Aerospace, Defense & Naval

Our work is part of a bigger mission. Military OEM’s and suppliers know they can count on HL to provide parts, components, weldments and assemblies that meet their rigid requirements because their demands match that of the majority of our customers. HL’s attention to detail, newest technologies and commitment to creating value for our customers allow us to provide the close tolerance, defect-free products this industry demands. Our support includes flight simulator structures, Civil Egress Simulation, Maritime Simulation Equipment and more.

Electronic Retail

HL’s expertise in the electronic and automated retail industries stems from our ability to be flexible with small prototype orders, to large production runs. Our technical and special projects teams focus on opportunities to reduce manufacturing time and cost for our customers. Most of our customers require a diverse group of machined, fabricated, welded and assembled parts, while on a tight timeline and budget. Our vast capabilities lend HL to be a competitive supplier for these companies, which appreciate our ability to meet all of their needs, under one roof.

Medical & Scientific Instruments

As the medical and scientific industries continually evolve, HL seized the opportunity to be a key player in our customers’ product evolutions. From tight tolerance, precision optical surgery equipment to blood pathogen assessment products, we are capable of the tightest tolerance and most stringent requirements. Our ability to work alongside our customers suggesting opportunities for improvement and reduction in cost has allowed us to grow our presence in this industry. HL is proud to be the trusted manufacturer for these industries.

Agriculture & Energy

We have manufactured critical components for the energy industry including solar, nuclear, oil and gas and more. An issue with a small part can become a huge problem quickly in this industry, and we make it a habit to be on our toes. The care we take in responding to customer demands means that the capabilities it takes to ensure a continuous supply of products are built into the way we do things. The result? Fast manufacturing, flexible batch sizes and lower overall cost for exceptionally reliable quality.
This is the way we do everything.

Bottling & Capping

When every second of downtime affects your bottom line, reliability and efficiency from your suppliers is essential. Equipment is a large investment and your line’s ability to perform consistently is the key to your success. We are highly competent in providing quick turnaround replacement parts for your machines, high-volume, precision blades, reverse engineering for maintenance on worn parts and more. The parts we manufacture for the bottling and capping industry often require heat treating and plating for longer life, which we offer to our customers.

Heavy Transmission & Suspension Systems

Heavy transmissions and suspension systems count on tight tolerances and precision parts to keep all of their elements running constantly and efficiently. HL’s expertise and partnerships with these industries allow us to manufacture bushings, flanges, shafts, suspension parts and any other close tolerance components to exact specifications. Our robust inventory management system allows us to provide competitive pricing while fulfilling orders through partial shipments to meet our customers’ delivery timelines.
