Founded in 1971, our company is fully independent and is registered to the new BS EN ISO 9001-2000 Quality Assurance Accreditation.
We occupy our own modern premises which are continuously being extended and improved allowing us to keep pace with demand for our services.
Our anodising laboratory is manned by professionally qualified personnel and is equipped to carry out testing and inspection as required by British and Foreign specifications, in addition to routine process control work. Facilities exist for analysis using an Automatic Titrator with computer recording, Vickers Micro Hardness Testing, Taber Abraser and SUGA testing for measuring film wear characteristics and for checking sealing efficiency 'Anotest' equipment.

Our customers are spread throughout the UK and for specialist operations we receive work from all over Europe.
At a practical level we have 10 anodising vats one of which is 6 metres long by 3 metres deep by 1.2 metres wide. We have a chromate conversion line and our new electroless nickel plating facility has been in production since the end of 2001.
We undertake both high volume and prototype anodising work and have departments dedicated to either commercial or technical specifications.
Aware that ours is often the last process before completion of a job, we aim to minimise turnaround times. Whilst 48 hours is probably an average, we do operate a 'while you wait service' if need be. For several large customers we offer afternoon collection with delivery the following afternoon.
