Our customers include machinists, fabricators, foundries, stampers, cutters, distributors, and others.
AHT consists of the merged operation of two companies: Industrial Metal Treating and Baltimore Heat Treat. Industrial Metal Treating commenced heat treating operations in West Chester, Pennsylvania in 1964, and relocated in 1984 to the current AHT facility on the Riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware. Baltimore Heat Treat operated in Brooklyn Park, Maryland from 1965 to 2013, at which time its operations were merged into our Wilmington facility. The combination gives AHT the critical mass and flexibility to compete effectively in today’s complex manufacturing environment.
Our 35,000 square-foot facility was built about 1912 as the iron foundry for the Pusey & Jones shipyard. The 330-ft long, 45-ft high structure with powerful overhead cranes once permitted the placement of large cast parts directly onto ships on the river now nicely facilitates the movement of heat treating work among our 25+ furnaces, as well as our blasting rooms and ancillary equipment.
