Keeping Your Programs Secure.
Cybersecurity attacks for the aerospace and defense industries continue to increase in frequency and sophistication.
The Department of Defense recently issued new contract clause, DFARS 252.204–7012, in an effort to safeguard covered defense information and cyber incident reporting.
The DoD, its contractors and subcontractors must provide adequate security to safeguard DoD controlled technical information resident on or transiting through their unclassified information systems.
HL has been selected to partner with the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII) to develop an understanding of costs, capabilities and effectiveness of DoD-required cybersecurity measures for manufacturing operations. Network infrastructure will be analyzed by DoD project contractor and generate suggested changes if any, to achieve compliance with requirements.
HL is proud to have the opportunity to positively impact the manufacturing competitiveness and security of the United States Government. HL is also proud to announce it’s now fully compliant under DFARS 252.204-7012.

The highest standards. The happiest customers.
I just met with Steve Hillard, the CEO of HL Precision. They are a Sheet Metal and Machining Company recommended to us by our Corporate Procurement Team. I have to tell you that I have never been more pleased with a fab house both on their turnaround time on quotes and the quality of their work.
They can do the larger work and all the way down to swiss-type-machining. One more thing… big surprise.. they deliver on time. With your permission I would like to give him your contact information, I think you will find meeting HL beneficial.Purchasing Manager, Military Technologies Industry
