Our size and stability set us apart from the typical job shop. We’re among the largest plating and metal finishing companies in America, wholly owned by a privately held equity group. We’re certified by Nadcap for chemical processing, and our on-site chemistry lab and team of on-site chemists ensure that every job is handled and verified according to the proper specifications.
We continually invest in technology and capital improvements to ensure we offer the capabilities our customers demand including composites plating (metalizing) and the ability to have your jobs plated and anodized at our new facility in Empalme, Mexico. Our wide range of abilities from electroless nickel to gold plating and beyond allows us to be the go-to source for jobs that must be done correctly and on time.
Our attitude for excellence is shared with the environment too. Both of our facilities in Minneapolis and Mexico boasts a state-of-the-art water treatment systems that allows us to return water to the earth just like we received it.
OUR HISTORY AS A PLATING COMPANY
INCERTEC got its start as Spec Plating, a specialty plating company, metal finishing and engineering solutions company that was founded in Fridley, Minnesota -- a suburb of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul -- in 1993. Our operation was expanded in 2002 when we opened a Kansas facility. The company was renamed INCERTEC in April of 2011 to more accurately reflect our commitment to innovation and certifications. Out of the Minneapolis facility, INCERTEC serves the aerospace, defense, medical and other major industries. We routinely operate gold plating, nickel plating, specialty composites plating (or metalizing) and various anodizing lines out of this location.
In late 2011 we opened a state-of-the-art metal plating facility in Empalme Mexico. The location has been highly successful and in great demand by our aerospace clients. It is poised to become a Tier I aerospace supplier. This new location makes plating and metal finishing processes available to manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, medical device and other industries in Mexico, shortening their logistics streams and lowering their costs while retaining the INCERTEC commitment to quality.
INCERTEC offers choices for plating on, or metalizing, composites which can provide numerous improvements over conventional methods. One method allows composites to become plateable without chromic/sulfuric etching; allowing for a permanent and stable treatment to a wider variety of polymers than ever before. The process is precise, re-plateable, and offers consistent and predictable results piece after piece. Learn more about plating on composites.
