From Staff And Wire Reports

Stack Heat Treaters, a Portlandbased thermal treatment company, announced Wednesday that it will build the first thermal treatment plant in the Inland Northwest.

The new company, Inland Northwest Metallurgical Services Inc., will open July 1 in the Spokane Business Park. The plant will employ about 10 people, including an on-site metallurgist.

The staff, which will work out of a 10,000-square-foot building, will provide vacuum, endothermic and aluminum heat-treating capabilities for machine shops, aluminum foundries, aerospace manufacturers and fabricators.

“Spokane companies have been sending their products to Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle for the heat-treating process,” said Don Valentine, president of Stack Heat Treaters.

“We feel there is a great opportunity here to service the Inland Northwest,” he said.

Stack Heat Treaters employs 60 people at plants in Portland and Seattle.
