The Monty’s 50 Largest North American Commercial Heat Treats 2021 – #50 Crio

Since 1999 “The Monty” has been publishing annually a list of the largest commercial heat treaters in North America based upon annual sales, our 2021 list can be found at This year readers will see we became much more ambitious and expanded the list to the 50 largest. In our 50th spot we have Commercial heat treater Crio.

Commercial heat treater Crio is the third commercial heat treater in Mexico to make our list. The company founded their first location in Queretaro, Mexico in 2004 and since that time it has never looked back. CRIO now has 3 locations in Mexico which feature batch IQ furnaces, car bottoms, rotary hearth furnaces and press quenching systems. While the company does do a reasonable amount of aerospace work the backbone of the company is automotive work which means that the company achieved CQI-9 certification a number of years back.
