Prototek is one of the top companies in the country to offer rapid prototyping of precision sheet metal and CNC machining. This will allow Prototek to become one of the largest quality conscious suppliers of precision sheet metal and CNC machining in the country to emphasize on quick turn around time for their ITAR and non-ITAR customers alike.
“When looking for a good fit with Prototek, hundreds of foreign companies are put through a rigorous process to ensure that quality, pricing, and delivery are to our highest of standards. We have found that by having the parts finished here at our facility by assembling and installing hardware only made in America helps control the quality of our customers’ parts.” Stated Prototek’s production manager, Brian Francoeur.
Some of the developing countries that Prototek has been targeting to find the right quality conscious vendors of quick turn sheet metal and rapid CNC machining are China, Mexico, Malaysia, Peru, Ukraine, and India, as well as a few others. The handful of vendors that complete and pass their testing process must have quality control systems in place starting with the current ISO programs and meet their country’s top quality programs.
Prototek Manufacturing began in 1987 as a family owned and operated business as a supplier of quick turn precision sheet metal and machined products for the prototype markets. Today we are still a family owned and operated business to ensure customers only receive the best sheet metal and machined prototypes and short run production parts. Our quality and turn times continue to be among the best in the industry. Serving industries such as robotics, semi-conductor, telecommunications, military, pharmaceutical, medical, computer technologies and aeronautics, Prototek Manufacturing includes machining, plating, painting, powder coating, silk screening and assembly capabilities all under the same roof to help save our customers time and money on their finished parts requirements.
