Because of our certified processing capabilities some of our customers ask FCP to perform sub-contract work to support their own manufacturing operations. (Please see the downloadable .pdf capability summary sheets on our Welding, Brazing, Filter Media Pleating, and Laser Cutting services.)
Some of the customers that use FCP for one or more of these special process services also find it convenient to use us for related manufacturing services. These related services include CNC Machining, Fabrication, Assembly & Testing, Inspection, and Packaging / Shipping.
FCP has a full service CNC machining facility with multi axis lathe and milling capacity. We have a long history of success in fabricating precise parts for the demanding needs of aerospace and defense customers. You can count on our familiarity with specialty metals - Inconel, Magnesium, Copper alloys and all types of stainless steel are standard fare for us! Whether you need a few pieces or a few thousand, we can help! FCP also maintains a complete manual machining service for those situations where CNC is not the answer.
