CNC Machinist Apprentice
Fort Walton Machining, Inc.Full time Full day
Fort Walton Machining is a critical infrastructure company so we will not shut down even if the Governor issues a "stay at home" order because we are mandated by the Department of Defense.
Fort Walton Machining, Inc. was formed in 1987 as a special custom manufacturing operation specifically to service Eglin Air Force Base and its prime contractors. It began as a small cell with only two employees, but its mission even then, as it is now, was to provide highly technical, precision machining with zero defects delivered on time to its customers' complete satisfaction. Commitment to that mission rapidly earned the company its reputation for "walking the walk" not just "talking the talk". As evidence of this, Fort Walton Machining became a certified "Dock to Stock" supplier for one of its major customers as early as 1991.
Certified to AS9100 Quality Standards as well as government and military quality standards MIL I 45208A, the company was heavily involved in the Air Force AMRAAM project from 1991 to 1993. The vision always was to expand into commercial markets as well as to continue serving the military and its primes. Early in 1995 the company formed a business alliance with a major corporation involved in the medical industry and this alliance lead to further business with their associates in the British Isles and Japan. As a result of these rich experiences, Fort Walton Machining today is an international service company, capable of accommodating customers all over the world. As part of Fort Walton Machining you will continue our legacy to provide a top notch service to our customer.
