M.S. Aerospace was established on June 1st, 1992, with just 3 founding employees, in an empty building on Foothill Boulevard in Sylmar, California, just a few miles from our current location.

The Company’s core strategy was to position itself as a responsive customer-centric niche player in high temperature, high strength aerospace bolts, studs, pins, and screws, serving the jet engine and rocket engine industry. Right from the start, M.S. Aerospace served the most demanding customers in the industry, with some of the most challenging high strength fasteners. This challenging ambition was accomplished with the founding principle of World Class Manufacturing.

In the short term, the depressed aerospace market in 1992 and 1993 forced the company to distinguish itself by concentrating on its core strengths: Unrivaled quality, significantly shorter lead times and superior service. In this way the company was able to maintain tremendous growth even in an industry recession.

M.S. Aerospace soon gained a formidable reputation as a manufacturer capable of producing consistently world class fasteners in impressive lead times, with the integrity and documentation required by an increasingly demanding marketplace.

By the end of 1993, M.S. Aerospace, had grown to 48 employees and was doing significant business with jet engine manufacturers through distribution.

In January of 1994, the original M.S. Aerospace facility on Foothill Boulevard was destroyed by the January 1994 Northridge earthquake. Although a profound blow to the fledging company, M.S. Aerospace secured a building in Burbank and was back in full production by the beginning of February 1994, just two weeks after the earthquake, and just four days after moving into the new building.

The process of rebuilding the company began immediately and was successful beyond expectations, so that by the end of 1994, M.S. Aerospace had 73 employees and had a secured General Electric Aircraft Engines approval with a 100% quality rating. The impressive growth continued through 1995 and 1996, and the most significant factor in this growth was attributable to providing Pratt and Whitney and General Electric with impeccable quality jet engine fasteners in very short lead times.

By the end of 1997, with 130 employees, M.S. Aerospace had outgrown it’s building in Burbank, and moved into a brand-new, 47,000 square ft., purpose-built facility in the Cascades Business Park, in Sylmar, California.

Once again the growth of M.S. Aerospace continued unabated, driven by our ability to provide our customers with an unrivalled level of service, and the very best critical-application aerospace bolts in the business. In this period, we gained ISO9001 and AS9100 certification, Nadcap accreditation of our Lab and Non Destructive Testing, and many new OEM approvals.

Such has been our growth, that in June of 2004, with 175 employees, M.S. Aerospace moved once again, still within the Cascades Business Park in Sylmar, to another custom building, this time of 100,000 square feet, with 14,000 square feet dedicated to a brandnew Thermal Treatment facility which has already gained Nadcap accreditation. We have also added in-house cleaning, passivation, lube, and drilling. Now with over 300 employees, M.S. Aerospace continues to go from strength to strength, still serving the most demanding customers in the industry, and adding many high strength, high fatigue structural and landing system parts.

Reacting to customer demand, in the last few years we have added self-locking nuts and barrel nuts to our portfolio of products, and are proud to say that we have succeeded in this field beyond our expectations.

However large we grow, M.S. Aerospace looks forward to serving our customers with consistent reliability, quality, integrity, and service, building on our knowledge and experience in the high strength, close tolerance and high temperature fastener market. Our commitment to Continual Improvement is prominent in every business decision we make, and our dedication to providing our customers with the very best product and service means our customers will receive the best value possible.
