EAST GRANBY, Conn., February 6, 2023 – American Cladding Technologies, a leading provider of laser metal deposition services for the past decade, has announced it will begin operating as a division of Joining Technologies. Both companies are owned by Joining Industries, Inc.

Greg Miller, President of Joining Technologies, says the decision was made in order to “streamline our operations and deliver better overall service as one company operating under a single management structure.”

This shift in operations is expected to be nearly seamless, as both companies were already sharing certain resources, including sales, marketing and quality engineering.

American Cladding Technologies (ACT) will move its equipment and staff to the Joining Industries Headquarters building at 17 Connecticut South Drive, just a quarter of a mile away from its current location at 15a International Drive. ACT will take over the space currently occupied by JT Automation, another Joining Industries company, which will move to a newly acquired property in Windsor in April 2023.

Although ACT will go forward as a division of Joining Technologies rather than a separate company, they will continue use of the American Cladding Technologies brand and website www.americancladding.com. Forthcoming web updates will establish a clearer connection to Joining Technologies.
