Silver and Tin Plating

New Facility for Silver and Tin Plating

PRV Engineering take pride in the fact that the range of high precision capabilities that we offer are controlled and undertaken in-house. Our recent investment in a silver and tin plating facility is further demonstration of our determination to not only maintain this policy, but to ensure the quality of the finished product remains first class.

Securing other Busbar Business

Silver and Tin are essential finishes for components that are designed to carry heavy electrical currents, a perfect example of this is Busbars. By investing in our own plating facility, PRV now has the ability to have a firmer control over prices and lead times.

Lead time stability and continuity of supply

Outsourcing is big business and something that PRV relies upon as many of our clients outsource to us. Outsourcing can however be a dangerous policy if the stability of suppliers cannot be guaranteed. It is another reason why we invested in the plating facility, it helps to ensure we maintain our own stability.
PRV have been trading since 1986 and we are one of the fastest growing high precision engineering specialists in Europe. With our aggressive investment policy, led by CEO Simon Jones, we intend to continue in that vein. Our order book continues to grow and the stabilisation to our Busbar business, via the investment in our plating facility helps to convince our clients that we are here for the long term.


If there is one single factor above anything else that is responsible for our success then it is our policy on quality. We operate a zero tolerance policy on rejects which underpins everything that we do. Our new plating facility is testament to this. We manufacture products which require numerous skills and processes, finishing is the final operation and the quality and standard is of the utmost importance. There is no better way of controlling the quality of the finish than by simply doing it yourself. Our new plating facility enables us to do just that.
