Large UK Ceramic Manufacturer approached Frost Electroplating with an opportunity to tender for their subcontract Ni & Au business.
Discussions with the management team at Frost highlighted their concerns that there was no supply chain in Europe as their Dutch supplier had just gone into administration.
It transpired that plating of PZT ceramic was extremely difficult hence the lack of suppliers. However our technical department researched the process of Ni plating PZT ceramic material. Within 4 weeks of the initial contact a dedicated plant was built to accommodate the in house developed process.
Full production quickly followed, that not only met the current weekly export requirements, but also pulled back the outstanding balance.
