MEET OUR TEAM
Director Sales & Marketing
Sales Operations Manager
At Mika Metal Fabricating if we don’t deliver our customers can’t deliver. Whether making a fully assembled product ready to sell immediately to the market, or a single component of a larger project, Mika strives for impeccable quality and on-time delivery. This is key for our success; but more importantly, it’s paramount to the success of our customers.
At the same time, Mika will not jeopardize the well-being of our employees, the sustainability of our planet or put short-term gain before the long-term financial health of our company.
