Who we are: Lillard Manufacturing Inc. is a small
contract manufacturer in Northern California, started by Joe Lillard in 2004.
Our initial work consisted mainly of aftermarket automotive, marine, and
motorcycle components. In the last two years, we’ve moved steadily away from
those markets, and into more elaborate and demanding industries like fluid
management, defense, electronics, and alternative energy.
Where we are: We are located in Woodland
California. In July 2008 we moved to a new 4500 square foot facility, at
Harter Business park on the North end of town. We’re 12 miles from Sacramento
International Airport, 12 miles from Davis, 85 miles from San Francisco, and
400 miles from Los Angeles. See the Location page for exact details.
What we do: We specialize in contract
manufacturing of complex machined components. This often includes plating,
light assembly, packaging, and delivery. We also perform subcontract and
2nd/3rd tier work for larger machine shops that don’t have horizontal
machining capability. We do not currently offer Turning, Grinding, or EDM
services in house.
How we do it: We utilize the best available
machining and inspection technology to gain a competitive advantage over
traditional machine shops. Our equipment includes two Mazak high speed, 4
axis, horizontal machining centers, and a Direct Computer Controlled (DCC) 5
axis Brown & Sharpe CMM capable of inspecting all critical features of most
parts in a single operation with no human intervention. Lean practices,
automated machining, automated inspection, and good old fashioned attention to
detail are the building blocks of Lillard Manufacturing Inc.
Why you should work with us: We offer the
flexibility and personal communication of a small local machine shop, with the
equipment and manufacturing techniques of a global contract manufacturer.
We’ve intentionally structured the business in this fashion to give you the
best of both worlds, without the negative aspects of either.
Our goal is to help keep crucial defense and
high-tech manufacturing stateside, by offering an economical, easy to work
with, local source of top quality components. We are not aiming to have a
200,000 square foot shop with 500 employees and 300 different customers. We
prefer to build strategic “partnerships” with a few customers who can truly
benefit from our services, while allowing us to maintain our path of steady,
