Our value proposition
We offer comprehensive surface-finishing solutions that enhance our customers’ product quality, improve yields, reduce overall costs, and ultimately enable our customers to win in their markets.
We operate in two business segments: Electronics (“EL”) and General Metal Finishing (“GMF”). Some of the surface-finishing solutions we provide are easily visible, such as decorative plating on plastics or corrosion protection for industrial applications (GMF).
Other surfaces are hidden, such as the complex matrices of electrical connectivity found in printed circuit boards and semiconductors (EL). For our global customers, we are the one-stop surface-finishing solutions partner, who combines a comprehensive systems-and-solutions approach and a truly global manufacturing and sales footprint with superior and customer-centric service.
