Rex Heat Treat began in a two car garage in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. With the country entering World War II, the business grew rapidly due to the high demand of heat treating services for aircraft, guns, and various hand tools. After the war, J. Walter Rex and his partner Elmer Erb parted ways and the company became the J.W. Rex Company. In addition to the needs of peacetime products, there was a growing need for advanced military projectiles. J. W. Rex Company became recognized as a major resource for heat treating and, eventually, manufacturing of military ordnance shells for the Army and Navy.

With over 30 services ranging from austempering and martempering to vacuum heat treat and cold straightening services, Rex Heat Treat has the breadth of expertise to bring new ideas to the table, and the assurance of quality, consistent work. Serving a range of industries from aerospace and automotive to construction and defense, Rex Heat Treat can bring fresh service options garnered from extensive experience.
