About Us

learn a little about us

Merridale Polishing & Plating Ltd was established in 1973

In 1973, we started as a small polishing shop in Merridale Street West, taking our name from our first address.

Harry, Mohan and Dave were 3 polishers who started their business doing what they knew best, each of them having to work two jobs until Merridale could support itself.  Merridale quickly established itself with Centreless and Flatbed polishing and 10 years later we needed more space to expand our growing business so we moved to Oxford Street in Bilston.

It was at our Bilston site that we started to develop our own polishing mops and compounds, where these are still produced today.

Seeing the potential in being able to do chrome plating and other metal finishes, we opened up our plating shop in Wednesbury in 1996.

We have built up our plating side to make us one of the main chrome plating suppliers to the leisure, car and motorcycle industries.  In addition to our large hand polishing shop, we also offer Nickel plating; Electroless nickel plating, copper and Black chrome.

Always mindful of how we can reduce our environmental impact, two years ago we also added Trivalent chrome to our list of finishes.

Our location means we are only 5 minutes from Junction 9 of the M6, which makes our company very accessible from all main routes.

We also operate our own transport fleet and we can collect & deliver nationwide.

Our polishing and plating facilities are registered to ISO 9001:2008.
