In 2002, the specialty finishing and plating company, C&R Plating Corporation was purchased by KC Jones Plating Company. Today, more than 60 employees combine their knowledge and skills with state of the art technology to ensure that C&R Plating Corporation is your best choice for electroless nickel plating, and zinc, zinc-alloy or any of our other special finishing processes.

Housed in a modern 35,000 square-foot facility, C&R Plating is qualified to meet the needs of all major automotive companies. We have also consistently maintained the necessary processes for meeting EPA requirements. Our modern laboratory has all the equipment needed to meet our customer requirements.


Originally incorporated in 1968, C&R Plating Corporation began production with zinc and yellow chromate and expanded to include electroless nickel in 1974. By the late 1970s, C&R had earned a reputation for repeatable jewel-like quality.

Based on a philosophy of exacting quality, reliable turnaround, and personalized service, C&R grew to become a full-line specialty plating house serving the automotive off-road, aviation, electronic, medical and general manufacturing industries.
