Mechanical Engineering Services

We work with companies with very large engineering departments, and companies with no engineering department at all. Regardless of the company’s capabilities, we can bring useful mechanical engineering knowledge to the discussion.

Because we’re also a distributor, we have strong product application knowledge for our mechanical engineering services. Leveraging that knowledge gives our customers access to the specific information they might not otherwise have. We discuss options your engineers might not know are available. And, if you don’t have an engineering staff, we can help you determine exactly what your application actually demands.

We ensure highly effective and consistent results using a collaborative, “customer needs focused” documentation process for our mechanical engineering services. From design to production of prototypes, to final rev specifications ready for full production, we ensure all of your mechanical engineering project’s requirements are met using our testing and validation processes. Our mechanical engineering team knows how to balance cost, performance, and schedule to achieve the best value in design.

Why Choose AOP Technologies?

AOP has earned an excellent reputation servicing the fluid power industry with premium product offerings for over 55 years. AOP was founded in 1963 in Portland, Oregon under the name Air-Oil Products Corporation. In the early days, our business was a distribution of sealing products servicing fluid power customers in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. We soon became the Pacific Northwest’s largest distributor of Parker Hannifin seal products.

Within the next few years, our company expanded and diversified to include the distribution of pneumatic and automation components. Then in 1999, we expanded our business yet again, this time to include contract manufacturing services. We have since become an industry leader with our focus on quality work, competitive pricing, and on-time delivery.

Today we have a 20,000 square foot facility in Auburn, Washington with over 5,000 square feet dedicated to industrial contract manufacturing and plastics machining services including medical device contract manufacturing. Our contract manufacturing division is staffed by highly trained assembly professionals and machinists who are supported by our experienced engineering staff, production management, and quality control specialists.

Our entire staff participates in a rigorous training program built upon a comprehensive library of processes developed through our ISO9001:2015 certified quality program. All departments within our organization are audited annually both internally by our quality control department, and externally by an accredited 3rd party auditor. This is done to ensure both quality and consistency in manufacturing for the customers we serve.

Our business is generally viewed as a high-mix low volume contract manufacturer. We boast an extensive assortment of specialty tooling and automated equipment giving our technicians the ability to very quickly convert assembly lines and ramp up production.

We honor the trust our customers put in us and view those relationships as partnerships. We realize that what makes us successful as an organization is our customer’s success. To that end, we continually invest in tooling, technology, and training in order to provide our customers with premium quality and exceptional value. Our aim is to strive to be the premium solution for manufacturing services for the customers we serve.

If you have a project opportunity and are considering the outsourcing of manufacturing services, we ask that you contact one of our representatives. Let us show you how partnering with AOP Technologies can add value to your business and give you a competitive edge in the marketplace.
