technology (HPT) to staff up its new, expanded Tampa headquarters. In his new role, Mr. D’Arcy will manage all of HPT’s research and development efforts, which will involve testing and improving HPT’s products.
Mr. D’Arcy will also manage the design team that provides the engineering data HPT needs to manufacture its wrap-around moisture-removal dehumidification and energy-recovery systems, which have been shown to increase an HVAC system’s capability by up to 50%.
Previous to HPT, Mr. D’Arcy was Chief Engineer for Tampa-based Thermotech Enterprises. Additionally, Mr. D’Arcy holds a Masters Degree in Engineering from Trinity College, Oxford University, UK.
