Solar Atmospheres and Kittyhawk partner to offer heat treating and HIP

October 28, 2020

Heat treatment specialist Solar Atmospheres of California, Fontana, California, USA, and Kittyhawk, a Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) company headquartered in Garden Grove, California, USA, have announced a strategic partnership for heat treating and HIP services.

Founded in 1981, Kittyhawk provides HIP services to companies in the aerospace, commercial, military, medical, automotive, firearms and oil & gas industries.

“The partnership between Solar Atmospheres and Kittyhawk is a natural fit, as both companies are market leaders in their respective industries,” stated Brandon Creason, president of Kittyhawk. “This partnership allows the customer to take advantage of Hot Isostatic Pressing and heat treat without having to look further.”
