A history of adding value

HR_Frencken_1230The company started manufacturing and supplying high-end, precision machined parts for mechanical assemblies in 1947, when the Frencken brothers founded the company. At the request of customers, this service evolved to also include straightforward mechanical assemblies as well as complex fabricated sheet metal products. Many of these early customers still work with Frencken, and the tradition of adding value to our products and services continues today.

Tolerances in the sub-micron range
