The shared responsibilities include heat treating and metallurgical engineering technology and processes.

Xtek, of Cincinnati, OH, manufactures custom machined and heat treated parts for industrial applications. Metlab, of Philadelphia, PA, is a metallurgical consulting, heat treat and surface enhancement company.
