Bodycote Acquires Nitrex Metal Technologies and Relocates Texas Facility
September 23, 2016
Bodycote has acquired Nitrex Metal Technologies. Nitrex Metal Technologies specializes in precision gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing in both batch and continuous forms. Continuous gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing are unique in the industry and are particularly suited to high-volume
automotive work. The addition of Nitrex Metal Technologies to the Bodycote Group broadens the range of thermal processing services that Bodycote offers, which already range from conventional atmosphere heat treatments like batch IQ, vacuum, and induction to more exotic specialty technologies like LPC, BoroCote, and Corr-I-Dur.
“Nitrex Metal Technologies is a great addition to the Bodycote Group. Along with the rest of Bodycote’s existing service offerings, this acquisition really cements our position as the go-to expert source for all things nitriding," said Dan McCurdy, president of Bodycote Automotive and General Industrial Heat Treating in North America and Asia.
Additionally, Bodycote has announced plans to open a new Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas location in Haltom City. The existing Fort Worth business, on Montgomery Street, will be relocated due to redevelopment of the area. A new heat treatment facility is being constructed in Haltom City and a ground
breaking ceremony took place at the new location on August 26, 2016, attended by The Honorable Mayor David Averitt and other Haltom City Council members.
Bodycote is in a strong position to continue supporting its supply chain partners in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, with ample capacity and a diverse set of capabilities to meet their specific needs. The new facility will hold international quality standards including Nadcap, AS9100 and ISO9001, as well as OEM approvals.
