LA Gauge Company History
L.A. Gauge was founded in 1954 as a precision gauge manufacturer. It soon expanded into gauge tolerance production parts, exotic metal and ceramic parts. In 1968, we designed and constructed our current primary 30,000+ sq. ft. manufacturing facility that includes environmental controls for ultra precision measurement and handling of exotic metals. In 2007, we expanded our capabilities by adding a metal optics polishing department.
L.A. Gauge’s plant was designed specifically for handling Beryllium and other exotic materials. The facility has a working Metrology Laboratory with temperature and humidity controls, and a Class 100 Laminar Flow Clean Room for LOX cleaning, assembly and packaging solutions. Now celebrating over 55 years of operation, L.A. Gauge is an innovator in lean manufacturing practices and is the one-stop-shop for the tightest machining requirements of America’s leading aerospace firms.
Located in Sun Valley, CA (next to The Burbank Airport), LA Gauge Company was purchased by current ownership in 2007. Since then, we have grown exponentially and have become the best in class leader in precision machining. Specifically, massive investments in machinery and personnel have always been and will continue to be a focus at LAGC. With the growing demands of the Aerospace & Defense Industries, LAGC is prepared to meet and exceed those demands while maintaining the highest level of quality and on time delivery.
