We have nearly 80 years experience in the electroplating industry. Some of our more recent market activity is detailed below.
The need for plating in the electrical and electronics
industry is primarily for enhanced conductivity and
soldering. Plating services relevant to the electronics
industry include silver, gold, nickel, and copper. We
provide certificates of conformity as well as a fast
The image to the right shows thousands of silver plated electrical contacts being weighed.
Most of our engineering clients know exactly what finish
they want as its on the drawing, and they want it fast.
Finishing is the last part of a long engineering process
and when our clients are behind, they know they can
count on us to do the job quickly. We operate 24 hours
a day, 7 days a week. We have taken delivery of engineering
components from Plymouth in the morning and had them
returned that same evening with a tin finish. If you
have a rush job, call now on 07971 989 178

We work closely with architects to ensure that they
get the finish they want. We recently carried out work
for an architectural practice that wanted brass struts
in a board room to match the colour of the existing
veneering. We offer a range of plating services that
offer variations in colour such as gold, silver, antique
bronze, oxidized copper and phosphating as well as finishing
services such as polishing and rumbling.
Applications for plating in the manufacturing sector
is vast. We pride ourselves in the range of coatings
offered and our versatility, in fact, if you have a
requirement for a process we don't currently offer,
we'll invest in the equipment to make that service
: One of the most common reasons
for the use of electroplating is to increase an items
resistance to corrosion. Zinc, nickel and chrome are
all ideal for this. We offer a wide range of plating
options including multiple coats and specialist sealants,
lacquers and oils. We also have the technology to analyse
the thickness of a surface coating, and to carry out
salt spray testing.

and have a zinc coat with a Tri-Passivate.
: Many of our clients need a decorative
finish, whether or not the plating requires additional
qualities. We offer gold, and gilt coatings as well
as silver, copper, brass, bronze, and chrome in a variety
of luster including dull, bright and satin. We also
offer a variety of black coatings including chemi-black,
ebernole-c and phosphate.

We offer metal cleaning as a service for both old and
new components. Chemical cleaning is useful for stripping
internal areas of items such as tubes & pipes or
components where internal weld is present and machining
is not possible. It is also useful for preparation of
material for conventional finishing, electro & electroless
deposition and surface conversions.
also offer polishing and rumbling services.
provide a rapid turn around on cleaning jobs and cater
for most items.
: We offer de-embrittlement for items
such as springs where a soft flexible protective finish
is required by ensuring that all hydrogen is removed
items after coating as well as hard finishes such as
electroless nickel with thicknesses of up to 300µm
for a hard wear and impact resistance finish.
We offer restoration services to industry as well as the general public. Whether its chrome, silver, gold or pickling, we can offer you a quick turn around. We handle hub caps, displays, trophies, railings, hydraulic piston rods, valves, and just about anything that already has a plated coating. If you have a restoration project and are looking for an electroplating service, call us now on 07971 989 178
