The heat treatment firm Bodycote says it will open a new surface technology plant in Houston, Texas.
The new plant, scheduled to open during the third quarter of 2012, will enable Houston's large oil & gas market to access Bodycote's spray services, which prolong the life of components operating in extreme environments.
The new plant complements Bodycote's heat treatment facilities in Texas, and the surface technology facility in neighbouring Arkansas, which provides ceramic treatments.
