Bohler-Uddeholm has announced that the new joint Bohler-Uddeholm Service Center and Eifeler Coatings Technology PVD Coating Center are open for business. This Service Center of Excellence will strengthen Bohler-Uddeholm's tool steel and coatings offer and enhance the material processing capabilities and service in the Eastern Region of the United States.
In an effort to strengthen their overall position and value-added offerings in the marketplace, providing their customers and business partners with cost effective specialty tool steel material solutions, Bohler-Uddeholm Corporation has undertaken a project to enhance their material processing technologies focusing on better efficiencies and capabilities in the Eastern United States.
"This action has allowed us to increase our material saw cutting capabilities and capacity, along with adding larger material handling capabilities (seven MT cranes) and a machining center that has milling and Blanchard grinding capabilities," Jeff Albee, sales manager of region east at Bohler-Uddeholm, said. "This enhances our value-added product offering of square blocks and ground pieces to our valued customers. Our customers can expect same-day/one-day service for most orders. Combined with our extensive specialty tool steel grade offerings, Bohler-Uddeholm Corporation value proposition is second to none!"
"This new Coating Center offers primarily high quality PVD coatings to the metalforming industry in Ohio and neighboring states," Michael Reardanz, quality manager at Bohler-Uddeholm said. "The Duplex-Tigral and Duplex-Variantic coatings will offer many benefits for our customers."
