American Precision Industries (API) started in 1978 as a small, two-man operation just outside Portland, Oregon. It was sales by day, manufacturing by night — with a do-or-die attitude — serving an emerging chip manufacturing industry.

Today, API has expanded to over 90k manufacturing square feet, employs over 125 dedicated personnel. API continues to serve the semiconductor industry as well as aerospace, medical, renewables and defense.

Our primary goal at API is to work toward continuous improvement in all phases of business, with the belief that providing the best support possible to our customers is the perfect roadmap for continued success. Our customer is our employer, and we strive to maintain a quality culture - focused on embracing our customer’s needs and expectations.
