President, VAC AERO International
Message from The President
We have had another successful year at VAC AERO and look forward to sustained growth in the New Year. We have enjoyed strong results in our Heat treating, Coatings and Furnace Manufacturing operations due in large part to the strength of the Aerospace market which is forecast to remain strong for several years thanks to the need to supply new aircraft to both domestic and developing markets.
Developing economies continue to dominate world markets with large volumes of manufacturing work moving off-shore. To position ourselves for future success in the global market, VAC AERO has undertaken business ventures in both Poland and India. VAC AERO Kalisz, located in Poland has been providing heat treating and coating services to the Eastern European aerospace market. In addition to these special processes, our joint venture Hightemp VAC AERO located in Bangalore, India supplies furnace equipment to the Southeast Asian market. We expect strong growth in those regions and are planning future expansion.
The demand for vacuum furnace equipment remains strong in both foreign and domestic markets and is forecast to remain active. VAC AERO is currently building furnaces for delivery in the US, Korea, India and Canada. In an increasingly competitive manufacturing environment VAC AERO have been able to differentiate itself by offering unique engineering solutions to stringent vacuum furnace requirements. Additionally, our experience operating AS9100 and NADCAP approved commercial heat treating facilities allows our engineers to tailor furnace designs to meet real-life production challenges and specifications. This translates into added value for our furnace customers by way of increased durability, efficiency, reliability and uptime.
While striving for continued growth and success in a constantly changing global marketplace, we sincerely value how relationships are helping us to achieve our goals. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being part of our success and I wish you and your family the best for this Holiday Season and New Year.
