In operation since 1947, Hughes Bros. Aircrafters, Inc. has been at the forefront in the manufacture of precision airframe sheet metal details and assemblies. We are known for our abilities to take a project from a concept, blueprint or digital data to completed assembly.

Since its inception, Hughes Bros. has been under the same ownership at the same location. This foundation has and continues to give our customers the confidence that every product that we manufacture is of the very best quality possible.

We strive to remain the leader and have taken many steps to ensure that we remain on the cutting edge of technology. With the tried and true method of drop hammer, press brake or rubber box forming coupled with our newest additions of a Three Dimensional, Five-Axes Water Jet system and a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), we will continue to blend our core specialties with the latest  technology in order to support a new generation of aircraft.

With the quality required in today's environment and in our endeavor to be certified in the newest quality systems, Hughes Bros. embarked on a nine month session of training conducted by El Camino College in conjunction with the California Manufacturing Technologies and the State of California Employment Training Panel. The training was given to all company employees. The curriculum included basic math, blueprint reading, metallurgy, SPC, TQM, TLC and  lean manufacturing. Our combined efforts played a major part in our accreditation as a Boeing D1-9000 Rev A supplier.  We are currently approved to AS9100 N/C and are nearing our completion of the requirements of AS9100 Rev A. Remedial training is completed as necessary and new requirements are implemented as required.

Recently, we received a Nadcap certification for the heat treatment of Aluminum alloys. This is indeed a necessary step forward in our efforts comply with the  ever-changing aerospace industry.

Additionally, we are honored to be a part of some of our customers' delegated source programs, such as the Boeing Commercial Aircraft ( Wichita & Seattle ) - Delegated Source, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems ( Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Mesa ) - PVA, Boeing Transport Aircraft ( Macon & Long Beach ) - PSID, and Northrop Grumman's Key Plan program. Under all of these programs, Hughes Bros. performs final acceptance inspection and ships directly to our customers' stock.

We welcome all inquiries as to our capabilities, and look forward to maintaining old relationships as well as establishing new ones.
