Varco Heat Treating Company
Division of Diversified Metallurgical Services, Inc.

Orange County's Largest Heat Treating Company

It can be a simple brake drum for an earth mover, or an intricate exotic metal fastener for the space shuttle. It can be a 4 ton, one-off casting, or thousands of tiny parts. If it has to be heat treated, it has to be right. That's why Varco Heat Treating Company is in business.

90 Years of Quality

Varco, founded in 1908, was the first commercial heat treater in Southern California. Today, as a division of Diversified Metallurgical Services, Inc., Varco is equipped to provide operating temperatures from 2150 degrees to -325 degrees Fahrenheit. Our equipment, operating procedures and inspection procedures have been certified by most aerospace manufacturers and Nadcap.

Laboratory Services

Varco's in-house metallurgical laboratory is equipped to perform exacting analyses including:

  • Microhardness Surveys
  • Case Depth Determinations
  • Metallographic Examinations
  • Failure Analysis

For the past 90 years Varco's motto has been "There is no substitute for Quality." And, while we continue to pursue business competitively, we see no reason to change. There is still no substitute for Quality.
