Hurricane Beryl


As you may know Houston was impacted by hurricane Beryl.

Fortunately all HTF employees are safe and well and our buildings and equipment sustained no damage.
However we are currently without power.
We are working with our utility company to find out when this will be restored and allow us to get back to work.
We appreciate your patience as we work this problem.

Rest assured, all HTF employees are ready to work around the clock once the power is restored.

Proud members of the High Tech Finishing team that gets it done.

Further Update

High Tech Finishing is pleased to announce that we re-start production today.
It has been one week since the fire that destroyed our plating line but this week has proved that the High Tech team can overcome any challenge.
Thank you to the whole team for the mammoth effort to get us back.
Work will continue for the next few weeks to restore full capacity and capability.


HTF Official Black 01

Regretfully we report that one of our buildings sustained damage following an accidental fire on Saturday. Importantly no one was hurt but it has impacted on our immediate capabilities.
We have initiated our emergency contingency plans and expect to begin some plating next week. Our capacity and capabilities will continue improve as we proceed.

We apologize to all of our customers for the inevitable delays, but rest assured the entire High Tech team is working extremely hard to get back to normal as soon as possible.
We appreciate the support and offers of help that have poured in these past few days and I promise that High Tech Finishing will become stronger from this. Whatever it takes!

A company’s excellence is defined not by the avoidance of problems, but by how it reacts, learns and improves because of those problems.

New Anodizing Capabilities

Although decorative plating is resilient, some interior components may require a more durable finish. Anodizing is a special surface treatment for aluminum components, which results in a very hard, wear-resistant surface. This is particularly useful for items such as hinges, strike-plates and thresholds.

We have used our experience with decorative plating and applied it to anodizing to achieve beautiful, consistent and enduring finishes; in four colors, clear polished, matte clear, black polished and matte black

Designers and aircraft owners are constantly looking for new offerings that balance function and aesthetics. High Tech Finishing’s new anodizing line can help you accomplish this.
