Bodycote has acquired Nitrex Metal Technologies, a specialist in gas nitriding and ferritic nitrocarburizing in both batch and continuous forms.

The addition of Nitrex Metal Technologies to the Bodycote Group will reportedly broaden the range of thermal processing services that Bodycote offers, which range from atmosphere heat treatments like batch IQ, vacuum, and induction to technologies such as 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.’
