Sithech Customs is an Active Duty military (Navy Diver Chief Petty Officer) owned CNC precision prototyping, fabrication and high mix-low volume machine shop. We are a Limited Liability Company (LLC) that was established in October of 2012 in Kailua, HI We are now located on Kent Island, in Stevensville, MD just over the Bay Bridge. Although we have a few proprietary products we manufacture and sell directly, our primary mission is helping
entrepreneurs to bring their own prototype to market.
Large scale industrial machine shops charge too much money due to enormous overhead cost in facilities, machine tools and employees. Their profit bottom line is heavily effected by every second of CNC machine spindle down time and anything that precludes maximum efficiency. Reading between the lines quickly reveals that large quantity production runs, NOT one-off prototypes and small runs, are the money makers for these shops.
Sithech Customs takes advantage of the light-industrial machine tool market and low overhead, which drastically reduces our operating cost and your prototype cost. Machining is usually not the sole operation on a new prototype, and we are prepared to offer value-added services such as welding, and specialized surface coatings like Cerakote, Powder Coating, Parkerizing and Anodizing.
Entrepreneurs are able to upload their design file to our secure Dropbox along with their non-disclosure agreement. We accept many file formats, anything from a jpeg image of a crude napkin sketch, engineering 2D drawings and complex 3D models. Utilizing your files and personal input for design intent, we will bridge the expensive gap between engineering and design theory to a Ready For Manufacturing (RFM) design. Sithech Customs will save the entrepreneur and small business alike thousands of dollars in research and development cost.
I started this company because of my own struggles and frustrations of trying to bring my ideas to market. We are passionate about both CNC machining and affordable precision prototyping with high quality parts we BOTH can be proud of.
Let Sithech Customs help you develop your prototype or produce your parts, and we'll do our part to craft a high quality and precise product.
