We are Trivalent Chrome – We are not closing

Trivalent chrome plating provides a visible and more environmentally friendly option for achieving a lustrous chrome finish

Nottingham Platers specialise in providing decorative chrome plating solutions for commercial customers. Established in 1982. We have over 37 years of experience and have gained an enviable reputation and a wealth of experience in chrome plating all types of items. Based in the East Midlands we undertake work for clients across the UK.

Chrome Plating Process

We offer multiple trademarked finishes and typically plate onto mild steel and have particular expertise in applying chromium plating onto brass, which is a notoriously difficult process. Please note that we do not plate onto stainless steel or aluminium, although we do offer a finish that makes mild steel look like stainless steel.

We only use Trivalent chrome plating, which is a safe process that complies with COSHH standards and is safe for both our staff to operate and for the environment.

Our own comprehensive in-house facility allows us to prepare work to the highest standards for the required finish. Incorporating pickling, bead blasting and polishing, all designed to prepare work for the optimum finish. Followed by plating in multiple different colours and finishes, inspection between each stage and then protective packing, to ensure optimum delivery quality.

This means, that you deal with only one supplier, who is fully responsible for the complete job.  We are a one-stop shop for your work preparation, polishing and plating needs, and we can complete your work usually within 7 days.

What our customers have to say…

Great and friendly service. Fantastic polished chrome finish.
Not cheap but the result is well worth the cost.
Brilliant place for vehicle restoration such as chrome bumpers etc
Would recommend anyone to use this company.


I have used this company on numerous occasions for work items but most often classic motorcycle parts. They are a courteous professional team with vast knowledge in their field. Their work is always top quality and turnaround times are excellent.
They have even allowed me to collect items from their home address when work commitments have prevented me from collecting during works hours proving they always willing to go that extra mile for their clients. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone.


Always speak to Simon, top man, helpful and knows his stuff, since the E.U made chrome platers job harder these guys took the bull by the horns and set up with the new process.
They do a fine piece of work that would look good on any concours piece of machinery.
They also offer some unique chrome finishes as well.
Thoroughly Recommended.


We have used Nottingham Platers for the last 8 years and have found that the service and quality is 10/10. We have also found that you will get no better service when requiring a quick turnaround as we have had parts back within 48 hrs or sooner when needed in an emergency.
