Our Services

We offer industrial and commercial Gold, Silver, Copper, Nickel, Brass, Electroless Nickel, Tin Plating, and now we can Anodize TITANIUM. In addition, we also offer polishing and finishing services. A wide range of traits is important for metal work because each metal has different properties. In addition, each job is special and we always take into consideration what works best and is most cost efficient for our customers. For example, if a customer sends us a gun and asks us to silver plate it, we always recommend nickel plating instead, because nickel is more durable when firing and is not as soft as silver. In conclusion, we always put our customer’s needs ahead of our own.

My partner and armorer took a look at it and was amazed and very pleased with both the speed with which you finished the project and the quality of the finish out of the box. Much better than what we had been getting from our local vendor.  –  Anita, Windrose Armoury
