USA Furnace Builder Reports Strong Sales
“AFC-HOLCROFT August 4, 2022; On our floor now are a MBA mesh belt austemper line for austempering stamped metal components, two new UBQ line with ancillaries – one for an automotive supplier and another for a commercial heat treater; two standalone UBQ’s – one for a commercial heat treater who will integrate the furnace into their existing AFC-Holcroft installations and one for a supplier of forged components. We have entered the EV market by supplying an installation for a first-time customer in this important technology. Several EZT Series Endo Gas Generators are also underway for specific customers as well as our ‘Built for Stock’ equipment supply. Furnace rebuild and refurbishment projects round out the available floorspace.
Most equipment will be delivered by the end of the year, making way for latest incoming orders such as a complete new UBQA line, which was recently announced. Tracy Dougherty, Vice President of Sales, commented, “While inflation and consumer confidence are a concern for all of us, our order and quote backlogs remain strong – keeping us optimistic that sales bookings will continue on the current path well into 2023.”
