A METAL FINISHING INDUSTRY LEADER SINCE 1980.
Founded as Bend Plating Company in 1980 by Frank Tapia, our initial plating shop worked on a diverse range of jobs, from advanced street rod and antique cook stoves to private aircraft aluminum. Although varied, our early projects shared one trait in common; they were always custom.
As the products processed at Bend Plating evolved in complexity, finish and quantity, so did we. After incorporating metal finishing services, our team recognized the difficulty with the then industry darling, brass, and pioneered the use of user-friendly finishes that didn’t tarnish and required minimal maintenance. It only made sense that we would introduce the first gold plated trim for multiple uses, moving US and Canadian markets from brass trim to gold nearly overnight.
SOLID TRUST. PROVEN PERFORMANCE.
Setting the bar for quality and service in the markets we serve.

RAISING THE STANDARD OF QUALITY FOR METAL FINISHING.
In the late nineties we incorporated robotic polishing, employed by less than 10% of metal finishing companies worldwide. We recently started applying decorative PVD coatings in-house. The physical vapor deposition process deposits a thin film of metal on parts and products that’s durable, corrosion resistant and available in a variety of colors. Finally, electroplating, metal finishing, polishing and PVD are under one roof — reducing handling, lead time, cost and liability to our customers.
Since 1980, customers from around the globe have come to rely on Bend Plating as their trusted choice for decorative finishes, providing greater flexibility and unique application in metal processing and finishing.
Today, Bend Plating, Inc. is the premier multi-industry metal finisher, shipping finished products all over the world. Our commitment to quality and service is what makes us stand out. With more than a hundred years combined experience in metal finishing, our highly skilled team is continually trained in technical and problem solving skills. If, for any reason we cannot meet a metal finishing need, we’ll help you find the team who can.
