Bodycote Acquires Nitrex Metal Technologies


Bodycote, one of the world’s leading thermal processing services provider, recently announced that it 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,” said Dan McCurdy, president of Bodycote Automotive and General Industrial Heat Treating in North America and Asia. “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”.
