NaiMor Has EXPANDED OUR AEROSpace PRESENCE!

   NaiMor has expanded our presence within the aerospace market thanks to a certain really cool space company!!! We thought we would take this opportunity to share the capabilities of the different machines used to fabricate parts for this top secret super awesome company. At the end of the capability charts we have also included photos of parts fabricated using these different machines. 

   With our expansion into the aerospace market, you can trust that we have the capabilities to fabricate the parts you need with the tight tolerances you require.

   And since NaiMor is a Seattle area, American owned and operated company, you can rest easy knowing that there will be none of the now typical fabricating and shipping delays that come with using offshore fabrication companies!

   Check us out for any of your #MetalFabrication needs, we deliver to the Greater Puget Sound area and ship nationally!

LEARN WHAT NAIMOR CAN BUILD FOR YOU

Listed below are the many different metal fabrication capabilities used in this space endeavor. Followed by photos.
