CATAWISSA, Pa. - The first annual OilStock - an informal gathering of oil heat professionals - will be held on Friday, June 24 in Hamburg, Pa. The event will take place at the Oil Tech Talk Training, Research & Development Center.

According to event sponsor and founder of Oil Tech Talk Training, Alan Mercurio, OilStock "is going to be one of the best investments you'll ever make in this business."

Patterned after the highly successful Wetstock meetings for the wet heat industry, OilStock will concentrate on trends in the oil heat industry and discussion on better ways to run an oil heat contracting business.

"Don't worry about food. We'll be having a pig roast and plenty of other treats to keep you full," Mercurio said.

There will be 10 tables dedicated to an open and educational discussion on topics including continued education, combustion principles, steam systems, forced hot water systems, forced warm-air applications, controls, and chimneys and liners.

Registration is limited to 100 people. For more information, visit or call 570-356-2806.
