What our Customers Are Saying

We have been working with Advanced Plating Technologies for a couple of years and always receive great service. The communication is easy, and the plating makes our ammunition look great.

Maggie B

In two and one half decades, we have used more than our share of plating companies, some good, some bad, but none consistently excellent like Advanced Plating. Advance Plating takes a total quality approach to every part and develops a stable, robust process that produces the same result time after time. In addition to the outstanding quality, fast delivery, and excellent pricing, they are just great people to work with.
