About Us

Innovative Thinking, Innovative Process,
Innovative Manufacturing

Innovative Metal Designs of Garden Grove, California began in Orange County, California, 1982 with an old Kent milling machine in the family garage. It’s a family business that began with the dream of creating a company where we can combine our engineering skills with manufacturing.

We got our beginning by manufacturing parts for crash-test dummies and from there we expanded our business to manufacturing parts for GT Bicycles; a company building high-tech performance bikes. Now we make a wide range of high quality parts for various industries including medical turnkey parts for people with disabilities to specialty valves for the aerospace industry.
