Advanced Heat Treat completes building expansion in Iowa


Advanced Heat Treat Corp. (AHT), a recognized leader in heat-treat services and metallurgical solutions, announced the completion of the 15,000-square foot building expansion at its corporate headquarters located in Waterloo, Iowa.

The milestone was celebrated February 7 with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting, with the AHT brand color of purple. AHT employees, government officials, local economic leaders, and the contractors and construction crew attended.

AHT President Mike Woods said, “The expansion is a knockout! A great group of people — both internally and externally — put their minds together on a mission and created a great extension of our facility. We’re excited about the additional space that’s going to allow us to grow, bring on new services, and enable us to better serve our customer base.”

Last month, AHT announced its three new gas nitriding units with plans for a fourth before the end of the year; these units are housed in the new addition in order to separate the gas nitriding equipment from the ion (plasma) nitriding units at the corporate headquarters.

AHT has four locations: two in Waterloo, Iowa; one in Monroe, Michigan; and a fourth in Cullman, Alabama. AHT also plans to expand its Burton Avenue location in Waterloo, where traditional heat-treating services such as induction hardening and carburizing are

Woods said, “This past year has been exciting. We attribute this to our amazing employees, great relationships with our customers, and our continual investment in the future. We thank everyone involved and look forward to another great year.”
