About Us

The success of Karas Plating is due, in no small measure, to the experience and quality of its staff. The equally critical ingredient has been the ability to listen to the four main demands of the customer, and subsequently, structuring the entire company to deliver these four demands as standard, every time.

These customer demands are now the 'four corner stones' of the Karas Plating ethos:-
