Metal Finishing Excellence:
A Commitment To Quality & Service For More Than A Century

Founded by Oscar G. Smith in 1903, Nobert Plating Co. originally specialized in the refurbishment of fine silver and gold trays, teapots and antiques for Chicago’s majestic hotels, railroads and the homes of the Gold Coast elite.

Nobert’s evolution into the industrial sector mirrored the technological advancements of the twentieth century, beginning with the silver plating of electrical power components for Boulder Dam and Argonne National Laboratory.

Today, Nobert’s largest clients include many of the world’s leading manufacturers of electrical switches, automotive components, communications equipment and electrical power components.

Oscar Smith’s legacy of superior quality continues into the twenty-first century under the leadership of his grandaughter, Diann Sickles, as President and CEO.
