Specialty finishing and metal plating company C&R Plating, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Michigan-based KC Jones Plating Company, will construct and equip a 7,000-square-foot facility in Columbia City, which will connect two existing structures and bring the company’s total footprint to 37,000 square feet.

 

With its growth, C&R Plating will add a new highly- automated, computer-controlled plating line that will allow it to double its plating capacity and help its clients in the agriculture, commercial, automotive, defense and electronics industries increase the wearability, corrosion protection and the appearance of their products.

 

With construction already underway and the new facility expected to be operating by September, the company plans to create up to 29 new jobs in general plating, shift supervision and quality control by 2017.
