From the Archives

After exactly 50 years in business WG Montgomery Ltd., (“The Monty”) has built up quite an archive of heat treating photos which we like to share on an occasional basis. Here are a few from 15 years ago.

ALD South Carolina, USA. It is now almost exactly 10 years since ALD Thermal Treatment closed their facility in Blythewood, SC. The plant was built to service a nearby Bosch facility and as demand changed the plant was not longer needed. In this photo we see Robert Peters on the left (now a consultant), Tony Wu (now with Bodycote, China) in the middle and Gord Montgomery on the right.

Furnaces North America, Nashville, TN, USA. The first show Furnaces North America (FNA) had in Nashville was back in 2004. In this picture we see Gord and Dale Montgomery and Paul Armitage of Service Heat Treat in Milwaukee, USA on the right.

Gord Montgomery and Lisa Hill. Lisa has to have been our all time favorite spare parts person when she worked at furnace builder Ipsen. After Ipsen Lisa worked at the Bodycote, Melrose Park facility until a few years ago at which point she left the industry and we lost track of her.

The “Heat Treat Doctor” himself. Dan Herring, one of the best known heat treat consultants in North America along with his beautiful wife at FNA in Nashville, in 2004.
