Solar Atmospheres, Inc, headquartered in Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA, has acquired Michigan-based heat treating company Vac-Met, Inc. Vac-Met has two facilities in the region, one in Warren and the other in Fraser, from which it has built a heat-treating presence in the Midwest over the last forty-one years.
The addition of Vac-Met will increase Solar Atmospheres’ total commercial vacuum heat treating and brazing facilities to five plants across the US. Joseph White will continue to head the day-to-day operation of Vac-Met’s nine vacuum furnaces while leading the team he has built within the company. He will report to Robert Hill, president of Solar Atmospheres of Western PA.
“We look forward to continuing to provide unparalleled vacuum thermal processing services to Vac-Met’s valued customers while expanding Solar’s footprint,” stated Hill. “Solar is excited to support a dedicated and loyal employee base and welcome them to the Solar team. Together, we will grow the business with unwavering commitment to honesty as our core value.”
