High-quality flight hardware (production parts for aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, etc.) is critical to the functionality and safety of every aircraft and spacecraft. The precision and quality requirements associated with manufacturing flight hardware are extremely stringent, as even small defects can have serious consequences in the air or in orbit. Choosing a supplier that has a proven track record of producing high-quality flight hardware as well as the certifications (view ours here), qualifications, equipment, and team to meet these requirements is crucial in ensuring that parts are reliable and perform as expected.
With over 30 years of experience serving the challenging needs of aerospace, defense, and space OEM and Tier-1 manufacturers, some of the largest and most advanced equipment in the world, a highly-experienced workforce of hundreds, and state-of-the-art, clean, and five facilities spanning over 250,000 ft² and equipped with temperature, vibration, and access control, Baker Industries is the flight hardware supplier of choice for most of the industry’s leading organizations. We’ve completed thousands of projects for hundreds of customers, confidently holding tight tolerances on parts as small as an inch and as large as 75+ feet long. In addition to the experience, equipment, facilities, and people to reliably and precisely manufacture flight hardware, our responsiveness to project and customer needs is unparalleled.
Our experience allows us to achieve unmatched precision and quality. We are very confident and experienced in holding general tolerances as tight as ±0.0001″, locating holes with positional tolerances as tight as ±0.00002″-0.0005″, and achieving surface roughnesses as low as 32 RMS.
By seamlessly integrating our in-house manufacturing and engineering capabilities and those of our robust supply chain (for specialized coatings, inspection, and testing), we deliver excellence in flight hardware of all types, complexities, tolerances, and sizes.
At Baker Industries, we’ve always been dedicated to investing in cutting-edge technology to stay ahead of the competition and provide our customers with a single source for all of their manufacturing needs. As a result, we are now home to one of the largest and most diverse collections of manufacturing technology and processes in North America, allowing us to produce flight hardware of all types, sizes, materials, and for all applications.

In addition to our own in-house capabilities, we harness our robust local, national, and international supply chain to provide our customers with turnkey solutions. We frequently source raw materials, castings, forgings, finishes, specialized testing, and more as part of customer programs.
Baker Industries is your single source for flight hardware development projects, prototyping, full-blown production, and legacy/replacement parts. The majority of our work is under 100 units per year, though we have the space and resources to expand that capacity based on customer demand.
We work with a wide variety of materials, including exotic, specialty, and volatile metals such as titanium, magnesium, beryllium, Inconel®, Waspaloy®, Hastelloy, Nitronic®, and more.
