Our History

Nutmeg Chrome Corporation was established in 1944, and continues today under the same family ownership. Nutmeg Chrome is recognized as a leader in the metal finishing industry. We are well known for our expertise in polishing and plating molds used in the plastic industry, as well as for our innovative thinking in researching and implementing new plating processes and procedures. High quality, up-to-date technology and reliability stand behind every piece of work we turn out at Nutmeg Chrome. 

In the beginning, we developed the original Hard Chrome plating on molds for plastics. Over the years, we have slowly expanded our plating capabilities and now offer seven different types of coatings. Each coating application offers different features and benefits and was developed with a specific need in mind. Nutmeg Chrome was a pilot company in developing several of these coatings.

Nutmeg Chrome has been the recipient of many awards through the years, and most recently was awarded Mass Mutual's Blue Chip award.
