Bodycote, the world’s largest thermal-processing services provider, opened a new heat-treatment site in Wroclaw, Poland. Vacuum heat treatment, vacuum brazing and nitriding will initially be offered. Other processes will follow as demand for heat-treatment services in the region continues to grow. Additional services are likely to include HVOF and plasma coatings, vacuum oil quench and aluminum heat treatment. The new facility will hold international quality standards including Nadcap and AS 9100.
Bodycote also announced its intention to open another greenfield heat-treatment site in the aviation valley close to Rzeszow, Poland. The new facility will support the manufacturing supply chains in this region and is expected to be operational by second half of 2016. Both projects are part of the company’s expansion strategy in Eastern Europe.
