Sawyer’s Machine Shop

Sawyer Fabrication by the Numbers: A Look at the Size & Scope of Our Precision Machine Shop

A Rundown of Our Cutting-Edge Fabrication Facility & Capabilities

If you work in the modern manufacturing industry, you’ll probably agree that pictures don’t do justice to the sheer size, scope, and tech that goes into production.

A few of the conventional machines in the Sawyer machine shop.

That’s especially true with the kind of precision machining that Sawyer Fabrication specializes in. Our machine shop specializes in custom short-run machining, simple machined parts, and complex assemblies. The machine shop contains conventional manual machines and modern CNC machines, all ran by experienced machinists. Our large-scale machine shop is capable of exceptional machining with quick turn around times. You really need to see it to appreciate the cleanliness and scale of the shop.

Nevertheless, we thought we’d try to paint a picture of the size, scope, and precision that we’re working with here at Sawyer Fabrication.
