Scarrott Metallurgical Co.
There is no room for mistakes in the aerospace industry. For that reason, firms turn to Scarrott Metallurgical Co. (SMC) for the final steps in manufacturing components. Metallurgist Edward Arata, Ph.D., says, “We’re very good in our niche.”
Los Angeles-based SMC provides high-quality vacuum heat-treating and brazing services for the aerospace, defense, medical and computer industries. “We are currently approved by all of the major prime aerospace companies, and hold a NADCAP heat-treating certification,” Arata says.
President David Scarrott co-founded the company with his partner, Robert Fairbanks, in 1977. Fairbanks and Scarrott, both metallurgists, formed the company after seeing an opportunity to serve the U.S. space program, General Manager Jose Catano says.
