History
Coastal Enterprises HQ
Corporate Headquarters located in Orange, CA

Coastal Enterprises is a privately held company founded in 1973 by Mr. Chuck Miller, President, after his participation in the Saturn S-II Space Program at Rockwell International. The Saturn Launch Vehicle used polyurethane foam as its exterior fuel tank insulator, and it was at this time that his experience with this unique material began.

Products manufactured by Coastal Enterprises and sold internationally since 1973 were primarily for the machining industry. They were high density urethane blocks used to “proof” computer programs on numerically controlled milling machines. Ease in machining and lower cost made urethane the preferred choice over proofing on the actual steel used for the part being machined.

Initial development of Precision Board began in early 1989. By redesigning the chemical formulation and manufacturing methods of our machining product, Coastal Enterprises developed Precision Board Plus fabrication material with physical characteristics to meet the rigorous demands of an artist’s creation and the machining standards of today’s 5 axis milling machines alike.

Companion products for Precision Board have also been developed specifically for use on high density urethane, including adhesives, primers & fillers, textures & coatings. Each product is unique, easy to use, and has multiple uses for the sign maker. We continue to search for additional products to compliment the line.

Sales and marketing of the Precision Board product line is based on our commitment to provide the highest level of support to our Distribution Network. This support is made possible through a high quality line of products, point of purchase data sheets, technical support, training seminars, and fast order turn around. We are dedicated to our distributors.

Coastal Enterprises corporate headquarters is located in Orange, CA, USA.

Chuck Miller, President of Coastal Enterprises, manufacturers of Precision Board HDU, was recently featured on the Composites World podcast. He discussed his background and involvement with the evolving world of composites and tooling from his time as a Manufacturing Engineer on the Saturn S-II, the second stage of the Saturn V Moon Launch Vehicle (fabricated by North American Aviation in Seal Beach, CA) through the founding of his company, Coastal Enterprises, and into what the future may hold for composites.
