WATERLOO, IA — Advanced Heat Treat Corp. (AHT) has purchased a gas nitride unit to expand its capacity for UltraGlow® Gas Nitriding and UltraOx® surface treatment solutions at its Corporate Office and Service Center in Waterloo, IA. This new, large, state-of-the-art gas nitride/high temperature unit will also allow increased capacity of currently offered services including gas ferritic nitrocarburizing (FNC) and stress relief.
Nearly 37 years ago, the company started with just two ion nitriding units at one location and has grown to over 50 units across its four locations in Alabama, Iowa and Michigan. By solving wear, corrosion and abrasion problems with their UltraGlow® family of processes, the company has grown significantly and continues to invest in the future.
“We are seeing substantial opportunity for gas nitriding/FNC applications in agriculture, construction, automotive, oil, gas and industries where corrosion resistance is imperative. The addition of this unit will also allow us to expand our UltraOx® capacity, a trademarked process of AHT that was launched in 2013 and is increasingly replacing QPQ, nickel plating, chrome plating and salt bath in many applications.
We are fortunate to be able to meet customer demand and invest in the future with the addition of new gas nitriding/FNC equipment. Our commitment to quality and service has allowed us the growth to make this purchase possible, and we are truly thankful for that.” stated Mikel Woods, AHT President.
With the added capacity, Advanced Heat Treat Corp. will also need additional part time and full time laborers. Please check back often for current job openings!
