Bodycote recently held an official opening ceremony at its new heat-treatment facility in Prague, Czech Republic. The plant, now fully operational and supporting customer requirements, provides a range of heat-treatment services and will support the automotive and general industrial markets in the region.

Bodycote has operated a heat-treatment plant in Prague since the early 1990s but had outgrown its site due to growth and demand. The new facility was built to replace the old central Prague facility with additional space for anticipated future growth. It is also strategically located close to transport networks and the international airport.
