Seco/Vacuum Technologies, the newest company in the Seco/Warwick Group of companies, reported a strong initial entry into the North American vacuum heat treating market. To-date, the new company which officially launched in early 2017 has received orders for eight new vacuum furnace systems in its first two months of existence.
According to Bill Warwick, VP of sales for the company, orders for new, high technology vacuum furnaces "have come from the aviation industry, the US military and the commercial heat treating industry. We're pleased with the level of business we're seeing this year even in the face of declining business for many others in the industry. Our commitment to provide a technically advanced furnace system with intuitive, advanced controls and unwavering obsession to see our customers happy not only with the initial purchase, but with the total experience of owning one of our furnaces has really resonated with the marketplace. Our initial order levels are proof."
Warwick also announced that the company will host an open house in the second quarter of 2018. The open house will mark the opening of the company's Vacuum Technology Showroom which will house production-scale demonstration equipment with the capability of running sample loads from customers.
Exact dates of the open house will be released soon pending the delivery and installation of the company's keystone product, a Vector vacuum furnace. Backed by the industry's most extensive R&D program to help validate current processes and push the boundaries of vacuum thermal processing, the company is dedicated to helping customers succeed.
