Solar Atmospheres and Kittyhawk partner to offer heat treating and HIP

October 28, 2020

Heat treatment specialist Solar Atmospheres of California, Fontana, California, USA, and Kittyhawk, a Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) company headquartered in Garden Grove, California, USA, have announced a strategic partnership for heat treating and HIP services.

Founded in 1981, Kittyhawk provides HIP services to companies in the aerospace, commercial, military, medical, automotive, firearms and oil & gas industries. Solar Atmospheres provides vacuum heat treating services to a range of industries including aerospace, automotive, defence, medical, and power generation.

According to the companies, the partnership comes in response to customers’ increasing search for value-added propositions. As many parts require heat treating and HIP, the new partnership allows the customer to work with two companies that have extensive experience and a strong reputation within the industry.

Solar Atmospheres and Kittyhawk are both Nadcap, ISO9001, and AS9100 certified, and reportedly maintain source approvals for a full line of major aerospace primes. 

“The partnership between Solar Atmospheres and Kittyhawk is a natural fit, as both companies are market leaders in their respective industries,” stated Brandon Creason, president of Kittyhawk. “This partnership allows the customer to take advantage of Hot Isostatic Pressing and heat treat without having to look further.”

“I am very excited about the future and more importantly providing our customers with two of the best options in the service industry,” he added.

He continued, “Both companies share a strong focus on quality and bringing a valued service to our customers, coupled with a best in the industry level of customer service and responsiveness, and you have a winning partnership for success.”
