Smith Plating and Polishing performs both rack and barrel plating processes. Rack plating is best for large or fragile items. Plating small items in bulk is an economical and effective application for barrel plating.

In addition to rack and barrel plating services, Smith maintains 15 polishing stations to perform the polishing of steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, zinc die cast, aluminum, and many more metals and surfaces.

We provide decorative chrome plating (hexavalent) for a wide variety of industries including antiques, automotive and motorcycle parts, medical , fire protection, food processing, and retail display equipment.
