Take a walk through Forming Specialties today and you may have trouble imagining that, back in 1976, the entire company was three stretch-form presses and five employees. These early years saw the fabrication of automotive aftermarket, architectural and other commercial products, as well as the beginnings of long-standing relationships with several major aerospace firms.

By 1984 the product mix at Forming Specialties was split 50/50 between the commercial and aerospace markets. At the same time, a decision was made to concentrate the sales effort toward aerospace manufacturing with the company management and philosophy realigned toward this goal. The results were so successful that, by 1986, it was necessary to add equipment and personnel to keep pace with growing demand. In May 1986, Forming Specialties relocated to a 20,000-square-foot facility in Compton, California.

The following years saw steady growth at Forming Specialties as the company built upon a reputation of solid quality and reliability. Today, Forming Specialties operates a 40,000-square-foot modern facility with 35 employees and 9 stretch presses. “Because our products are found in critical applications like commercial airliners, military transports and rocket boosters, we maintain our quality and delivery ratings at better than 99% - and have for the past several years,” explains Darrell Madole, president. “This level of commitment to quality and reliability means that most of our products bypass our customers’ inspection and go right to the assembly lines.”

Our tradition of integrity and technical expertise at Forming Specialties translates into a cost-effective stretch-forming solution for the aerospace industry. Our business philosophy - and our promise to you - is summed up by the Forming Specialties pledge: “To respond to the needs of our customers with quality, on-time results, while never losing sight of our ability to be flexible, responsive, and technically able.”
