Our Story

As a family owned business, we have incorporated people, technology, quality and service into a national network of the finest plating facilities in the industry. Our business philosophy is simple. We operate with a small corporate team which works closely with each of our five facility general managers.

The intricate art of combining chemical and mechanical engineering in our plating services with creative and innovative industrial applications is our forte. Whether we’re designing and fabricating a system for processing chrome plating for NASA or chrome plated titanium engine components, our total commitment and personal enjoyment of what we do are the reasons we do it so well.

Our exclusive proprietary processes for our plating services, combined with our greatest asset— our people—will maintain our leadership in performance coatings in the 21st Century.
