Alfe Heat Treating Invests in New Facility


Alfe Heat Treating, the largest aluminum heat treater in the United States, has recently completed a $20 million dollar capital equipment investment to retool its Definance, Ohio plant to support new, high efficiency automotive engines. The fully automated, lights-out plant can process one engine very 49 sconds. This high-speed, efficient approach allows Alfe to meet 100 percent of the manufacturers’ needs for the specified product lines.

Alfe Definance employes the unique “condo” building approach on this site, which means housing multiple suppliers in a single location and using automation to transport parts from one supplier to the other. The shared location provides heat treating, shot blasting, X-ray, machining, leak testing, impregnation, and additional secondary services.
