Bodycote, a global provider of heat treatment and specialist thermal processing services headquartered in Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK, has officially opened its new heat treatment facility in Prague, Czech Republic. The new heat treatment centre is now fully operational and providing a range of heat treatment services, having been established to support the automotive and general industrial markets in the region. 

Bodycote has operated a heat treatment plant in Prague since the early 1990s, but due to growth and demand, reports that it outgrew its premises. The new plant is said to have been purpose built to replace the original Prague facility, with additional space on-site for anticipated growth.

Speaking at the facility’s opening, Paul Clough, President of Bodycote’s Classical Heat Treatment division for Northern Europe & Asia, stated, “Bodycote is proud to be opening our newest facility in Prague, where we can be close to our customers and grow to meet their future demand.”

Roman Poslusny, Vice President of Operations of Central Eastern Europe for Bodycote’s Classical Heat Treatment division, added, “The Czech Republic is an excellent place for Bodycote to invest in order to support our customers’ supply chains locally. This expansion helps to demonstrate our commitment to our Eastern European customers by providing the best possible service.”
