Our Missions

The mission of Sharretts Plating Company is to effectively apply high-quality coatings to a wide range of materials to meet the demands of our manufacturing and industrial customers. Whether we are providing finishing solutions for metal, plastic, ceramic or any other material, we strive to be experts in applying coatings using the most innovative, efficient techniques available. Furthermore, we endeavor to offer a broad assortment of industrial metal finishing services in the additive manufacturing realm to create long-lasting products that bring significant value to consumers.

We Don’t Focus on One or Two Types of Metal

While some metal finishing and plating companies limit their services to coating with one or two types of metal, SPC has the capabilities to coat with numerous metal materials, which enables us to provide a reliable finishing solution for just about any customer requirement. Over the course of more than 90 years in business, we’ve perfected techniques for the application of nickel, tin, copper and zinc, as well as precious metals including gold, silver, platinum, rhodium and palladium.

We can also coat with various metal alloys such as palladium-cobalt, palladium-nickel, cobalt-boron and zinc-nickel. Additionally, we have developed a mastery of electroless plating procedures for the precise, uniform application of nickel coatings.

SPC Also Offers High-Tech Industrial Metal Finishing Services

During our nine decades in business, we’ve learned that to fulfill our mission, we must continue to evolve as a metal finishing company. Today’s manufacturing world makes use of advanced technology that requires highly specialized plating and coating solutions.

Thus, SPC has transitioned from a “traditional” shop to a specialized metal finishing operation. Our capabilities now include robotization and other cutting-edge procedures to meet the requirements of high-tech industries such as medical and aerospace. Unlike traditional metal finishing companies, we don’t focus on quantity or volume. Instead, we view our purpose as offering services of “distinguishable value” that help our customers meet their most demanding 21st century manufacturing challenges.

We Offer a Number of Additional Industrial Surface Treatment Services

Although the roots of our company may lie in electro- and electroless plating, SPC also offers a wide variety of additional industrial surface treatment services to meet our customers’ requirements. These include the use of abrasive blast systems for cleaning, polishing, edge-breaking and general surface preparation.

Other available services include plating on ceramics and plastics, chemical film coating, immersion washing, shot peening and parts cleaning. We can also design prototypes that allow you to test a process prior to mass application so you can move forward with a high level of confidence.

For Your Surface Treatment Needs

Continuous Marketing Helps Us Keep Abreast of Industry Trends

Meeting the ever-changing demands of our customer base requires a constant focus on keeping up with new developments that directly impact our industry. We engage in an assortment of marketing activities to stay abreast of industry changes. By regularly attending industry-related trade shows, we’re able to gain firsthand exposure to the latest trends and “pick the brains” of other industry experts. We always take the time to read trade journals and other industry publications to remain current on the flurry of technological innovations that are flooding our industry at a breakneck pace. We also provide higher education learning opportunities for our employees so that our staff is the most knowledgeable in the surface treatment industry.

We View Our Purpose as Being Educators — Not Just Sellers

We believe our constant quest for knowledge enables us to bring additional value to our customers. This helps to differentiate us from other finishing and plating goals whose primary purpose is to sell you a service. By taking the time to educate our customers, we also help them make the most informed decision when selecting a finishing service. We’ve found that taking a consultative approach as opposed to a selling approach allows us to foster and maintain longstanding relationships. Our legions of long-term customers trust us to assist them in making a wise decision that will enable them to meet their productivity and profitability goals.

In short, at SPC, it’s not just about price, quality, and delivery. It's about having the knowledge and experience so that our customers are educated and have the confidence that we fully understand their needs.

We Keep a Close Eye on the Future

A company does not stay in business for more than 90 years without being able to adapt. We never lose sight of the fact that the needs of our customers are constantly changing and evolving. We’ve always taken great pride in our ability to anticipate the future requirements of manufacturers and to make changes to our operating processes and service offerings as needed.

Over the years, we’ve been able to adapt to change with greater speed and agility than the vast majority of our competitors. This has allowed us to maintain our status as metal finishing industry innovators and stay ahead of the technological curve.

Quality Is at the Forefront of Everything We Do

To fulfill our mission of applying high-quality coatings, it is imperative to make quality an essential component of every process we implement at our facility. We’ve been an ISO-certified metal finishing company since 1994, which exemplifies our unwavering commitment to meeting the highest quality standards. We’ve also had the honor of receiving the prestigious Best Manufacturing Practices Award from the Department of the Navy. Our focus on continuous improvement ensures quality will always be a top priority at SPC.

We Strive for Total Customer Satisfaction

Our mission and purpose and everything that goes into fulfilling it helps us to reach our ultimate goal: achieving total satisfaction for every customer, regardless of size or project scope. That’s what Sharretts Plating Company aims to deliver.
