San Val Precision was founded in 1954. During the past 53 years, San Val has grown and evolved into a premier precision manufacturing facility. The success of San Val Precision is a direct result of the hard work and vision of Homer Scott, former President of San Val, and his son, Wesley, who continues the family tradition of excellence and innovation as president of San Val Precision.

Wesley Scott was raised in the machine shop industry. He started working at 12 years old and learned the business from the shop floor up. After graduating from high school in 1981, Wes devoted himself full time to San Val Precision. At this time, San Val had two CNC lathes and 2,700 square feet of manufacturing space.

In 1985, San Val Precision moved to its current location in Moorpark, California, more than doubling its size to 5,500 square feet. Two more CNC lathes and a CNC mill added needed capacity for the growing business. Wesley took over shop operations in 1990 and embarked on a decade of carefully planned expansion. With Wes’ valuable experience in complex machining of exotic materials, San Val’s reputation and customer loyalty continued to grow.

The 1990s witnessed many changes at San Val. CNC milling capabilities were added. A Hitachi Seiki HG400 was bought in 1996, the same year Wes became President of San Val Precision. A stable customer base provided solid growth for San Val as the company expanded into close-tolerance hydraulic valve bodies and actuators for aircraft applications. Annual sales increased from $360,000 in 1992 to well over $1,000,000. Outstanding management and cutting edge technology has positioned San Val Precision as a leading supplier of precision machined components for the 21st century.
“We plan to continue our steady growth in the new decade by using technology to boost our manufacturing efficiency,” says Wes. “We are moving toward cell manufacturing and replacing our older equipment with newer, more advanced machine tools.”

“Our annual sales are now in excess of $1,500,000 and growing. We’re grateful to our loyal customers and we look forward to bringing our vast experience in close-tolerance, complex machining to new customers in the coming decade.”
