Bodycote, U.K., the world’s largest provider of heat treatment and specialist thermal processing services, announces plans to open a new heat treating facility by late 2019 in Elgin, Illinois. The plant will support the automotive, agricultural, mining, construction, and various other manufacturing supply chains in the Upper Midwest region.


The new facility will include advanced heat treating technologies such as low-pressure carburizing and carbonitriding, vacuum nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing, Bodycote’s proprietary Corr-I-Dur process, and traditional carburizing of large parts.


According to Dan McCurdy, President Automotive & General Industrial, North America & Asia division, “This investment demonstrates Bodycote’s commitment to serving the Midwest with the services our customers ask for and require.”
