About Us

Applied Process has been a technology leader in the heat treating industry since 1978. AP and its affiliated companies use properly applied Austempering technologies to solve tough engineering problems. AP also continues to work on the development of ever more efficient Austempering systems. This experience and capability are available to you today from three plants across the country.


While many companies talk about quality, we have quietly designed it into our equipment and processes. Our experience shows that quality does not cost, it pays. Nor can quality be “inspected” into the finished product. It must be woven into the organizational fabric.

Our goal is to process zero defective parts. Each and every individual in our company realizes that even one substandard part or process threatens our customers and our position in the market. To that end, we will continually refine and improve our processes, educate our employees, and update our facilities to assure our customers of:

  • The Highest Quality Services Available
  • On Time
  • At Competitive Prices
