From the Black Forest to the world
Power supply leaders since 1987
plating electronic was founded in 1987 north of the town Freiburg in Breisgau. The aim was to develop and produce linearly regulated desktop rectifiers and compact rectifiers using switch mode technology. After moving three times, the company settled to its current site in February 2016 with their headquarters in their own building in Sexau near Freiburg.
The consistent path to international specialist supplier
Initially, the company produced mainly for the German electroplating industry. But it was not long before international sights were strategically set. In 1995, the first sales and service competence centre was set up in the USA with Hendor-pe INC. This was followed by sales and service offices in France, Great Britain, China, Germany and Spain, together with further sales partnerships in Asia, Europe, Australia and South America.
Constantly growing diversity in electrochemical coating processes
Today, more than 100 people work at plating electronic and its partners, developing sophisticated solutions for demanding power supplies in industrial and scientific electrochemical processes in numerous application fields: from electroplating to surface treatment of aluminium (anodizing), from cathodic dip coating (E-coating) to electrolytic water treatment.
