Aalberts Surface Technologies GmbH, headquartered in Kerpen, Germany, has announced the formation of a new HIP, braze and heat treatment business unit in the US. Through a merger of two existing business units, ‘Aalberts surface technologies – Specialized Heat Treatment US’ and ‘Aalberts surface technologies – accurate brazing’, the combined companies will now operate as ‘Aalberts surface technologies – HIP | braze | heat treatment’.

Specialized Heat Treatment US was formed when Premier Thermal, Applied Process, and Ionic Technologies were rebranded as Aalberts surface technologies – specialized heat treatment US in 2022. Accurate Brazing was founded in 1989 in Goffstown, NH and has been part of the Aalberts family since 2006, rebranding as ‘Aalberts surface technologies – accurate brazing’ in 2022.

“Over the course of thirty years, Accurate Brazing has built a strong reputation, partnering with our customers in pursuit of shared success. Moving forward as Aalberts surface technologies – HIP | braze | heat treatment, we will continue that partnership, providing an even stronger portfolio of thermal processing technologies,” stated Brent Davis, formerly president of Accurate Brazing, and now serving as a Director of Operations for the new division.

The realignment includes the thirteen facilities operating as Specialized Heat Treatment US and the four facilities operating as ‘Aalberts surface technologies – accurate brazing’. With these facilities, ‘Aalberts surface technologies – HIP | braze | heat treatment’ is one of the largest providers of thermal processing and metal joining technologies in the US.

Steve Wyatt now leads Aalberts surface technologies – HIP | braze | heat treatment as its president, and rebranding activities have started and will continue throughout 2023. Day-to-day plant operations will be largely unaffected.

“The Aalberts’ brand is defined by its deep commitment to winning with people, mission-critical technologies, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Having our US thermal processing businesses operate within a single business unit creates an integrated organisation that offers a wider array of technologies to our customers. With our commitment to cutting-edge technologies and access to global resources, we are positioned well, with an eye on the future,” concluded Wyatt.
