Tube Bending

A legacy to stand on

Trusted Quality, Exceptional Service

Lafarge & Egge’s Lynnwood, WA location is both the divisional headquarters and the site of our responsive, build-to-print, small diameter, tight tolerance tube bending and assemblies operation.

In business since 1962, L&E leveraged its trusted aerospace reputation in order to grow. The company acquired Clackamas Welding and Alpha Machining, in 2012 and 2015, respectively. Now a vertically integrated, diversified manufacturer, L&E has effectively expanded its operation, services and product applications.

Lafarge & Egge maintains AS9100/ISO 9001 accreditation for fabrication, and DDTC Registration for ITAR compliance. In conjunction with its Nadcap accredited precision welding and machining divisions, the range of manufacturing projects Lafarge & Egge’s shop can handle is extensive.

Our diverse client base knows they can always rely on Lafarge & Egge for a timely, cost-effective, high quality product.
