Where Are They Now-Chris Bixler

Chris has spent his entire life in the heat treating industry; almost 13 years at Applied Process in Livonia, Michigan (Applied recently became part of the Aalberts Group of companies), a short stint at Metlab in Wyndmoor, PA (who boasts some of the largest pit carburizing furnaces in North America) and Robert Wooler Company another commercial heat treater in  PA. It would appear that Chris has just left the industry as he is working at a company by the name of Jerith Manufacturing who provides aluminum fencing-perhaps they heat treat in house? The photo below dates back 5 years (Chris is on the left) and was taken at the Applied Process facility in Michigan.
