FOUNDATION OF NITREX
THE PATH OF GROWTH
Nitrex Recognized for Green Initiatives
Nitrex was founded as a private Canadian company in 1984. The company started as a pioneer in computer control-based nitriding and nitrocarburizing with its proprietary technology NITREG®. Over the next two decades, the company grows in the USA and Poland, thriving thanks to its sustained efforts in research and development and bringing new technologies to the heat treating market like the ONC® technology that further enhances the corrosion and wear resistance properties of NITREG® treated steels and of NITREG®-C nitrocarburizing, an environmentally friendly alternative to salt bath nitrocarburizing.
Over the past 37 years, the company’s ability to diversify its product and business portfolios as well as unlocking employee potential has made it one of the best-known players in the heat treatment market.
