Bodycote Plc, a provider of heat treatments and specialist thermal processing services, has opened a new facility in Syracuse, New York, USA.
The new Syracuse facility is Bodycote’s second new site to be opened in North America, following on from the announcement of the opening of the new Elgin, Illinois, facility in December 2020.
The Syracuse factory, encompassing approximately 5,574m2 of operating space, is now operational and offers a wide range of heat treatment processes. These include vacuum heat treating, atmospheric carburising, low pressure carburising, carbonitriding, ferritic nitro carburising, nitriding and aluminium heat treating. Bodycote believes that the site will secure all major OEM approvals as well as Nadcap accreditation, which it is already well on the way to achieving.
Stephen Harris, Bodycote group chief executive, comments: “We are very pleased to announce the opening of another new facility in the USA. This investment demonstrates Bodycote’s continuing commitment to align resources to serve our customers across North America.”
Bodycote is committed to offering world-class heat treating services and is investing in improvements as part of an ongoing strategy to provide the best possible capabilities combined with superior quality. Bodycote’s geographic network is constantly evolving with growth targeted at serving both its customers current and future needs.
