METAL THAT MATTERS!
THAT'S THE MOTTO OF L-AND-M PRECISION FABRICATION.
WHICH WAS FOUNDED BACK IN 19-91.
THE AIRWAY HEIGHTS COMPANY MANUFACTURES A WIDE VARIETY
MADE IN THE NORTHWEST
L-AND-M PRECISION FABRICATION HAS OPERATED OUT OF
THIS 20-THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT FACILITY IN AIRWAY HEIGHTS
FOR THE LAST 19 YEARS.
AND ON THE SURFACE.
IT SEEMS LIKE MOST OTHER METAL FABRICATORS.
we form and machine metal, composites and plastics.
and we form them into something that becomes a product
that you would recognize.
BUT CO-OWNER AND FOUNDER KEN LOGAN BELIEVES L-AND-M'S
30 EMPLOYEES PAY MORE ATTENTION TO DETAIL.
AND TRULY ENJOY TAKING PRODUCTS FROM CONCEPT.
ALL THE WAY THROUGH PRODUCTION.
we've had customers who come in with just an idea
they have on the back of a napkin and we'll take that
to fruition for them.
and that's really been the fun part of the industry,
and our business in particular, is working with other
people and their dreams.
METAL THAT MATTERS
i always say, 'we don't make coat hangers for k-mart.
and we don't.
we make enclosures that go into icu units.
that go into kidney dialysis machines.
that go into circuit board manufacturing machines.
L-AND-M HAS FOUND ITS NICHE MAKING SMALLER, LIGHTWEIGHT
LIKE ENCLOSURES, PANELS AND CHASSIS.
THAT BIGGER COMPANIES DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH.
this metal enclosure is a good example of what l&m
can do, complete with all the breaks and hardware
but while they specialize in smaller parts, they're
also able to do bigger parts as well.
this is essentially an enclosure for a liquid sautering
PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED HERE ARE USED IN INDUSTRIES
LIKE ELECTRONICS, MEDICAL AND AGRICULTURE.
BUT L-AND-M'S BIGGEST PUSH HAS BEEN IN AEROSPACE.
that's the main focus of our growth in the last several
years is boeing and boeing related products.
and through our involvement in inwac inland northwest
aerospace consortium, we've been able to garner larger
contracts than we would on our own.
FROM THE C-N-C BREAK PRESS WITH MULTIPLE SET-UPS.
TO THE WELDING DEPARTMENT.
TO THE POWDER COATING DEPARTMENT.
EVERYTHING IS DONE UNDER ONE ROOF.
THE PUSH IS ALWAYS FOR ZERO DEFECTS.
AND 100-PERCENT ON TIME.
we have very, very good controls, we have high efficiencies
and we have very good quality and delivery rates.
SINCE THE ECONOMIC DOWNTOWN MORE THAN FIVE YEARS AGO.
L-AND-M HAS COMMITTED ITSELF TO INCREASING ITS EFFICIENCIES
AND UPGRADING ITS EQUIPMENT.
TO ENSURE FUTURE SUCCESS.
we are staged and ready to launch and grow steadily
with no major changes over the next five to ten years.
AND THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD PLACE TO BE.
FOR MADE IN THE NORTHWEST.
I'M DEREK DEIS.
