It really is STEAM – where Science, Technology, Engineering, Artistry and Mathematics all come together!
This particular plant started as a family operation in 1956 and still maintains that family and maker feel, although we are growing at 20% per year. Since 1956, we were quietly honing our craft until aviation and technology caught up.
Now, we find ourselves at the intersection of SpaceX commute rockets and our ability to work with super alloys to create incredibly thin walled, complex small parts for rocket and jet propulsion. For the whole story, you'll want to come in for a tour.
We are located at 414 Hester Street, San Leandro, CA.
