Plating Equipment

Plating Equipment

Since Bobby Smith first ventured into the world of plating equipment more than a quarter-century ago, Buchholz-Smith, Incorporated (BSI) has produced quality tanks, barrels, and replacement parts for the plating industry. What began as a humble one-building shop—where we meticulously approached each hand-welded project as if it could make or break our reputation—has grown into a thriving, five-building operation... where we still meticulously approach each fabrication project as if it could make or break our reputation.

Today, after purchasing the company from his father, Joey Smith leads the next generation of BSI, which remains an industry innovator. BSI forges time-tested products and lasting relationships, putting our polypropylene equipment to work for customers around the globe. Because we believe our reputation is only as solid as each product that leaves our facilities, we refuse to rest on our name or compromise our exacting approach. Starting with BSI leaves you equipped to guarantee a fine finish.
