Redefining Industry Standards since 1964


Four Companies,

One Goal.

For more than a half century, we've pushed and pulled a sometimes hesitant industry to deliver a better, more corrosion resistant, more consistent product, manufactured in a greener facility. And by doing so we’ve redefined the standards of our industry.

Redefining Our Industry's Standards

Believe it or not, delivering the finest chrome plated bars, induction hardened chrome plated bars, and OD chrome plated tubing to our customers was not enough, so Industrial Hard Chrome had to evolve into a company doing more than chrome plating.

To achieve our goal of Redefining The Standards, we needed to control the raw material. We invested in a custom cold finishing bar line and formed a second company, Bar Technologies, to purchase and process only the finest raw materials directly from producing mills to very exacting specifications. By doing so, Bar Technologies could then deliver the finest TG&P product to Industrial Hard Chrome.

Responding again to what industry customers needed and to again, Redefine the Standards, we formed a third company, Fluid Power Manufacturing. Customers wanted the option of cut-to-length piston rod blanks and fully machined piston rods and Fluid Power Manufacturing delivers them.

Start to finish, raw material to an end product so perfect it’s been called “Industrial Jewelry”, our three companies not only epitomize excellence, but actually Redefined the Industry Standards of not just acceptability, but perfection!
