Oerlikon opens technology service center in Canada

Pfäffikon SZ, Switzerland - July 16, 2015 - Oerlikon’s Surface Solutions Segment has opened its first joint technology service center offering both thin-film and thermal spray deposition technologies and services in Guelph, Canada. 

From the new and larger facility, the business is able to serve its customers with the full portfolio of its two brands: Oerlikon Balzers and Oerlikon Metco. The service center will provide thin-film coating (PVD) including nitriding and regrinding services – a complete solution for tool reconditioning. And, it will offer the complete portfolio of thermal spray services. 

“Since the acquisition of Metco around one year ago, the integration has progressed very well and the Surface Solutions Segment has clearly reinforced its position as a technology leader in its market. The opening of the first joint Surface Solutions Service Center is an important milestone in the implementation of the Segment’s strategy to offer customers the complete array of surface solutions technologies and services. Moreover, it confirms the underlying rationale and the potential and value that our Surface Solutions Segment can bring to customers,” says Oerlikon CEO, Dr. Brice Koch.
