Is there a minimum quantity for your production runs?

There is no set answer to this question, although you can use 5,000 pieces as a starting point. Larson is not in the short run business; all of our work is custom and is run on permanent, dedicated tooling.

We are able to read most popular CAD formats including IGES, DXF, DWG, and PRT. If you have any questions, just give us a call.
