Bodycote announced that its Chesterfield, U.K., hot isostatic pressing (HIP) location earned, for the second time, the highest level of Nadcap accreditation following its most recent Nadcap audit. The official approval was awarded on Feb. 2.

The site is now aiming to further extend its merit status, building on a long history of supplying HIP services to aerospace prime manufacturers and their first-tier suppliers. Moving forward, the Chesterfield site will continue to play a strategic, long-term role for new aerospace high-technology programs.
