From our location at the Victoria International Airport on Vancouver Island, we’ve provided custom composite fabrication, repair and design services to the local aerospace industry for more than 20 years.
INNOVATIONS FOR AEROSPACE AND BEYOND
Driven by his lifelong passion for aviation, Jon Harwood founded the company in 1999, bringing his ingenuity for developing complex, exacting processes to build unique structural components that can be used across industries.
Over the years, we’ve grown in size and skill, but remained agile enough to tackle both small-scale projects and larger production runs. And, with our extensive tool and equipment library, we’re always inventing new solutions to help our clients in ways they never could have imagined.
From drone prototyping and reverse-engineering complex parts, to precision trimming and multidirectional milling using our state of the art 5-axis CNC machine, the problems we solve and the industries we serve grow more diverse every year.
A Creative Approach to Problem Solving
Put simply, we’re in the business of solving problems. And as a small Canadian company located in the Pacific Northwest, we provide quick delivery and individualized customer care, with a team skilled enough to be a crucial part of your supply chain.
Custom Fabrication AND DESIGN
We specialize in custom tool design and manufacturing for the production of components for aerospace and other industries.
Our experience in the aerospace industry makes us your ideal partner in the design, fabrication and assembly of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV).
From concept to production, we work closely with research and development organizations to bring prototype projects to life.
For more than 20 years, we have served the aerospace industry with advanced composite fabrication using proven methods, processes and leading edge equipment.
Our extensive knowledge of lightweight materials including fibreglass, plastic and carbon fibre, allows us to design and build just about anything.
From advanced materials research to manufacturing techniques for all applications, we provide consulting services to design and engineering teams across industries.
“Viking Air is pleased to have Harwood Custom Composites as one our key partners. Over the years HCC has come thru for Viking on multiple projects and complex parts that are required to a high standard to meet aircraft specifications. HCC has always been extremely responsive to our needs and has a very professional team to work with. We look forward to a continued relationship for many years to come. .”

“I have worked with HCC for the past 10 years and developed an excellent working relationship with the team. The HCC team has again and again delivered on time and on budget for multiple complex projects. The quality and attention to detail meets or exceeds our internal OEM specifications for both custom one-off prototypes and routine manufactured products. In addition, HCC has been used to design and develop host manufacturing jigs, fixtures and tooling at a reasonable cost and in a timeframe that suits our needs. I fully recommend working with Jon and the entire HCC team.”
– Trent Brown, Viking Air
“Working with HCC has been a great experience. They are very responsive to our requests, many of which are urgent, which is always appreciated. The team at HCC are very good communicators, which allows us to be able to plan ahead as needed.”

WHERE PRECISION MEETS SPEED
CONSISTENT HIGH QUALITY
Whether we’re building a proof-of-concept drone for a major aerospace company, or producing small-run tools for a modest budget, our rigorous internal quality management system ensures all manufacturing and final components comply with strict OEM and STC certifications, and undergo AMO evaluations to ensure compliance with type, supplemental and airworthiness certificates.
Custom composite fabrication is a complex, exacting process. This is why we use the most sophisticated technology and tools to accelerate design and repairs, while reducing time and the cost of production.
