Airtonics in the News
It takes just the right combination of highly-skilled employees, high-tech equipment and processes, robust software, and in-depth experience to succeed as a contract manufacturer in today’s hyper-competitive global marketplace. But their success is even more impressive when you consider the fact that many contract manufacturers nowadays are taking on the role formerly performed by OEMs–that of manufacturing a precision product from start to finish. One Northern California sheet metal fabrication company, Airtronics Metal Products, Inc., is deftly riding this “wave of the present.” Operating with 104 employees out of San Jose, Calif., Airtronics is the quintessence of the vertically-integrated, 21st Century contract manufacturer–one that handles complete projects in addition to producing precision, fully-finished parts and components.”
Building the cabinets and racks came easy, as this is Airtronics’ core competency. The real challenges were designing and planning the electrical systems to allow powering the trailer from four separate external generators supplying a total of 150 kW, and balancing the airflow through each rack. The project required sophisticated problem solving to develop a bulk charging environment with special cooling and venting requirements, and emergency back-up electrical, lighting and power-distribution systems.

With precision metal fabricator Airtronics, NC2 transforms sheet metal into affordable works of art. To execute their plan, the duo approached several metal fabricators, but only Airtronics, a precision sheet metal manufacturing job shop in San Jose, Calif., could fabricate their vision. “They produce nice, tight, clean designs,” says Naylor. NC2 and the building owners were extremely impressed with the lead time and cost estimate, and immediately moved forward with the unproven plan to fabricate the decorative railing panels from sheet metal. They were delighted when their plans and signature design finally came to fruition precisely executed—and under budget to boot.

San Francisco architects team up with a sheet metal fabricator Airtronics Metal Products to punch, laser and bend their visions into reality. “Some shops just didn’t have the right equipment, for example, a laser bed that could accommodate a five ft by ten ft piece of sheet metal,” noted Naylor, who found that every shop they visited was excited about doing something outside their normal industry. “But Airtronics had everything we needed: the right combination of equipment, enough room, a high level of quality control, and a willingness to work with us on a project that was new to them.”
