An oxymoron? We disagree. Indeed, conventional wisdom would claim that quality craftsmanship rarely comes at a competitive price. But quite the opposite is true at Hammerton. We’ve spent two decades refining our operational skill set to serve a wide range of customer needs -- and creating budget-friendly designs are at the top of the list.
Of course we employ a remarkable team of world class artisans, and we take great advantage of modern manufacturing practices. But our capabilities go well beyond the standard formula of “combining the best of the old and the new”. We also possess extensive expertise in engineering, fabrication and process innovation across a wide range of materials and technologies. So we understand all the various ways that fixtures can be built to meet aesthetic and functional requirements within a given budget.
Modifying designs, re-engineering components, substituting lower cost parts and simplifying visual details are just a few ways we reduce labor and materials costs while maintaining the ideal level of design integrity for each application. High precision, state-of-the-art machining and cutting equipment allow us to execute short runs of high tolerance components and build custom tooling and jigs for rapid fixture prototyping, fabrication and assembly.
And because it all happens under one roof here in Salt Lake City, we maintain end-to-end control of all activities involved in servicing every aspect of our customers’ needs. This enables us to produce fixtures of unparalleled quality as well as faster turnarounds, superior service, exceptional value and, ultimately, a very happy customer.
