A key component of any successful product is its mechanical structure and enclosure.
A potentially good product can fail if it is not suitable for the environment in which it has to work, if it is too expensive to manufacture or too difficult to handle. Exposure to industrial settings, outdoor weather conditions, dust, dirt, vibration, human interaction as well as aesthetics must all be considered to ensure the success and reliable application of a product.
With a product line of our own and over 35 years of manufacturing experience, we understand product development and can help you with yours.
With strengths in sheet metal design, electrical panel wiring and gas appliances, our experienced engineering and manufacturing staff can design equipment according to your application and specifications, select appropriate materials and finishes, optimize manufacturability and minimize cost. Whether your product needs to be housed in a bungalow, mounted in a cabinet or case, mounted on a frame or requires covers, panels, brackets, linkages or mounts, we'll work with you to design your enclosures, packaging and components from concept to finished product.
We can act as an extension of your engineering group by providing CAD modeling, analysis and detailed manufacturing drawings and by maintaining complete drawing packages. As a certified ISO 9001: 2008 company, we can administer design requests and meet all your document and quality assurance requirements.

“I have a small business making high-end contemporary furniture. I was looking for a supplier who was willing to work with me in the development of metal parts for my prototypes, and who understood the importance of delivering high-quality fit and finish. Bob Martin and his team at Hovey have been absolutely fantastic in understanding and responding to my needs--even though I’m just a small customer. I sincerely appreciate all their hard work on my behalf. My customers and I are thrilled with the results.”
