We manufacture crates to nearly any specifications to meet your exact needs.

Our 40 years of experience - along with our in-house engineer - have refined our craft and the expertise to create innovative solutions to even the most complex crating conundrums and regulations.
We manufacture custom crates, cases and containers for much of the Los Angeles area’s Aerospace industry. We supply a range of different aerospace crating products: large airplane skins, aerospace structures, commercial aircraft interiors, wing and tail assembly parts, pylons and rudders, spars, tooling, engines, long support beams, and sensitive space technologies (solar panels, satellite batteries, electronic equipment, and other flight hardware). Because of the intricacies of aerospace manufacturers’ parts, we build per customer drawings and packaging specifications. We're highly familiar with the crating requirements for Boeing, Northrop, Triumph, Raytheon, Lockheed, Spectrolab and many other prominent aerospace manufacturers.

Fine Art, Paintings and Antiques
Private collectors and art dealers alike entrust us to package their one of a kind paintings, sculptures, bronzes and antiques. We pack to ensure that neither shipping nor storage damages the works of art, even if unopened for years or must travel overseas. We take great care to ensure the value of any art, sculpture or antique (be it furniture, dolls, lamps, etc.) remains intact and retains its value. We put the item’s security at the forefront and consider how to avoid possible discoloration or damage to delicate parts when packing them.
