CNC and Manual Precision Machining

Since 1923, we have seen, machined and produced components of all kinds. We have produced various parts from different materials using our precision CNC and manual machining services. These materials include (but are not limited to) aluminum, brass, bronze, stainless, carbon steel, tool steel, plastics & rubber in bar stock or casting form. We can source material or you can supply.

Although we offer a wide range of services we realize we cannot be specialists in all of them so we focus on what we do best and subcontract the rest. We work with top-notch subcontractors so you can trust that we have a dependable source if your parts require heat treating, painting, plating or any other service we do not provide in-house.
