Solar Atmospheres acquires Vac-Met

Heat treatment specialist Solar Atmospheres has acquired Vac-Met Inc, based in the US.

Vac-Met, which provides commercial heat treating, runs nine vacuum furnaces and has been in operation for 41 years, Solar said.

The acquisition will reportedly increase the company’s commercial vacuum heat treating and brazing facilities to five plants across the country.

“We look forward to continuing to provide unparalleled vacuum thermal processing services to Vac-Met’s valued customers while expanding Solar’s footprint,” said Robert Hill, president of Solar Atmospheres.
