Thermal Modification Technologies, Inc. is a family-owned business that opened its Tualatin, Oregon facility in early 2013, but for decades we were known as Beaver Heat Treating Corporation, which was founded in 1955.
The name and location change weren't by choice; an eminent domain case was the driver. Even though we never would have volunteered for such a change, we're grateful for the opportunity to continue serving the the heat treat needs of the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
We exist to strengthen products, people, and partnerships.
As heat treaters, we don't make parts; we make our customers' parts stronger. That is a great metaphor for what we aim to do for our people who, as we say around the shop, "really make the magic happen." Similarly we seek strong relationships with our customers, our vendors, and our community at large.
We believe that values have consequences, that is, they show up day in and day out. Here's what we value, and therefore, how we act:
Character: do the right thing
Teamwork: help others
Excellence: relentlessly pursue in-spec, on-time
