Local high school robotics team 2491 "No Mythic" brings their robot to the shop to show us what they've been working on. Quite impressive. And check out that purple anodize job! We'll be cheering you on at the Regional Championships at Mariucci Arena on March 28th-31st.
The team takes time away from nickel plating and anodizing to practice worst case scenarios in what is called a "spill drill".
With the recent update of the ISO 9001 standard from 2008 to 2015, Twin City Plating made the decision to lead the way and gain ISO 9001:2015 certification. We're proud to be a one of the first metal finishers to achieve this certification. Just another way TCP is dedicated to being a leader in the metal finishing industry. Feel free to contact us with any questions or RFQ's.
Twin City Plating Inc. has been named one of the best finishing shops in the U.S., according to an industry benchmarking survey conducted by Products Finishing magazine, a trade publication which has covered the industry since 1938.
The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed a company in several different areas, including Current Finishing Technology, Finishing Practices and Performances, Business Strategies and Performances, and Training and Human Resources.
Only the top 50 shops were given the honor of being a Products Finishing magazine ‘Top Shop’ based on a scoring matrix of those four criteria. Check out the link for more details. http://www.pfonline.com/articles/2016-top-shops
