Solar Atmospheres acquires Vac-Met

Vac-Met Inc., with locations in Warren and Fraser, Michigan, has been acquired by Solar Atmospheres Inc. Having built a strong heat-treating presence in the Midwest during the last 41 years, the addition of Vac-Met within the Solar Family of companies will increase the total commercial vacuum heat treating and brazing facilities to five plants across the USA.

Vac-Met’s goals of providing state-of-the-art commercial heat treating, primarily in a vacuum environment, aligns perfectly with Solar’s mission. Joseph White will continue to head the day-to-day operations of Vac-Met’s nine vacuum furnaces, while leading a team he’s built throughout the years. White will report to Robert Hill, president of Solar Atmospheres of Western PA.
