As a pioneer in Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) services for aerospace, space, defense, and medical industries—we are excited to announce the recent expansion of our operations through the acquisition of Stack HIP. This significant development marks the addition of a new facility in Albany, Oregon, enhancing Kittyhawk’s capacity and technological capabilities while operating the largest high-pressure HIP vessels in North America.

The new Albany facility enables the processing of large and complex metal parts—up to 63” in diameter—which are crucial for a variety of mission-critical applications. As Kittyhawk integrates this new facility, we look forward to leveraging these capabilities to continue meeting the unique demands of our diverse customer base, ensuring high-quality and comprehensive Hot Isostatic Pressing solutions with the fastest turnaround time in the industry.

Brandon Creason, President of Kittyhawk, shared his enthusiasm about the acquisition: “We’re excited to welcome Stack HIP customers, employees, and suppliers into the Kittyhawk family. We commit every day to providing the best service and quality to our customers, and we’re thrilled to now do that with the added capabilities and dedicated employees of Stack HIP.”

Brice Winney, the General Manager of the new Albany facility, expressed his sentiments about joining the Kittyhawk team. “Excited to be joining a world-class team that has been a HIP services provider for over 40 years,” said Winney. “Looking forward to the growth of the company and the Albany facility. We have a fantastic West Coast footprint with the ability to service customers across the USA and internationally as well.”

As Kittyhawk continues to integrate the new Albany operations, our focus remains on leveraging our combined strengths to provide unparalleled service and innovation in the Hot Isostatic Pressing process. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to support our customers’ growth and invest in our capacity to meet the complex demands of evolving manufacturing needs.
