About Us

Why We Love This Stuff

Let’s get real. What we do is amazing. Not just our company, but high-end machine shops in general – anyone who takes a metal strip, coil, casting, or plate and creates something outstanding. That’s authentic. That’s awesome. We’re excited to be part of this industry. Strike that. We are ecstatic about the role we get to play. And we are constantly – obsessively – seeking ways to do it better, and the people who will help us get there. That’s Crystal Engineering.

Every day our engineers are hard at work exploring new applications and adaptations for precision-made products. It’s a remarkable environment for creativity, innovation and advancement.

But don’t take our word for it. Call us. Visit us. Try us on for size. Make us make you a believer.

What Makes Us Tick

We are passionate about people, process, precision, and progress. These are the elements at the heart of our company, and the core of our commitment to customers. That’s why we go to great lengths to hire the best, buy the best, produce the best, and constantly seek out the next employee, practice or tool that will make the great things we do even better.

Everything We Make Has a Story

You could argue that precision stamping large volumes of small metal parts every day isn’t very exciting. But you’d be wrong. Millions of times a day, our machinists and machines turn out precision-made fabrications – everything from stainless steel washers to tantalum (that’s right, tantalum) capacitors – that end up in cars, planes, military vehicles, satellites and defense systems around the world. That’s pretty far from the everyday.
