Advanced Plating Technologies was originally founded in 1948 as Artistic Plating Company by James H. Lindstedt, Harry C. Lindstedt and Earl Herrington. Artistic Plating began as a simple job-shop welcoming retail refinishing work as well as the smallest of production orders. The founders chose the name “Artistic Plating” due to the company’s decorative finishing work of both private heirlooms and religious artifacts; this company name also afforded an early alphabetical listing in the phone book. Artistic Plating grew steadily through the years, developing a commercial/production focus and expanding to offer Chicago Illinois plating services within the regional plumbing, power distribution and medical markets.

As the company grew in finishing capabilities and engineering expertise, the strategic focus shifted into more technical markets where sixty years of metal finishing experience could be leveraged to offer additional plating services within the Chicago Illinois market. In 2013 the name of the company was changed to reflect the forward direction of the company and industries serviced. Today Advanced Plating Technologies is an industry leading, ISO 13485:2016 & 9001:2015 certified and ITAR registered job-shop that provides Chicago Illinois plating services within demanding manufacturing sectors.
