Paulo has a long history of proven success with thermal processing and heat treatment in automotive, working with leading carmakers, heavy truck manufacturers, and tiered suppliers in North America and beyond.
Proper thermal processing is the key to safety for cars and trucks. The automated precision controls in our system ensure your parts are processed to your exact specifications. We also have safeguards in place to prevent any out of spec part from entering your supply chain, protecting both your customers and your business.
|Lot Traceability||Paulo has the most advanced data collection and automation system of any commercial heat treater. All process and testing data is captured and cataloged electronically in our PICS system, ready for recall within a few clicks. Also, our handling practices prevent mixed parts.|
With more manufacturers adopting just-in-time inventory models, turnaround times for processing are more important than ever. While processing times vary, we schedule strategically to shorten turnaround as much as possible and plan to anticipate rush orders.
|Strict Specifications||Consumers rely on safety system components every time they climb into their vehicles. That’s why we’ve built smart, automatic process controls to ensure your parts meet specifications—and we have the industry’s largest in-house metallurgy team to verify results through testing.|
|Certification & Approval Process||We already hold many certifications and approvals across our plant system and are well-versed in the process of obtaining them. We’ve successfully expedited the PPAP process for several customers to keep their production running, and we can do the same for you.|
