Industries

Aerospace and Defense

We have been manufacturing components for military and commercial aircraft since the early 1960s. Since that time, our company has always maintained the leading standard for quality and has been CNC certified. We continue to grow and evolve with the times, utilizing the highest quality technology possible such as the CATIA software program. Over the years, our work has made several appearances in cinema including Top Gun and Desert Storm

Electronics & Communications

Our experience with electronics and communications goes back to the ’70s when we were primarily crafting fiber optic connectors for microwaves and again for aircraft in the early 2000s. We have also created parts for watches, timing devices on weapons, and camera projectors for in-flight film viewing. These projects provided us with experience in near-micro machining, learning to work with very small tools and close tolerances. Though we continue to look towards the future and evolve with modern technology, our history continues to shape us into the forward-thinking company we are today.

Architectural & Ornamental

Our expertise in this sector includes components made for the famous NYC Matchstick building (432 Park Avenue) and the Planetarium in the Museum of Natural History. We also have experience creating custom parts for ornamental, antique-style elevators for certain hotels as well as specific sleek, modern home additions. Architectural jobs provide a challenging opportunity to employ our creativity and expertise simultaneously. 

Consumer Products

While our experience in consumer products is not vast, we have worked to help craft a few specific high quality products over the past decades such as S/B Imperial Scrade knives and high-end multi-tools. We have also worked within the music industry creating specific small pieces for guitars such as potentiometer sleeves as well as table saw modifications for guitar production. Our experience also includes calculator parts for Texas Instrument as well motorcycle parts, gun tripods, and a component that goes into the Grammy Award trophy!

Medical

We have experience crafting high-quality medical parts such as wrist implants and wheelchair components. We have also assembled nozzles for anesthesia equipment. We stand behind the high quality and proficiency of our medical projects and look forward to expanding our offerings in this realm.

Industrial

Our biggest involvement with the industrial realm is food packaging. Our projects include vacuum-sealed jarred food, where we are responsible for producing the part that creates the cap and injects the rubber sealant inside. This is crucial for keeping the product air-tight and fresh. We also produce the plastic blades used for soft-serve ice cream machines, which must remain in constant motion to keep the ice cream from hardening. Our high quality and craftsmanship continue to serve the food packaging industry well, keeping consumers safe and happy.
