Bodycote announced that its Chesterfield, UK Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) location earned, for the second time, the highest level of Nadcap accreditation following the most recent Nadcap audit. The official approval was awarded on Feb. 2, 2017.
As one of the original HIP facilities to achieve this standard, the site is now targeting to further extend its Merit status. The award builds on a long history of supplying Hot Isostatic Pressing to the world's prime aerospace manufacturers and their first tier suppliers.
Moving forward, the Chesterfield site continues to play a strategic, long term role for new aerospace high technology programs, and Bodycote continues to invest in resources and capital for development and operations to meet the demands required for this future growth.
