12,000 m² area for state-of-the-art finishing.
We guarantee our customers unbeatable performance in service, quality and delivery time. Our equipment park serves the needs around all requirements of surface finishing, from belt (reel-to-reel), drum (bulked material)and rack (rack technology) finishing to our self-developed Metoba selective technology or special processes such as basket technology or vibro-robot (plating in vibrobot) finishing.
Always up to date, but not neglecting proven traditions - according to this principle, METOBA has developed in more than 60 years from its beginnings as a craftsman to a highly modern industrial company which, as a partner of global companies, also meets the high, exclusive requirements of galvanic finishing (surface finishing technology/electroplating) and surface treatment. Our family business was founded in 1955 in Lüdenscheid by the master electroplater and metal grinder Heinrich Hering. Later his son Klaus Hering together with his wife Eveline Hering took over the company and expanded it to its present size and importance in more than three decades.
With an unbeatably diverse finishing program (treatment program) and the corresponding competence in consulting and execution, the third generation with a staff of 110 faces all the tasks of our customers with team spirit and high motivation. And "refining to perfection"(plating in perfection) is not a slogan, but the demand we place on our daily work. We are always looking for ways to continuously improve the Metoba quality promise for our customers.
We invite you to learn more about us and hope that you will find the right partner for your surface in us.
Quality assurance plays an important role in the company. The high quality level of the "products" is documented by external recognitions such as the certification of our QM system according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. Constantly increasing product requirements require the reliable assurance of a high, constant quality. Our laboratory continuously monitors all process parameters required for optimum operation of the treatment baths. Deviations are detected immediately and corrective measures are implemented promptly. By means of intermediate and final tests, our quality assurance department checks and documents the coating thicknesses, solderability, corrosion behaviour and wear properties of the finished articles.
The exact inspection of layer thicknesses according to the X-ray fluorescence method, combined with networked computer control, allows targeted access to article-related and quality-relevant characteristics of the goods in every important phase of order processing.
Galvanic pioneers in
The demand for a sustainable economy has long ceased to be a simple buzzword. All sides are making demands on companies for environmentally sound management. In 1995, we were one of the first companies in the industry to decide to introduce an environmental management system in order to meet our responsibility for the environment.
As part of our participation in the pilot project “Environmental Management in Companies in the Electroplating and Surface Technology Sector – Industry Concept for the Successful Implementation of the EC Eco-Audit Regulation”, which was sponsored by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, we established an environmental management system which was validated for the first time by an independent environmental expert in May 1999.
Dr.-Ing. N. Hiller (approval no. D-V-0021), Intechnica Cert GmbH (approval no. D-V-0279), Ostendstraße 181, 90482 Nuremberg was commissioned as the environmental verifier/organisation.
