Kyocera America's Plating Division provides state-of-the-art gold, nickel, and palladium plating services to meet the needs of our broad customer base. We offer quick turnaround, expert engineering support, and a wide range of functional test capabilities.

Our San Diego plating division was established in 1973, in response to the need for reliable, high-quality finishing. Since then, it has grown to include automatic plating lines, a 3600 square foot manual plating line, an on-site waste treatment and water reclamation processes, and complete lab and test capabilities.

In September 2010, construction was completed on a new automatic plating line at Kyocera Mexicana in Otay Mesa, Tijuana.

Today, Kyocera America plates more than 70,000 packages per day - including 120 different package types - and is the largest west coast consumer of gold for plating applications.
