Anoplate offers metal finishing services nationwide including plating of copper, nickel, chromium, zinc, silver, gold, cadmium and tin, various types of anodizing of light metals, conversion coatings such as passivating and phosphating, dry film lubrication , small lot painting, and vacuum impregnation.
Anoplate's reputation for quality and workmanship, diversity in process offered, and ability to meet rigid specifications has led it to serve a broad base of industries including aerospace , computers, defense , electronics, medical , optics, and recreation.
Anoplate's growth phase began in the early-70's. The firm's initial quality manual was issued in January of 1976 and growth accelerated throughout the 80's. Much of the new growth came from Fortune 500 firms and their suppliers who demanded more formalized quality systems and strict compliance with specification requirements.
