Our engineering team and workforce have many decades of combined experience in the metal finishing industry, enabling us to offer the highest quality service to our customers. We have the expertise and enthusiasm to get involved in projects from an early stage, if required, and to offer sound technical advice on all aspects of aluminium treatments, from suggesting a finish, to the selection of appropriate alloy.


Lead Times

Plating Centre offer a standard lead time of 1-3 days for the processing of most orders, however we understand that there are often circumstances which do not allow such lead times. To that end we also offer a ‘platinum service’ which dependant on finish, batch size and component size may have a lead time as low as 6 hours.

Quotations and Samples

We are able to offer rapid response to quotations and can accept drawings in a wide range of electronic formats to make the quoting exercise more accurate and timely.
We can provide a sampling service should it be required and are keen to do this at early stages of major projects
