Commercial Heat Treating
Surface® is proud to design and manufacture equipment that heat treaters have trusted for generations. Many commercial heat treaters have built their business on our furnaces because they produce consistent, reliable results. Commercial heat treaters provide necessary heat treating, metallurgical and other value-added services to captive equipment manufacturers, service industries, universities, labs, and others. Generally, the customer base of commercial heat treaters doesn’t have the staff, the expertise, the equipment, the floor space, the infrastructure or the interest to do heat treating. In today’s business model, each company is challenged with finding their core competencies and likewise to consider outsourcing that which falls outside of these. The technical knowledge, mechanical expertise, metallurgical expertise and investment in state of the art equipment are the most cited reasons for outsourcing. Likewise, there are the inherent benefits of going to the experts who do this every day, who know what to do, who do it with repeatable quality and who do it in a timely fashion.
