Accurate Steel Treating began in 1962 as a heat-treating facility with three people specializing in tool steel.

Founded on a strong commitment to quality and customer service, the company grew and prospered to become a premier tool steel processor in Southern California. In 1989, Accurate Steel Treating acquired a new management team and embarked on a carefully planned expansion program. During the next several years, new processes were added to keep pace with growing demand including: high-pressure vacuum heat-treating, precision carburizing, and ion nitriding. In 2012, management decided to enter into the Aerospace market to be better diversified and capitalize on the many opportunities in this sector.

Today, Accurate Steel Treating is leading the way with one of the most advanced heat-treating facilities in the industry. “We have combined our decades of hands-on knowledge with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to provide our customers with a level of quality and service second to none,” says Ron Loynds, owner. This powerful combination has earned Accurate Steel Treating a nationwide customer-base, in addition to our local market in Southern California. “Our competitive advantage is our deep understanding of our customer base and their heat-treating needs shared with our uniquely qualified and experienced management team.” adds Chris Hall, president.

Accurate Steel Treating is AQS AC7004 certified, and accredited by Nadcap for vacuum & atmosphere heat treating, gas carburizing, Ion & gas nitriding, stress relieving, aging, and metallurgical evaluations. Among the many reasons for our success is our workforce of sixty-plus professionals and technicians, some with more than twenty-five years of service, all focused on one goal: to provide you with the highest level of quality and the best service in the business.
