From one large-capacity furnace and crane
In 1989, Aberfoyle Metal Treaters broke ground to build the first part of what is now an expanded 5-acre facility. Adding one furnace after another, Aberfoyle grew to accommodate a diverse range of client needs and components.
The real history of Aberfoyle did not start there, however. Harry Hall, Aberfoyle's founder, had been involved in heat treating of materials for about 15 years prior to the founding of Aberfoyle Metal Treaters Ltd. It was during those years that he gained the valuable hands-on experience and knowledge to recognize there was a definitive need in the marketplace for a better commercials heat treat facility; hence Aberfoyle Metal Treaters was created.
By 1999, it became apparent that customers had requirements for additional processing needs beyond heat treating, so a 15,000 square foot blasting and coating facility was added. With two paint booths and two blast units, Aberfoyle was able to facilitate a wide range of secondary operations on components from diverse industries.
Enthusiastic attention to the needs of our customers has been one of the key factors in our rapid growth rate. We have added additional equipment and facilities to accommodate the growing requirements of our clients while venturing into uncharted areas to provide unique and custom heat treating and blast and coat solutions. As we move forward, the need for the constant innovation of our processes and services is the key to our continued success.
