Solar Atmospheres completes expansion to double heat treating capacity
January 30, 2018
Solar Atmospheres of California (SCA), located in Fontana, California, USA, has announced the completion of its facility expansion, doubling the company’s current heat treating capacity in the region to meet the needs of an ever growing customer base.
Plans to expand were announced in 2016, with ground breaking for a new 25,000 sq. ft. building. Upon completion of building construction in July 2017 and, applying the lessons learned from SCA’s initial facility build in 2010-11, SCA immediately began the design, fabrication and installation of all required support systems including water and gas delivery.
In preparation for the added growth, SCA has acquired an additional four vacuum furnaces from sister company Solar Manufacturing (SMI) based in Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA.
“We are very thankful for the opportunity to grow our facility,” stated Derek Dennis, President, Solar Atmospheres of California. “Every SCA employee appreciates the trust and confidence that our customers have placed in our abilities to service their Vacuum Heat Treating, Brazing and Carburizing requirements.”
