Advancing materials technology since 2000

Our story began back in 2000, with nothing more than an ingenious method for coating light alloys. Since then, the company has grown exponentially. We now deploy industrialised coatings worldwide, bespoke to each and every application.

2000

Our story begins

Founded in 2000, Keronite launched with a simple mission: advance materials science through Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation.

2004

PEO goes international

After receiving a surge in international interest, Keronite formed a North American subsidiary. Keronite Inc. was created to cater to the growing demand from the U.S., and the aerospace and automotive industries in particular.

2007

The world's first purpose-built PEO facility

Three years after entering the U.S., Keronite Inc. moved into a purpose-built PEO facility in Greenwood, Indiana. The new location massively increased production capacity and the efficiency of PEO.

2007

Azini majority shareholding

Azini Capital Partners LLP acquired Keronite in 2007. Azini are a specialist investor in high-growth technology companies.

A new headquarters in the UK's technology hub

2012 saw the company relocate its headquarters. Haverhill, the destination, has strong links to Cambridge, the UK’s technology hub.

The facility further increased production capacity and expanded our R&D capabilities. It also enabled the company to acquire top PhD talent from Cambridge University.

Autonomous coatings

In 2014, Keronite opened it’s first automated PEO production line in the UK. Created for high-volume processing, the automated process enhanced Keronite’s global competitiveness.

2016

AS9100 certification

Keronite earned AS9100 certification for both PEO production facilities in 2016.

The certification recognises Keronite’s quality management systems in design, development, production, installation and servicing PEO coatings.

2018

PEO at scale

Keronite invested over £1m in it’s Greenwood facilities to treble production capacity.

The investment came at a perfect time. Keronite secured multiple long-term deals with high-volume aerospace and semiconductor businesses in 2018.

Innovating for more

2018 will mark the opening of our new PEO-dedicated technology centre in the UK.

The new facility will greatly increase Keronite’s ability for new coating developments, catering for growing demand in bespoke solutions.

2019

The next step for PEO scalability

In 2019, Keronite is targeting Nadcap approval. With preliminary work already underway, this approval will complete Keronite’s journey as a volume provider of advanced surface treatments.
