Whether you need just one prototype or hundreds, you can count on the experts at United Gear & Assembly to provide them promptly and efficiently.
The materials we typically work with include alloy steels, carbon steels, aluminum, cast iron, and powdered metals, but the true difference falls into our inspection criteria.

Additionally, United Gear & Assembly embraces high-quality manufacturing practices across our entire operation, meeting standards for ISO, CQI-9, and IATF certification.
