Advanced Heat Treat Corp., Adds Capacity

Advanced Heat Treat Corp. (AHT) has expanded capacity for Nadcap work at its corporate office and service center located in Waterloo, Iowa. Having added gas nitriding to its Nadcap® accreditation (merit status) this past winter, AHT now offers both Nadcap-accredited gas nitriding and ion nitriding. All AHT sites remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic to serve customers in critical markets such as aerospace, defense, agriculture and health care. 

Established in 1981, AHT is a recognized global leader in providing heat treat services and metallurgical solutions. Between locations in Alabama, Iowa and Michigan, AHT offers over 20 surface treatments including UltraGlow® Ion/Gas Nitriding and Nitrocarburizing, UltraOx®, UltraGlow Induction, carburizing, quench & temper and more. AHT had record-breaking sales last year. Approaching its 40th year, the company credits its success to its loyal employees (42% have been at AHT for over 10 years) and a focus on “exceeding customers’ expectations.”
