Macclesfield-based Bodycote (www.bodycote.com
), a leading provider of heat treatments and specialist thermal processing services, is opening a new ‘state of the art’ heat treatment facility in the USA.
The new purpose-built facility in Elgin, Illinois, which will be opened in June, has been designed as a replacement for Bodycote’s ageing facility in nearby Melrose Park. It will support manufacturing supply chains in the Midwest region — the Melrose Park facility will be closed once the transfer of customers’ work has been completed.
Bodycote continues to invest in acquiring, updating and building new facilities with new capacity and more operationally efficient services. The new Elgin facility is part of this ongoing strategy as the company strives to provide the best possible capabilities, mix, and geographical network to better serve customers.
Tom Gibbons, president of classical heat treatment (North America), said: “I am delighted to be able to announce the opening of our plant in Elgin. Our investment in the new facility enables us to expand our capacity and improve our ability to deliver high-quality heat treatment capabilities to our customers.”
