RA Lalli Company was established in 1935 by Romeo Lalli, a manufacturing pioneer in the Aerospace Industry.

Romeo Lalli, an inventor and designer, patented the Lalli process of stretch forming specifically for aluminum and titanium aircraft skins. Romeo designed and built his own stretch form press which is unique to the industry because of its multi-function and hydraulic powered movements.

Today, RA Lalli continues as a recognized leader in the aircraft sheet metal manufacturing industry. We have maintained the proven time-tested metal forming standards developed by Romeo Lalli and combined them with state of the art manufacturing methods and equipment. This practice enables RA Lalli to deliver quality products on time at competitive aerospace market prices.
