Reliable Plating and Polishing

Founded in 1955 by Joseph Bourdeau on Water Street in Bridgeport. In 1964, Reliable Plating and Polishing moved to their current location on Bishop Avenue and is the full service metal finishing shop you see today. A lot has changed since then, but not our dedication to good, old-fashioned craftsmanship and eye for detail.

We offer a huge assortment of metal coating products and technologies. Our attention to detail and fast service is why customers have been coming to Reliable Plating and Polishing for more than 60 years.

In addition to being local and convenient, we can perform some of our finishing processes with same-day, next-day, or even "while you wait*" service. We pride ourselves in working to your deadline. Our knowledgeable salespeople consult with you to understand exactly what you need and when you need it. Most of our processes involve many precise steps, so accurate communication with our customers is critical to our success.

* Only certain coating processes can be performed while you wait.
