Douglas Chroming

Established in 2002, Douglas Metal Finishing Limited is one of the leading chrome platers and metal finishing companies in Great Britain.

Our two working Directors have been involved in metal finishing for over 70 years combined and we have retained many of our original staff meaning or experience and expertise in the restoration of vintage, custom and show finishes comes second to none.

We specialise in the restoration of classic car and motorcycle parts and work with restoration garages across the UK, Ireland, and Europe, but our expertise doesn’t stop there.

From bathroom shops, plumbers and well-known tap and shower manufacturers, medical equipment, electrical and boat manufacturers, we plate for them all.

We are the finisher of choice for a bathroom manufacturer who has been appointed manufacturer of kitchen and bathroom taps and mixers to the late H. M. the Queen, so our quality is seen in all the nicest places.

From the minute you contact us, you will know that you are dealing with a professional Company.

We believe that our customers have a right to the highest possible standards of quality and service.

This is reflected in everything we do, from single items through to major projects from multinational companies.

We carry out triple plate chroming, using only the very best available chemistry.

We offer a range of colour finishes, including chrome, black chrome, nickel, gold, copper, bronze in polished, bright, satin, brushed, matt and weathered effect finishes.

We are committed to achieving the highest standard of finish possible. All of our work is carried out by hand using the same labour-intensive methods originally used to finish the bright work of sought after classics and vintage marques.

Unlike many companies, we do our own polishing and electroplating on the same site to enable us to keep tight control of quality.

Supplier issues? We can also source and supply a range of bespoke parts and offer storage on site.

We also like to keep it green and so our plant meets and exceeds all current requirements on health and safety and environmental and effluent control regulations.
