Apogee Sound International has selected Metalfx, Inc. as its lead manufacturing and assembly partner for its full range of professional loudspeaker and electronics products.

With the next ISO audit in May at the Metalfx facilities, the production of Apogee loudspeakers will be included in the Metalfx ISO 9001 certification. Located north of San Francisco in Willits, Calif., Metalfx has over 150 employees and two production facilities covering over 220,000 square feet. Metalfxs customers include companies such as Agilent, Ciena and Hewlett Packard.

Digital documentation of Apogee’s entire build process now forms the foundation of this enhanced manufacturing process and is backstopped by Metalfx’s Statistical Process Control (SPC). Traditional pin-routers, once the workhorse of Apogee’s wood machining process, have been replaced with precision CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) routers, enabling the achievement of consistently higher tolerances, and potentially, an even better performing product. Apogee’s painting process has been re-engineered and upgraded to include a turnkey trolley system and an advanced heat curing stage, improving the appearance and increasing the durability of all Apogee products.
