Experience that delivers
A problem-solver’s paradise
Update: Now located in Lynnwood, WA!
Previously located in Kent, WA, Alpha Precision was Lafarge & Egge’s most recent acquisition (2015). A sophisticated build-to-print precision machining operation, L&E is known for machining complicated components and solving critical customer manufacturing problems.
Lafarge’s new machining operation works with a variety of materials, including aluminum, titanium, specialty steels, high-temp nickel alloys, plastics, and copper. Their aptitude for handling an array of materials is bolstered by the broad range of part sizes supported by the facility. L&E’s machinists manufacture dime-size parts as well as those over 80 inches long (sometimes weighing over 2,500 pounds).
In business for almost 30 years, L&E’s prowess and craftsmanship is evidenced by the diverse assortment of components they have manufactured for a range of uses. This accredited AS9100/ISO9001 facility specializes in CNC machining and assembly of complex, close tolerance parts. It’s consistent delivery of high quality parts has made L&E a component supplier for demanding projects, including the Boeing 777, 737, and the International Space Station.
In addition to their precision machining services, our machining team, along with our tubing and welding divisions, is equipped to handle fully integrated projects for customers from a number of industries, including communications, aerospace, submarine, space, automotive and defense.
Continual Improvement, Quality Service
As a full service facility, our machining division’s absolute commitment to continual improvement is paramount. Working with customers on initial designs and prototype development all the way through to the finished product, L&E’s aim is to meet all levels of customer specifications and satisfaction while evolving to meet their ongoing needs. Their highly collaborative and responsive customer service style ensures that their customers receive the information and products they need quickly and with increasing efficiency.
