Bodycote plc, a global provider of heat treatment and specialist thermal processing services headquartered in Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK, is expanding its capabilities in North America with the launch of a new heat treating facility in Elgin, Illinois, USA. According to the company, the new facility will offer advanced heat treating technologies such as low pressure carburising and carbonitriding, vacuum nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburising, Bodycote’s Corr-I-Dur® process, and traditional carburising of large parts.

Operating from more than 180 accredited facilities in twenty-three countries, Bodycote provides classical heat treatment and specialist technologies including Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) to a wide range of industries, including aerospace, defence, automotive, power generation, oil & gas, construction, medical and transportation. The new facility is expected to be operational by late 2019, and will reportedly support the automotive, agricultural, mining, construction and other manufacturing supply chains in the Upper Midwest region of the USA.

Dan McCurdy, Bodycote’s President of Automotive & General Industrial, North America & Asia division, stated, “This investment demonstrates Bodycote’s commitment to serving the Midwest with the services our customers ask for and require.”
