Southwest Metal Finishing


Premium plating and finishes for a superior sheen

As one of the largest metal finishers in North America, our expertise, experience and state-of-the-art, fully automated plating lines mean you save time and money as we work together to find the best possible finish for your product.

We provide polishing and plating for a broad range of metal substrates, including aluminum, copper alloys, steel and zinc. And we offer a variety of premium decorative and functional finishes, all of which are compliant to the most rigid testing. Our variety of plated finishes includes:

  • copper
  • bright chrome
  • semi-bright nickel
  • satin chrome
  • bright nickel
  • black chrome
  • particle nickel
  • brushed finishes
  • duplex nickel

In our duplex nickel finishing process, we apply two layers of nickel, the first being semi-bright, and the second being bright. The process offers exceptional corrosion resistance because the bright nickel offers cathodic protection to the semi-bright nickel.

Our automated and manual plating lines provide both flexibility and high volume capabilities. These lines are stringently controlled and analyzed by the latest monitoring and laboratory equipment, while automated hoist and transfer systems allow for accurate, dependable and repeatable coating thicknesses.

Add to this our commitment to regulatory compliance and a state-the-art water purification system, and you can be confident that you will receive a product of the highest caliber from a company committed to protecting our environment.
