Making your ideas a reality
Located just south of Portland, Oregon we specialize in OEM parts & development, CNC milling, and turning. In house, we operate high-end CNC equipment, the latest ERP, and CAD/CAM software, so our customers have the benefits of large business tools with the responsiveness and direct communication only a local small business can give.
Our goal is to partner and grow with our clients, continuously providing a high level of service and flexibility that is hard to find in manufacturing today. We make people’s ideas a reality, and we love doing it.
