Hestia Heat Treat, Wisconsin, USA Update

 Over the course of the past couple of years we have reported on the progress of commecial heat treater “Hestia” in Racine, Wisconsin, USA. Their most recent developments included adding several used batch IQ furnaces, the photo attached shows that installation of the furnaces is almost complete.

“JANUARY 2023; In Racine, Wisconsin we find commercial heat treater Hestia Heat Treat (formerly called Racine Heat Treating), this is how the company describes themselves; “Racine Heat Treating had been offering heat treat services to the Southeast Wisconsin/Northern Illinois area for over 50 years, under a few different owners. The company was purchased by Darius Szczekocki in 2017, and rebranding the company began, along with improvements in company culture, equipment, and facilities. Hestia, Greek goddess of the hearth, seems a fitting name for a heat treating company providing manufacturers with quality product meeting their precise specifications. https://hestiaheattreat.com/#overview .”

Under owner Darius Szczekocki the company has grown substantially since he acquired it in 2017. Our understanding is that in 2023 the firm will be bringing on line 3 batch IQ furnaces each with working dimensions of 36″ X 48″ X 36″ and a weight capacity of 3500 pounds. The AFC-Holcroft built furnaces were originally bought by oil field company Haliburton in Texas, but became redundant a year ago when Haliburton made some changes.”
