General Grinding & Mfg Co, LLC has served the aerospace and commercial manufacturing industries for over 60 years. The company prides itself on exceeding customers’ expectations in meeting high quality, on time delivery, and unmatched flexibility.
General was founded in 1946 by Bob Boone in Huntington Park, CA. From its early beginnings, General was focused on precision grinding service to numerous customers in the Southern California region. The shop later moved to South Gate. By 1990, Se Heung Kim bought the company from Bob. At that time, Mr. Kim began a program to modernize and improve the manufacturing processes and customer service for General. The company began to grow and eventually moved to Santa Fe Springs and in 2002, moved again to its current location in La Mirada in order to keep up with its growing manufacturing capacity.
Mr. Kim hailed from the original All American Drill Bushing in Glendale and spent over 20 years leading the manufacturing team at United California Corporation (aka. United Drill Bushing) in Downey, CA. Together with his partner Silas Pak, the General management team brings over 70 years of experience in precision component manufacturing and grinding.
This commitment to excellence continues today with a company-wide program of continuous improvement rooted by a Quality Management System that is ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D certified. “Our commitment to the quality of our products is unmatched,” explains Mr. Kim. “Our business going forward is focused on maintaining our competitive advantage in a global marketplace. And, that is achieved only through superior levels of quality, value, and overall customer satisfaction.”
