Advanced Precision Machining

Advanced Precision specializes in the manufacturing and assembly of high quality, precision components and complex fabrications. Since 1989, our company has been serving customers in military, aerospace, ocean science, oil and gas as well as industrial markets throughout Canada and the United States.
Advanced Precision is dedicated to maintaining its established position on the forefront of machining technology. The company has successfully achieved this through the acquisition of the latest in 5-axis multi-tasking and speed machining equipment which enables our organization to bypass multiple setups, handling costs and defective parts. The immediate benefit to customers is compressed lead times and a significant reduction in cost.
We are dedicated to integrating lean manufacturing into every process. It is our business to embrace change and fully commit ourselves to successfully taking on the challenges of tomorrow – today.
Our size combined with numerous years of experience allows us to work closely with customers and vendors to provide timely delivery of detailed precision parts while ensuring we meet every client specification.
Advanced Precision is a registered ISO 9001:2000 + AS9100B company. We are also registered to the Controlled Goods and Services (ITAR) Act to produce and transfer defence products through Canada and the United States. A significant percentage of our core business is with American defence OEMs who have selected us as a strategic partner for offset programs related to Canadian Crown projects.
