Bodycote will open a new, state-of-the-art heat-treatment plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The 100,000-square-foot facility, established to serve the country’s extensive and growing automotive supply chain, will be capable of supporting large automotive projects and providing heat-treatment services for technologically advanced components. The plant, which will be TS 16949 certified and hold all required OEM quality approvals, will offer low-pressure carburizing, ferritic nitrocarburizing and Bodycote’s proprietary Corr-I-Dur® process. The San Luis Potosi facility, scheduled to be fully operational by the fourth quarter of this year, will be Bodycote’s third plant in Mexico.
