Shipping - Our Staff


With a combined experience of over 60 years in the plating industries we have the capability to train newbies so they may looked like seasoned professionals. SPI has plated items as large as a motorcycle frame all the way to the smallest of parts about the size of a grain of rice. Production leads are able to work with clients to minimize rack marks, ensure proper rotation to reduce air pockets, and are not afraid to speak their minds if they believe there is a better way to run a part. Customization of racking and individual work tickets for every job our quality cannot be beaten.
