50 Years of Experience.

Our Story. Our Family. Our Business.

After serving in the United States Army, founder Richard Nix established a small machining company in southern California in hopes of being able to continue serving the defense and aerospace industries by manufacturing the highest quality machined parts. His plan was successful, and the business grew rapidly.  In 1977 Richard decided to move the business to a different location, and found home in rural southwestern Oregon.  Although operating a business in a new state would be difficult, he knew that Oregon fit the lifestyle he dreamt for his family, and found the move worth it.

The company was solidly focused on aerospace and defense customers for many years, but the economic impact caused by the 9/11 attacks took the company to its knees.   Like many experienced, rebuilding after 9/11 was extremely difficult.  Richard's oldest son, Brian, stood alongside his dad and helped in diversifying the customer base.  Those efforts paid off, and Nix came back bigger and stronger than ever before.

Today, with the fourth generation implementing world class technology, we now work with some of the world's largest companies.  And while our business has certainly evolved over the last 50 years, our core values have remained the same: producing complex precision machined parts so our customers can focus on running their business, taking the worry out of where and how they are going to source their critical precision metal parts.
