Bodycote, the world’s largest provider of heat treatments and specialist thermal processing services, will open a new state of the art facility in Elgin, Illinois, in the United States.

The new purpose-built facility has been designed as a replacement for Bodycote’s aging facility in Melrose Park, Illinois. The Elgin facility is scheduled to be operational in June 2020.
