About Us

Founded in 1981 by Lois, G.J., and Charles Barre to provide Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) services to the casting industry, Kittyhawk remains a small business that continues to be family owned and operated. 

The company began with a National Forge HIP unit that has a working zone of 18” x 60” capable of 15 KSI and temperatures of up to 2250°F.  Currently, Kittyhawk operates four HIP units out of the Garden Grove, California facility and two HIP units at the new Canby, Oregon facility. 

Kittyhawk is dedicated to providing excellent, timely and economical services to our customers. We serve companies from the aerospace, commercial, military, automotive, firearms, and oil and gas industries. At Kittyhawk, we are committed to continually improve service, effectively to better satisfy the needs of our customers through fast turn-around of parts run to exact specifications. This commitment to quality has allowed us to maintain our ISO 9001 and AS 9100 certifications, along with our NADCAP accreditation for HIP. We also maintain source approval by all major prime contractors including but not limited to Honeywell, UTC Aerospace Systems, GE Aviation, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls Royce. In addition to AS9100 and  NADCAP quality standards, we adhere to the import and export compliance regulations for ITAR and EAR classifications and hold a CLASS 07 FFL. 

The goal of Kittyhawk Products is and will continue to be a quality company that provides personalized service to its customers. We are committed to saving time and lowering costs for our customers. We continue to reach out to different industries through our research and development helping others that may also benefit from the use of Hot Isostatic Pressing. Kittyhawk Products’ senior personnel are qualified experts in the field of Hot Isostatic Pressing, able to provide individualized consultation to the industry.
