“You guys are leading the way for the next generation of aircraft and spacecraft. Thanks for your efforts.” – Sunita Williams
After a lengthy precise project, Apex Machining, Inc. helped to create a sophisticated experiment container for one of its Tech customers. Astronaut Williams was in charge of conducting many complex maneuvers and operations to test the composite components created by the customer. This project was successful, in part, due to the fine precision work done by Apex Machining, Inc. of Broomfield, Colorado!
