Aluminum Heat Treat Facility

AFG is now offering full Heat Treat services to new and existing customers. Currently, the heat treat facility is separate from AFG’s main manufacturing facility but is only minutes away. In 2012, we expect to move this facility to our main plant. The equipment is fully computer controlled and automated and qualifies as one of the most state-of-the-art heat treat systems in the world. The system control was custom-built by company CEO Adam Grizzle. The services offered include solution heat treat, heat age, and check and straighten services for most types of aluminum. The facility is currently fully operational and is certified to NADCAP, Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, Airbus, HondaJet, Goodrich Aerospace, Sikorsky, and Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, and AMS 2750. Different industries require different levels of certifications. Please contact the facility supervisor (Keith Richardson) for more information regarding this service, or you may contact Keith directly at 770.505.8801 X-123 or email . Please check back as more information becomes available.


Facility Expansion
by Stephanie Andersen | Aug 22, 2011

AFG’s new expansion began in December 2008 when we purchased 5 acres of developable land adjacent to our property. The first phase of additions added 23,000 sq.ft. to our existing facility. This effectively tripled our manufacturing area, allowing us to venture into new manufacturing technologies like composite manufacturing. With the first phase we expect to employ an additional 60 personnel.

The project was completed in July 2010. And finally, the satellite has passed over us, so here is a shot of our new facility!
