Bodycote Announces Opening of Two Heat Treatment Plants in Southeast US

January 19, 2016

Bodycote has announced that the company will open two new heat treatment plants in Southeastern USA.

In Covington, GA, a new plant will open in Spring, 2016 to replace the nearby Conyers facility. The new plant, primarily serving automotive and general industrial customers, will occupy a space more than double the size of the existing Conyers facility, immediately increasing capacity to serve the Georgia and Florida marketplaces with a wide range of heat treatment processes.

In South Carolina, a new Nadcap-accredited facility will be established at Greenville, and will serve the region's aerospace manufacturing supply chains with vital heat treating and brazing requirements. The plant is scheduled to be operational mid-2016 and provides further expansion opportunities to install additional key Bodycote services in response to customer demand.

These new facilities are part of Bodycote's investment and expanded services strategy to serve the diverse range of industries in the Southeast USA.
