Advanced Heat Treat Corp. (AHT), a recognized leader in heat-treat services and metallurgical solutions, recently announced building expansions at its Monroe, Michigan, and Waterloo, Iowa, locations. The extra space will allow AHT to add more equipment and services.

The Michigan AHT location is expanding its pit where nitriding vessels are housed. The space will allow for two additional large nitriders.

AHT Burton, referred to by the street name as there are two locations in Waterloo, Iowa, is adding additional square footage onto its building. The expansion will allow for additional equipment and services to be added. The expansion is expected to be complete mid-summer.

Advanced Heat Treat Corp. in Monroe, Michigan opened in 1995 and currently offers UltraGlow® gas and ion nitriding, UltraOx®, ferritic nitrocarburizing, stress relieve, and more.

While the expansions are the first for the Michigan and Burton facilities since 2006 and 2007, respectively, AHT recently doubled the shop floor at its corporate headquarters in Waterloo, Iowa, this past February.

AHT President Mike Woods said, “We’re very excited about the growth AHT has seen over the past few years. Because of this, we felt it was necessary to expand our facilities and invest in additional equipment to better serve our customers and capture more of the market.”

Last month, AHT also added two new induction units at the Burton Ave location, providing even better turnaround times and expanding capacity for large parts.

AHT has four locations: two in Waterloo, Iowa; one in Monroe, Michigan; and a fourth in Cullman, Alabama. Among the four locations, it offers more than 20 surface treatments including gas and ion nitriding, induction hardening, carburizing, carbonitriding, and more.   

“This past year has been exciting. We thank everyone involved and look forward to another great year,” Woods said.
