August 4th, 2016 – SYNCFAB hosted it’s fifth event with the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of San Leandro & San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Innovation STIR program for a private tour of America’s first Electron Beam and Laser Welding CNC precision metal fabrication shop for over 40 years! This was a very special tour purposely limited to a small group of attendees each who was required to sign an NDA due to the secret nature of the unique fabrication program and projects occurring at this facility!
No photos were allowed during the tour so be sure to sign up for the next event so not to miss the special content!
Founded in 1972 this 60,000 square feet family owned Precision Mechanical Fabrication business is ISO-9001: 2008 Certified comprehensive manufacturing and engineering company.
