“We recognized that there’s a major market gap, for accurate, flexible and cost-effective thin metal components and services,” says Shimifrez’s president Hassan Nojoumi. “New advanced technologies and investments in state-of-the-art capital equipment are lowering production costs, increasing productivity and allowing for the creation of new innovative products.”

The quick response time and lowest photo tooling costs make photo chemical machining and electroforming ideal for both prototyping and medium to large production quantities.

“Shimifrez is committed to a culture of continuous improvement,” Nojoumi adds. “As 9100 certification illustrates our ongoing efforts to improve in all areas of our business, we already observe stringent quality standards since we supply highly regulated industries such as medical and micro electronics. It demonstrates our commitment to quality.”


With over 35 of experience in the field of micro metal fabrication, Shimifrez’s activities in photo chemical etching and electro-forming has expanded and now includes creating critical components for satellites and instrumentation’s to micro meshes/grids and super fine sieves, lead frames, ultra micro metal parts, shadow and sputtering masks, fluidic channels, reticles, shims, targets, RFI/EMI/ESD board level shielding, heat sinks, Bipolar plates and consumer wearable technologies. Shimifrez is capable of making parts from 0.02X0.02” (2X2mm) and feature size of less than 15 microns.

Components can be manufactured in stainless steels, nickel alloys, beryllium copper, Metglas, Hastelloy, phosphorous bronze, kovar, inconel, DCB substrates and aluminum alloys to name a few.

Shimifrez’s new facility is located at 311-329 Rayette Road, Units 9 & 10, Vaughan Ontario, L4K 2G1. Canada.
