Decorative plating – a steadfast dedication to aviation
Since 1984, HighTech Finishing has supplied decorative metal plating for interior hardware and trim parts to elite aircraft operators around the globe. HighTech offers more than 130 standard finishes and custom capabilities for aircraft interior parts. Aircraft manufacturers such as Gulfstream, Embraer and Dassault Falcon Jet, as well as many well-known completion and refurbishment centres, rely on HighTech to enhance their interiors.
To obtain the best finishing results on aircraft interior parts, HighTech relies on a team of experts who understand the craft and utilise the latest techniques to deliver a superior final product. Our dedicated artisans work each part by hand at our shop in Houston, Texas, USA, and utilise the latest in plating technologies available on the market today.
Unlike other platers, HighTech is dedicated exclusively to aviation. Because business jet owners and operators want the absolute best for their aircraft, they demand the highest-quality decorative plating available. By plating only high-grade aviation parts, the risk of plating bath contamination is reduced. The result is a zero-defect part delivered on time for each customer. This strict dedication to aviation allows HighTech to structure processing lines to accommodate quick turns, small orders and custom VIP parts in an industry that relies heavily on perfection.
HighTech strives to meet – and even exceed – environmental standards for electroplating. Our company is permitted by the City of Houston to discharge treated water directly into the city’s waste treatment system. As part of this green initiative, we introduced a Source Reduction/Waste Minimization Plan that uses specific chemicals and filtration processes to remove contaminants that could otherwise enter the water system. Testing is performed multiple times per day at our laboratory to ensure that effluent is within permitted limits.
Finally, with the current COVID-19 concerns, HighTech has voluntarily taken extra precautions in processing, wrapping and shipping to ensure parts are free from possible contamination.
