Bodycote, currently the world’s largest provider of heat treatments and specialist thermal processing services, has announced the opening of a new facility in Syracuse, New York, USA. The new Syracuse facility is the second new facility to be opened in North America in as many months, following on from the launch of a new Elgin, Illinois facility in December 2020.
The Syracuse facility, encompassing 60,000 square feet of operating space, is now operational and offers a wide range of heat treatment processes. These include vacuum heat treating, atmospheric carburizing, low-pressure carburizing, carbonitriding, ferritic nitro carburizing, nitriding, and aluminum heat treating.
It’s expected that the site will secure all major OEM approvals, as well as Nadcap accreditation, which is already in the works.
“We are very pleased to announce the opening of another new facility in the USA, this time in Syracuse, New York,” said Stephen Harris, Bodycote group chief executive. “This investment demonstrates Bodycote’s continuing commitment to align resources to serve our customers across North America.”
This investment is part of Bodycote’s further expansion in America. The company 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 quality.
