September 12, 2016
Bodycote, the world’s largest thermal processing services provider, has announced that it has acquired Nitrex Metal Technologies headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Nitrex Metal Technologies serves the North American market with precision gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburising in both batch and continuous forms.
Continuous gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing are unique in the industry and are particularly suited to high-volume automotive work. The addition of Nitrex Metal Technologies to the Bodycote Group broadens the range of thermal processing services that Bodycote offers, which range from conventional atmosphere heat treatments to more exotic specialty technologies.
“Nitrex Metal Technologies is a great addition to the Bodycote Group. Along with the rest of Bodycote’s existing service offerings, this acquisition really cements our position as the go-to expert source for all things nitriding,” stated Dan McCurdy, President of Bodycote Automotive and General Industrial Heat Treating in North America and Asia.
