About Company Biography

ABOUT US

Coastal Manufacturing, Inc. was established in 1978 to produce precision metal fabricated components, assemblies and cabinets.

Today the company is an industry leader with its customer base primarily in the Pacific Northwest. We now serve a broad array of industries in such fields as automotive, art, Point of Purchase and Point of Sale displays, electronics, sports equipment, and marine just to name a few.

Our core manufacturing business is housed in a 30,000 square foot facility laid out with efficient product flow in mind. Sub contracted operations that are needed from time to time are performed by companies with whom we have long standing relationships with and who act as an extension of our company.

The knowledge we have gained since our doors opened in 1978 provides us with an unparalleled foundation of knowledge and experience in our industry. Our manufacturing philosophy is to combine the utmost in integrity with our highly experienced employees utilizing the most efficient and sophisticated automated equipment available.

Coastal is proud to have been ISO compliant since 1995. We are an environmentally conscious (green) company which recycles 100% of our scrap waste, and use only RoHS compliant components. In 2009 all factory lighting was replaced with an energy efficient system that incorporates low consumption lighting fixtures and motion detectors to only light occupied areas.

We realize today's customer is seeking a working relationship with a contract supplier who has a proven record over time and who has the capability of providing a wide range of manufacturing disciplines in-house. Coastal fills that demand by employing only people of the highest integrity and experience, then providing them with state of the art tools and machinery to meet today's customer needs.

We produce the highest quality parts and we also excel at offering solutions to our customers.

Quality / Lean Manufacturing

 

We are excited to join the ISO 9001:2008 community! We have been compliant for so long it only seemed natural to go through with our registration in the early 2014.

An electronic copy of our Coastal Manufacturing Business System Manual is available upon request. We believe in providing continuous training within our organization and this allows for a robust and successful in-process inspection program.

Our ISO journey allows us to measure our continuous improvement process and we would be more than happy to share an electronic copy of our Coastal Manufacturing Quality Manual.


A great deal of our continuous improvement is derived from our commitment to the LEAN manufacturing process. LEAN has a great set of tools we have successfully implemented.

Our desire to be the best at low volume / high mix of all types of products enable us to target all non-value added items, set-up, queue, and waste thereby significantly controlling our manufacturing costs.

Whenever possible we work with the customer to break down their quantities to smaller batches in order to get closer to a single piece flow. This means parts are delivered even more quickly!
