Hammerton is, first and foremost, a custom lighting manufacturer. We’ve spent the last 25 years optimizing our operations to deliver an end-to-end custom solution to specification, budget, and schedule. Over two thirds of our production involves custom work. We routinely modify existing designs in size, scale and form, and we incorporate customer specified materials. We also develop hundreds of new designs entirely from scratch every year.
Unlike most of our industry peers, 100% of Hammerton operations take place under one roof, in our Salt Lake City manufacturing facility. Seamless integration of all activities facilitates our design, quotation, submittal, engineering, rapid prototyping and manufacturing processes, and ultimately our speed to market. 90% of custom jobs ship in just 6-9 weeks.
Design & Engineering Services
As a custom manufacturer, design & engineering horsepower is at the core of our value proposition. Each of the industrial designers and engineers that represent 20% of our workforce possess an intimate understanding of the complexities of building design-leading products that satisfy a complex set of functional requirements. 3D modeling, rapid prototyping, technology integration and finite element analysis for thermal and structural applications are just a few of the processes these teams deploy every day.
Craft-Based Value Engineering
Conventional wisdom would suggest that quality craftsmanship rarely comes at an accessible price point, but the opposite is true at Hammerton. We’ve spent a quarter century optimizing our operational skill set to serve a variety of customer needs, and budget friendly design is at the top of the list.
We combine deep engineering capabilities with mastery of multiple fabrication processes, so we understand all the various ways that fixtures can be built to meet a given budget. Modifying designs, re-engineering components, substituting lower cost parts and simplifying aesthetic details are a few ways we reduce labor and material costs, while maintaining the ideal level of design integrity for each project.
