Solar Atmospheres extends its vacuum furnace estate
Thursday, 12 January 2023
Investing over $5 million dollars in a fifth vacuum heat treating facility in the US gives Solar Atmospheres of Michigan the space for further growth. Nine furnaces will relocate, and be joined by two new ones.

Solar Atmospheres of Michigan has purchased 18,000 square feet of plant space on more than four acres in Chesterfield, Michigan. The new building is 20 miles Northeast of the two existing facilities which are located in Warren and Fraser, Michigan.

Bob Hill, President of Solar Atmospheres of Michigan Inc says, “We are working feverishly in 2023 to prepare and equip this new facility to make it our fifth state of the art vacuum heat treating and brazing facility in the United States. Once all of the electrical, water cooling and specialty gas utilities are installed, we will strategically relocate the nine existing vacuum furnaces to their new home. Additionally, two new vacuum furnaces were purchased from Solar Manufacturing. This investment of over $5 million dollars gives Solar Atmospheres of Michigan the space to locate our valuable employees and equipment under one roof while continuing to grow the Michigan vacuum thermal processing needs.”
