Default Looking for a Machine Shop/ Fabricator (business to business contract)

The company I am looking for is looking for a Machine shop/fabricator to help us out in a big way. We are trying to build a complete custom one off protoype vehicle. We have lost all of our shop support due the the demands of our production vehicle part rework. We are trying to come up with an alternative plan to have this vehicle built by the end of October.

What we are looking for in a shop:
Full machine shop with capibilities to weld steel and alum, heat treat, hand assemble large vehicle structural parts all the way down to very tiny components(possibbly a few thousand machined/fabricated parts), balancing, and material handeling (component assembly)....... Just for starts, we are also a full metric company so being able to work in metric or convert from standard material to metric measurements on the fly would be really helpful.

We currently use variour forms of alum from 5000 series to 7000 series, stainless steel, and mild steel where needed. We need someone familiar with 7000 series and how it cant be welded and how it machines like steel. The other materials seem to be straight forward.

This job would probally demand a couple guys on it full time, most information from our end would come inthe form of 2D prints, 3D cad data (catia), and verbal directions. Some of the processes of assembly and fabrication will need to be worked out on the fly.

The company I work for is located in Aubrun Hills, a local shop would be best but the right shop is what we need. I am putting this out there looking to help out someone in a big way wanted, our needs will be very specific and the details worked out by management. This is a feeler not a guarentee of a contract. I know a lot of people on this board do this for a living and my own a company able and willing to take on this project. If you want more information PM me with some of the abilities of the shop, where they are located and I will give out more information, I can not give you everything as a simple NDA will need to be signed to disclose the fine details of the project.
