East Carolina Metal Treating Expanding
In Raleigh, NC, USA we find a good sized commercial heat treat which has been in the news quite a bit recently, mainly because the President, Mr. Jamie Ramm keeps buying new equipment which turns into industry wide press releases. To find out what all the fuss is about we at “The Monty” decided to visit since the last time we were here was roughly 10 years ago. What we found was a 45,000 square foot building with roughly 70 employees and some real nice looking equipment which includes a row of vacuum furnaces, batch IQ furnaces, Nitrex nitriding furnaces and some Induction thrown into the mix.
The company was founded back in 1976 and Jamie has been here for over 30 years. We mention about the company expanding-that is only partly true. The company has a second location, Virginia Metal Treating in Lynchburg, Virginia with 10 employees and this is the location expanding. Land has been purchased and a brand new structure of 20,000 square feet is in the works. Enough of our rambling, we will let these photos tell the story but not before adding that the company had Nadcap, AS 9100 and Appendix B which we learned is a nuclear spec-you learn something every day.
