Industries Using SLM

Our initial project was machining Guided Missile Launch System Mount surfaces in Navy frigates. Since that time, SLM has expanded to include large machining services for the mining, offshore oil and gas production, fossil and nuclear power generation, fabrication, steel and process industries.

With over 20 years of on-site machining experience, SLM has worldwide coverage from bases located in USA, Australia, the Middle East and Europe.
