about us.

Applied Processes, LLC is a family owned and operated machine shop started by Harold Darnaby in 2001. After working thirty years as a tool and die maker, machinist and plant manager, Harold began rebuilding automotive paint pumps in his garage.

Since then, Applied Processes had grown into a manufacturer of large, machined components with our specialty being contract machining, big and small lots, and production prototypes. The commitment to our customers is to provide our customers with high quality components at a reasonable price and delivered in a timely manner.

Today Applied Processes is owned by Steve Darnaby and James Greenwell. Both partners have nearly thirty years manufacturing experience including automotive, automation, material handling, transportation, defense, and general metalworking.
