Co-operative Plating Now Conducting Seminars

Co-operative Plating’s Sales and Technical Departments recently began offering seminars educating customers on the metal finishing industry. Seminars are available upon request at the customer location or on-site at Co-operative Plating. In a typical seminar, the sales and technical departments work collaboratively to deliver exceptional seminars educating customers on the metal finishing industry. If it’s on our site, we are more than happy to give you a tour of our facility and plant. Our sales manager says, “It’s off and running, we’re doing them and excited about it.  We’re getting positive feedback from our customers. They’re in high demand.”
