In 1971, Atlantic Hardchrome began a journey that would redefine the landscape of industrial manufacturing in Atlantic Canada. Founded by Don Ferguson, we became the region's first industrial hard chrome plating company, filling a crucial gap in the market. Over five decades, the Ferguson family, including Don's sons Paul and Glenn, has propelled Atlantic Hardchrome from a pioneering plating company to a comprehensive industrial manufacturing operation.
Our growth story is a testament to our founder's vision and the collective dedication of our skilled staff, some of whom have been with us for over 40 years. This committed team, under the leadership of President Paul Ferguson and Vice President of Operations Mark Jean, has been pivotal in our evolution. We've expanded our services beyond hard chrome plating to include CNC machining & manufacturing, conventional machining & grinding, equipment servicing, assembling, and testing, along with various plating options.
Our reach has grown significantly, from serving local needs to catering to an extensive list of industries across Atlantic Canada, Ontario, Maine, California, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Australia. Our ability to adapt and innovate – making new, complex parts as per our customers' requirements – has fueled our growth, allowing us to tackle more significant challenges and opportunities.
Having celebrated 50 years of business, we take pride in the relationships we've built – with our dedicated staff, respected suppliers, and loyal customers. These relationships are the cornerstone of our success, constantly driving us to improve and diversify our service offerings. Our evolution is a story of incremental growth, challenge, and diversification, staying true to our roots while expanding our capabilities.
