Capabilities…

…Above and Beyond Our Customers’ Expectations

Having been in the business as long as we have, we have fine-tuned and perfected the art of plating, meaning that we have the capacity, equipment and procedure down to a science. Our chemical tanks are substantial enough (up to max. 82”x 38”) to sustain heavy-duty truck bumpers and other bulky, custom-shaped parts, down to small knobs and fixtures.  Our 4-hoist system allows for easy maneuvering of big, cumbersome parts, and our custom racks mean parts are held securely, ensuring a quality plating job.

From job difficulty and capacity concerns, to on-time production and quality of finished product, we meet the needs our our customers

  • Superior quality plastic finishing/coating
  • Deadline oriented
  • Other “difficult” substrates we plate in addition to plastic:  Fiberglass, ABS, ABS/PC, PA, PP, some TPOs, etc.
  • Many finishes offered:  Chrome – bright or satin; Nickel – bright or satin; Copper, Brass & Bronze
  • Full-service prototyping
  • Variable tank capacity (max. 82”x38”) – Nameplates & badges to grilles & bumpers
  • Production rate: 6 to 8 racks/bars per hour
  • Part tracking and traceability
  • State-of-the-art manufacturing and coating equipment
  • Proprietary chemical technology
  • GREEN technology “- a “closed-loop” process/coating system; ammonia free; all chemicals are reclaimed/reused
  • Also GREEN – We use trivalent chromium (chrome) due to its environmentally-friendly nature
  • The only current Michigan chrome manufacturer with “zero” discharge
  • Highly trained, responsible team
  • Quick response to customer needs and requirements
  • Controlled anode positioning for targeted coating coverage
  • Premier coating appearance (color, brightness, depth, etc.)
  • Proprietary chemistry and formulations = lower precious metal concentrations)Turn-key processing:  we can develop a plating process specific to your prototype and production requirements
  • We are able to plate Polycarbonate/ABS Alloy (PC/ABS) plastic

Prototyping, pre-production runs and low-to-mid-volume production are our specialty, however we can do custom one-of-a-kind pieces as well – we do it all.
