Bodycote, the world’s largest provider of heat treatment and specialist thermal processing services, is pleased to announce the opening of a new facility in the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), Rotherham, Yorkshire, to support the aerospace and power generation markets in the UK and Europe.
Simon Blantern, Vice President of Sales Europe for Bodycote’s Aerospace, Defence & Energy heat treatment division, added:
“This investment demonstrates Bodycote’s continuing commitment to align resources to serve both the aerospace and power generation markets.”
The new facility, fully operational in 2018, will offer a number of heat treatment processes. Additionally, major OEM approvals will be secured along with Nadcap accreditation.
David Travis, Director of Business Space at Harworth Group plc, commented:
“We’re delighted to welcome Bodycote as another blue-chip occupier onto the AMP. They were exactly the type of occupier we had in mind when we speculatively developed our R-evolution commercial units and they join McLaren Automotive, British Steel and Spendor Audio in recently moving their operations to the site. Demand for new commercial space remains very strong at the AMP and with our latest speculative development of new units due to complete in September, the future of the AMP looks very bright indeed.”
