September 29, 2000
Bickley Inc. has joined Grupo Nutec, a group of companies supplying solutions for industrial heating applications. According to the company, Bickley’s 42 years of expertise in the high-temperature and high-performance kiln business will fit well with Nutec’s other businesses, including Calortec, which manufactures ceramic fiber under the FIBRATEC name; Nutec, a joint venture with North American for the supply of burners and combustion systems; and Nutec Industrial, which offers furnace and kiln design and fabrication.

Bickley will remain at its headquarters in suburban Philadelphia, Pa. The company expects to benefit from Nutec Industrial’s economic and modern manufacturing capability in Monterrey, Mexico, as well as to gain improved access to Latin American markets.
