Bodycote Opens New Georgia Heat Treatment Plant

MACCLESFIELD (U.K.) — Bodycote, the world’s largest thermal processing services provider, is pleased to announce that its new heat treatment plant in Covington, GA is now open. 

The brand new 60,0002ft facility, established to replace the existing Conyers plant, will primarily serve automotive and general industrial customers, offering all of the processes and capabilities which had been offered at the Conyers location as well as the addition of ferritic nitrocarburizing.

At more than double the size of the plant it replaces, the new Covington facility immediately increases the capacity available to serve the Georgia and Florida marketplaces with a wide range of heat treatment processes.

This investment is part of Bodycote’s further expansion in the Southeast USA.
