Gasbarre Thermal Processing Systems, headquartered in DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced the opening of a 715 m2 (7,700 ft2) technical centre in Livonia, Michigan, USA. Alongside locations in St Marys, Pennsylvania and Cranston, Rhode Island, this technical centre is said to be another step towards Gasbarre better positioning themselves to support its customers whilst advancing its product offering.
The technical centre will house sales, engineering and service personnel, achieving a core initiative to have qualified personnel to support the large customer base in the American Midwest region. Gasbarre is currently in the process of installing both atmosphere and vacuum processing equipment in the technical centre to support product development, customer trials and demonstrations.
“The opening of the technical centre not only maintains our presence in the Midwest, but also allows us to have a convenient location for customers and vendors to meet with our experienced team,” stated Ben Gasbarre, president of Industrial Furnace Systems. “The furnace equipment being installed will give us the flexibility to process material in both atmosphere and vacuum environments. The technical centre is a key addition for us to continue to position ourselves as a leader in the thermal processing market and provide solutions to our growing customer base.”
