Fabrication Companies? Answered

Lets say I have an idea and it would be extremely difficult to make myself so I want a company to do it for me.  Does any such company exist and if so, what are they called?

 I have already done some google searches, but with no success.

The circuit board would only have to have the smd chips pre-soldered:  I could do the rest.

I guess enclosure is the wrong word.  I mean more like a bunch of laser cut parts (most plastic, but some metal).

Do you have a full complete and tested circuit diagram? An individual might have a go at doing that for you, but no company will make a one-off like that.
Laser-cutting can be bought for one-offs.

 I would need an enclosure with lots of holes cut in it and a circuit board with surface mount work.

(does that help?)

Enclosure- size, shape, material, number and size of holes?  This will affect who you get to do the enclosure for you.

The circuit board should be easier to find a place to do, circuit boards are circuit boards, but it does slightly depend on the size and complexity.

Look for "electronics assembly" or "PCB fabrication".  You'll get lots of hits right up front.  I'm guessing you haven't done any such search, or you'd already have options, and you'd be asking us questions like "do you know these yahoos?".

you want them to solder it for you?

well i know sparkfun can make custom enclosures, except theyre a bit pricy

also, golden pheonix will make and solder pcbs for you, but again, somewhat expensive

Google Is Your Friend.  Search for "fabrication, <city>, <state>".  You can even be more specific -- do you need welding?  Sheet metal work?  Circuit boards?

You'd really have to give more details.  You don't need to reveal secrets, just something like "I need a complicated box made, about three feet high" or "I need a circuit soldering together in a tiny space", that sort of thing.
