Sheet Metal Contractor in San Diego
AP Precision has many years of experience in sheet metal fabrication for customers in San Diego as well as for national companies. Sheet metal fabrication is the process by which thin sheets of processed metal are modified and transformed into everything from construction components of your home, to the housing for your desktop PC.

Some of the industries we have created products for include: architectural, computing, robotics, biotech, military, civil engineering, water filtration, power generation, consumer goods, lighting, and luxury goods.
