Since the opening of the 6500 square foot production-, laboratory- and test center in Hillerød, Denmark, in 2013, Expanite has been experiencing rapid growth in the European markets.

During 2015, the company has seen a significant number of new customers in the USA and Canada, and it has therefore been natural to establish a subsidiary – Expanite Inc. – and at the same time open a new treatment center in Ohio.

Expanite can now offer its North American customers the same superior gaseous surface hardening treatment options as in Europe.

Customers can choose to have their material processed in our facilities in Ohio on a day-to-day basis or opt for a fully automatic solution installed directly in their production line thereby eliminating the cost, logistics and risks involved in shipping the parts for hardening.

Expanite is also expanding its presence in North America by welcoming Christian Dalton as new North American Sales Manager. Christian Dalton has a Ph.D. in Material Science and Engineering from Case Western Reserve University.

With the addition of Christian Dalton, the opening of Expanite Inc and the new treatment center, the company is ready for the continued expansion of the Expanite’s processes as the leading techniques for hardening of stainless steel.
