Aalberts N.V. Acquires Premier Thermal

In July, we announced that Aalberts N.V., a Dutch manufacturer and one of the largest heat treaters in the world, reached an agreement to acquire Premier Thermal. I am pleased to announce that the deal closed this morning and we are now officially a part of the Aalberts family. We are excited about what the future holds for Premier Thermal as an Aalberts company; Aalberts’ pragmatic culture, significant technical resources, and outstanding teams around the globe will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business. It’s hard to imagine a better fit for Premier Thermal; a guiding principle at Aalberts is ‘winning with people’ … I couldn’t agree more.

Premier Thermal Participates in Wadsworth Police Department’s Safety Forces Camp

On June 17th Kathy Holtsclaw, Administrative Assistant, and Vidya Ramaswamy, wife of Regional Manager Swami Ramaswamy, participated in the Wadsworth Police Department’s ‘Safety Forces Camp’. 80 students attended the camp this year and the activity was creating ‘noodle people’. Premier Thermal-Wadsworth plant donated the supplies for the activity, helped the students with their projects, and presented the department with a check to help support the program.

Premier Thermal’s Wadsworth, OH plant has been involved with this program for 19 years. We are looking forward to participating again next year.
