Ideation

We provide metal working expertise to all our customers. Whether it's helping you choose the right metal, designing functional hardware for your project, or creating the beautiful custom finish you've envisioned.

Drafting

We work with our customers on an ongoing basis: At the beginning when you need material input and cost consulting for your final design. In the middle, as we prototype and work out important details. And during project completion, when we ship and deliver the final pieces.

Sample-Making

We are able to create finish samples, models, and prototypes for all our work.

Tooling

We source, build, or provide all tooling for manufacturing.
