Ipsen USA, Cherry Valley, Illinois, USA, reports that despite uncertain market conditions presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the company has seen an increase in orders placed during July, building positive momentum for its third quarter.
According to Ipsen, it was awarded five vacuum furnace orders between four customers, each with unique process requirements in the aerospace, defence and commercial heat-treating industries. The product mix varies from MetalMaster® to TurboTreater® to the company’s signature Vacuum Aluminum Brazing furnace.
In addition to the five new orders, Ipsen states that it had shipped nine furnaces in July to customers across six states in the USA, as well as Canada, and the UK. Orders this year have reportedly included a mix of new equipment, aftermarket parts, service and retrofits. Ipsen is hopeful this upward trend will continue through the fourth quarter.
“Ipsen has worked with international operations teams for decades, shipping equipment from the US to countries all over the world,” stated Patrick McKenna, Ipsen USA president and CEO. “With the identification of Ipsen USA as the Vacuum Center of Excellence, we can continue servicing those companies with the level of quality they expect and deserve.”
