We provide light mechanical assembly, both in-house and sub-contracted. Because of the range of possible applications, we advise you to speak with a sales account manager about your exact needs.

Welding / Soldering / Brazing

Metal joinery is accomplished by welding, soldering or brazing. We only outsource these services on select projects. Contact us for more details.
