History

First incorporated in 1978, P & L started out in a 2,500 square foot building with only 2 high heat austenitizing furnaces and 2 tempering furnaces, used for heating treating H-13 aluminum extrusion dies only. William (Bill) H. Pociask is the founder of P & L Heat Treating and continues to serve P & L and Thermal Process Holdings in many ways. With over 40 years of heat treating expertise, Bill is a pioneer and one of the most respected experts in the machining, tool and die and forging industries. Working closely with all P & L and Thermal Process Holdings customers, Bill ensures they get the highest quality heat treatment services and the most productive at the lowest total cost.

By 1982 additional building space and equipment were added, doubling the company size.

In 2018, P & L Heat Treating was acquired by Thermal Process Holdings.

Today, P & L Heat Treating operates out of a 25,000 square foot building with 16 employees and state of the art furnaces and testing equipment.
