Professional Metal Plating and Polishing Services in Philadelphia

Metal polishing and plating on motorcycle wheels

Founded in 1984 by Juan Gabriel when, an apprentice of the trade for decades, decided to launch Philadelphia Chrome.  Built on the premise that great craftsmanship and dedication to a finished part was only half the equation the other half was the clients’ satisfaction and experience with the restoration of their parts, this is the sum of the company’s success.  Today, Master Plater and Metal Polisher along with son are still as passionate and dedicated to achieving show quality finishes for industrial, custom and decorative applications.

PCC has a renowned reputation for their motorcycle parts but also service antique cars, boats, planes, “if it has a metal surface we can restore it back to its original brilliance”.  We can also change a metal finish (i.e. silver to copper) and apply different finish techniques such as glazes (i.e.copper with black glaze) to give your parts a custom look.

PCC has a great working partnership with other plating facilities.  If our operations cannot accommodate your part or you are asking for a service we do not provide “we will find a way to make it happen”.  It is that type of meticulous care we put forth to produce the best finishes and customer satisfaction which is unrivaled in the industry.

Philadelphia Chrome Plating is situated in the Bridesburg neighborhood of historic Philadelphia, PA with easy access to I-95, railway and freight carriers. Directions to our modern plating facilities are available via our Contact Us page.
