Big is the operative word right now at Applied Process. Big changes. Big plans. Big opportunities………in fact, MONSTER opportunities.
At AP we have increased our capacity by 40% in the last two years and, by golly, we filled it. Thanks to our customers for their business and, at times, for their patience while we worked through BIG backlogs. We are hitting stride now and helping our (very busy) customers to thrive . Our foundry customers know that they make higher margins on Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) than they do on regular ductile iron so they are happy to work with us to sell ADI conversions. What’s not to like about replacing an imported welded-steel forging with a domestic ADI casting? We think that’s a BIG win.
Speaking of BIG, our Monster Parts™ division is on track to be commissioned in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA within a few weeks. It’s BIG news. It’s a BIG furnace and we’re looking for BIG opportunities for it. How much fun is a furnace with a 400,000lb nitrate/nitrite salt quench? Big fun. After all, at Applied Process we are passionate people providing innovative Austempering solutions. With our new tool we’re talkin’ 10 tons BIG.
AP is working with Joyworks Studio on a developmental project that could have a BIG impact (pun intended) on its market. When there’s a commercial problem to be solved the AP team sees that as a BIG opportunity. We don’t just talk about ‘em. We solve ‘em. That’s what makes us a BIG player in the world of Austempering. Just keep looking for BIG things from the AP team……the next one is, literally, right around the corner.
