Bodycote to Open Two New U.S. Facilities
Bodycote will open two new heat-treatment plants in the southeast U.S. A plant in Covington, Ga., will open in spring 2016 to replace the nearby Conyers facility. The new facility, primarily serving automotive and general industrial customers, will occupy a space more than double the size of the existing Conyers facility, immediately increasing capacity to serve the Georgia and Florida markets with a wide range of heat-treatment processes. A new Nadcap-accredited facility will be established in Greenville, S.C., that will serve the region’s aerospace manufacturing supply chains with vital heat-treating and brazing requirements. The plant is scheduled to be operational in mid-2016 and will provide further expansion opportunities to install additional key services in response to customer demand.
