Capability: We utilise some of the most advanced machining tools in the world. With 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space, we provide industry leading turnaround time, shaving weeks off the production timeline.





The way we run our manufacturing saves you money and time, while providing quality products. When you choose to work with us, you know you are getting the best: a state-of-the-art, high-tech machining facility and a high efficiency, versatile foundry. In addition, we have Non-destructive Testing (NDT) and NIST traceable calibrated dimensional inspection. Efficiencies allow us to compete against low-price providers, while delivering a more dependable level of quality in a shorter lead time.





The quality products you appreciate all start here. No matter if the part is a 4-inch bushing or an enormous 20,000 pound custom bushing, it all starts with a drawing and plan. Our engineers are here to assist in the development phase of an order or even to help qualify a quote, and they’re the best in the business. Often we create an alternative design to the original specifications, in order to improve performance. Our designs incorporate features and a level of quality that meets or sometimes even exceeds that of the OEM.



Quality control


We make sure the product you receive meets our high standards. Every part manufactured in our facility is inspected and certified to match the exact specifications of the job. We use modern inspection tools, including the CMM (Coordinate-measuring Machine), which is a powerful inspection tool the size of a room that provides very accurate and detailed results.


Quality assurance


When your processes are aligned, you receive high quality and dependable results. Our quality assurance team meets weekly to review any problems or potential problems in our workflow so they can be addressed and perfected. Our ISO9001 program is managed here along with our traceability and record retention; our procedures allow us to trace any part that we produce (even years later). We can pull the work order, the date the part was poured, review the production log and confirm any possible detail that might be needed.
