Custom Metal Fabrication – Defense

Here at Vista Industrial Products, Inc. we fabricate parts for numerous industries that require precision parts. One industry that we do very well with is the defense industry. San Diego County is a known for its dominate defense and military industry, which is how VIP began doing business for the defense and military due to their high demand of quality parts. To expand our services to more defense companies, we have obtained our ISO 9001:2008 and ITAR certifications.




Our custom metal fabrication services expand to precision sheet metal fabrication, CNC machining, and precision welding fabrication. In addition, we have the skilled staff to handle very complex mechanical assemblies. In-house, we also have the capabilities to wet paint, powder coat, and chemical film in our 58,000 square foot paint shop. Our value-added engineering makes VIP a perfect destination for defense companies who require a one-stop shop for their custom metal fabrication, metal finishing, and mechanical assembly.

For the defense industry, some of the types of custom products that VIP fabricates for the defense industry include:

  • custom metal enclosures
  • custom metal chassis
  • custom metal brackets
  • custom metal machined components
  • custom metal weldments
  • and more!

We work with many prime defense contractors who rigorous requirements in fabricating prototypes, production quantities, and mass production. Here at Vista Industrial we provide prototypes within our standard lead time of 3 to 4 weeks. Although we are not a rapid prototype house, we work well with the defense industry since they demand high quality prototypes, which correlates to the longer lead time. Our facility has the capacity and a wide range of equipment to handle any defense job large or small.

When VIP receives and order that is ITAR, we have our procedures in place, including our ISO quality standards, to ensure your parts are made to your exact specifications, all the required certifications are included, and are handled with the highest level of security. Many orders have a DO Rating or DPAS Rating, which we take into consideration before accepting any order to ensure we can meet the specified delivery dates.

If you are a defense contractor looking for a manufacturing facility that can handle small to large runs, are ITAR Registered, ISO certified, provide on-time deliveries, and the highest level of metal fabrication quality, please contact us today! We understand there may be a non-disclosure agreement, supplier quality questionnaires, passwords to drawings, and flow down requirements, which we are extremely familiar with. Contact us today!
