Meet L&T Precision: A Family Business Supporting Some Of San Diego’s Biggest Industries
San Diego is home to many amazing businesses and companies, including a local manufacturing powerhouse named L&T Precision.
L&T Precision is a born-and-bred San Diego contract manufacturing business that handles machining, fabricating, assembly, finishing, and integration for some of the biggest industries in the region.
Here’s everything you need to know about this amazing local company!
What is L&T Precision?
L&T Precision is a company founded four decades ago in San Diego. The Nguyen family started the company in the suburb of Poway, California, as a four-map shop in a 15,000-square-foot facility back in 1981.
At the time, all the company had was a turret and a press break. In the 40 years since its foundation, it has grown to a major powerhouse in the local manufacturing industry with over 100 employees and a 50,000-square-foot facility.
Its client base has grown, too. The company now manufactures orders for clients across North America. It’s not remaining stagnant, either — the company continues to invest in new technologies that help drive innovative solutions for its customers.
L&T Precision prioritizes its people, clients, and the environment, too. It’s a family, minority, and women-owned business that prizes its employees. Through its entire manufacturing footprint, the company remains incredibly conscious of its impact on the environment — and takes steps to reduce that impact.
Back in 2020, L&T Precision also became part of The Partner Companies, a strategic network of specialty manufacturing companies dedicated to delivering solutions to the biggest challenges faced by their customers.
What Does L&T Precision Do?
If you were to boil down what L&T Precision does to a single sentence, it would be this: “For nearly four decades, L&T Precision has been providing peerless machining and sheet metal fabrication services.”
Some of the company’s services and offerings include:
- Engineering design
- Custom Manufacturing
- Complex and simple assembly
- Complete integration of product parts

- Silk screening
- Quality product inspection
In addition, it also serves engineers with CNC machining, turning, punching, laser cutting, forming, assembly, spot welding, and painting.

It also has access to partner companies that can offer additional services, such as chemical etching, forming, electroforming, reel-to-reel plating, plating on plastics, ceramic metallization, crystal growth, finishing, and wire harness assembly.
If you’re curious about what this looks like in practice, the company can turn metal into a finished complex project using CNC machines for automotive or electronics. It can also manufacture sheet metal objects to exact customer specifications.
Throughout its entire process, the company prioritizes Lean Manufacturing, a practice that minimizes material waste and maximizes efficiency.
