Your project is only as good as the people and equipment handling it. At CEM, our manufacturing capabilities are tough to beat since we can do what others cannot.

We perform machining, broaching, hobbing/splining, welding, assembly, kitting and stocking programs with our in house departments. We use our network of qualified “team” associates for heat treat, grinding, coating, flame/plasma/laser, casting, forging and forming projects. Deploying a JIT model, we offer complex prototype through high-volume production capabilities with multi-site, multi-shift operations.

Services include horizontal and vertical mill and lathe machining, manual machining, drive shaft manufacturing, quality assurance, broaching, hobbing, grinding, welding, painting, assembly, kitting, stocking, packaging, and shipping.

We also offer value-added capabilities in CAD/CAM design engineering, process evaluation, fabrication, and finishing services.

The primary materials we work with are mild steel, alloy steel, stainless, aluminum, brass/bronze, castings, forging, and plastics.
