An Inside Look at Imperial Plating Company


The first step in the production process is order entry, where all parts are entered into our computer data system and assigned individual work orders, job tickets, and job reports for traceability. Each order is then tagged for processing.


Parts that require a high luster or a satin finish may undergo polishing or buffing. This process enhances the base metal and results in a higher-quality end product for the customer. After polishing and buffing has been completed, all parts are degreased and inspected in preparation for plating.


Imperial offers both rack and barrel plating. If it's metal, we can plate it — everything from miniature electronic terminals to 14-foot channels, from automotive components to continuous hinges, and from precision hand tools to decorative point-of-purchase displays. Even more impressive. Imperial offers a variety of finishes needed for your application. To continue our ever-striving commitment to excellence. Imperial has invested in our employees through weekly and monthly incentive programs for all personnel. We have developed a training program designed to educate our employees in each specific area of their job.


Imperial is dedicated to quality and has developed an independent quality assurance program. Our specialists carefully examine your products at every stage of the production process to ensure that they meet your requirements. As a result, fewer than 1 percent of products finished in our plant each year are returned for reprocessing.
In order to provide you with the highest-quality product in.a timely manner. Imperial has implemented a check-and-balapce system that guarantees plant productivity and efficiency. Incentive bonuses are awarded each month to employees who go above and beyond in their efforts to achieve complete customer satisfaction.
