MPF Plating quality at the highest possible standard

MPF Plating Limited are a Made in the Midlands Bronze Member

About us

We are a family business dedicated to the service of high quality vat zinc plating.  The original company was acquired in 1964 by the Freeman family with its base in Summer Lane where MPF Plating’s Managing Director -  Mark Freeman gained his wealth of experience within the trade.  The Steward Street factory was acquired in 2003 where Mark was General Manager specialising in zinc plating.  Mark is now owner and Managing Director.

Our Facility comprises a fully automated four station rack zinc and six station barrel line together with clear and colour passivations as well as additional bleaching processes.  In addition to this we also have a chrome line for plating on stainless.


Zinc plating is generally used as a protective finish on mainly steel products, but has progressively been required to meet a more aesthetic standard, where a reasonably reflective finish can be achieved at a reduced cost compared to Nickel/Chrome plating, although the finish achieved is greatly dependant on the condition of the substrate.
