Led by brothers Joe (shown below left) and Jim Bettinardi, president and CEO, respectively, the 140-person shop has seven machining areas and 70,000 square feet of manufacturing space. It also actively collaborates with customers to improve part performance, manufacturability and cost.

These include tumble and manual deburr; bead/abrasive blasting; bore finishing and specialty surface conditioning; nitric and citric passivation; ultrasonic cleaning; laser and epoxy- ink marking; surface decontamination; and part protective packaging and bar-code labeling.
