Hestia Heat Treat

About Us

State-of-the-Art Processes

Racine Heat Treating had been offering heat treat services to the Southeast Wisconsin/Northern Illinois area for over 50 years, under a few different owners. The company was purchased by Darius Szczekocki in 2017, and rebranding the company began, along with improvements in company culture, equipment, and facilities. Hestia, Greek goddess of the hearth, seems a fitting name for a heat treating company providing manufacturers with quality product meeting their precise specifications. At Hestia Heat Treat, we safeguard your trust with production & quality assurance staffs dedicated to meeting your standards of excellence. Our goal is your continuing satisfaction.
