5 Star Review

Dear Tim,

I cannot thank you enough for all of your help. I can honestly say I have never had a finishing vendor, whether it be heat treating, plating or any other service, who was as helpful as you were. The education you gave me thru our discussions and your literature has made me very confident in my knowledge of this process and how I can leverage it to make a superior product.

The parts we had made worked great. Our customer is very excited about it and has gone as far to say they are the best parts available on the market. He loved the fact that it welded perfectly even with the plating on the areas where heat was applied. The fact that we didn’t need to mask these and could pass that savings on to our customer is a perk I wasn’t even aware of when choosing this plating. Thank you for giving me that insight. You have made a life long customer and I will be sending you the upcoming production run of these in the next month or so as well as any other job I have that you provide a service for.
