The Leader in Independent Aerospace Surface Technology
Valence Surface Technologies is one of the largest independently owned aerospace and defense metal processing companies with a focus on flight critical parts. The platform was formed through the combination of Coast Plating, Inc. and Chrome Plus International, two leading metal finishing companies based in Los Angeles, CA and Wichita, KS.
The Company operates four facilities in two of the most critical aerospace manufacturing hubs, and benefits from a very comprehensive set of OEM approvals that span a wide range of surface treatment capabilities. Valence's core expertise is in servicing mission critical parts on key aircraft platforms where the quality demands are stringent and the cost of failure is high. The platform's broad suite of services include non-destructive testing, shot peening, chemical processing (anodize, chemfilm, passivate, and plating), and chemical milling. Valence's operations provide a unique set of capabilities, allowing for the processing of parts ranging from large monolithic wing spars, bulkheads, and fuselage skins, to highly intricate engine, electronics, and flight control components.
"We are excited to form this new partnership with the collective vision to build a multi-regional platform
focused on adding value to and reducing capacity constraints in the global aerospace supply chain
by providing the highest quality and reliable metal finishing services."
- Tim Mickael, Coast Plating
"The combined business will continue to leverage best-in-class systems, production efficiencies and customer communication to meet the increasing demands from the escalation of aircraft build rates. Our goal is to solve technical issues and production bottlenecks for both the machine shops and OEMs in each of the major aerospace markets." - Jorge Della Costa, Chrome Plus
