“Can you make the part?”

The answer is typically: Yes. Universal’s team consists of 200 employees working in three shifts in our 71,000 square feet of manufacturing space. We work hard to make sure we have the equipment needed to fulfill demand. Our production is governed by quality checks throughout the process.

In 2014, Universal Aerospace also added finishing to our offerings through our subsidiary: Metal Finishing, Inc.
