EC Williams Ltd
Founded by Mr Williams in 1921 the company was established in the heart of the Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. Since then the 2,000 square metre site has been completely rebuilt to form the modern purpose-built electroplating factory that we now occupy.
Our range of plant and processes enable us to provide a wide range of services from pre production samples to full volume production conforming to O.E.M, national and international standards.
Our modern purpose-built factory is equipped to provide a wide range of services from pre production samples to full volume production conforming to O.E.M, national and international standards.
We will also arrange packing and delivery to meet your requirements. Our lorries serve the West Midlands and we have daily arrangements with couriers and haulage companies for our customers in London and nationally.
We offer a comprehensive range of plated finishes and process methods to meet the requirements of the automotive, engineering and electrical industries.

Over the years E C Williams has developed electroplating plant and techniques to optimise the plating of turned parts, fasteners and small pressings. This enables us to barrel plate these components minimising any damage to the parts while achieving the plating specification in an economic and efficient manner.
Having taken care to machine your turned parts carefully and accurately, the last thing you want is for them to be knocked about during the electroplating process. We have many and varied types of barrels and driers which enables us to choose the best process for your parts.
The danger with barrel plating pressings is that they may bend or distort during either the barrel plating process or the spin drying afterwards. By considering the rotation speed of the barrels as well as the forces incurred in the spin dryer we have been able to barrel plate pressings which traditionally were jig plated.
The main issue with electroplating of fasteners is the potential of damage to the external threads of fasteners. Once again our attention to barrel rotation speeds and the use of controllable spin driers minimises the danger of thread damage. For high tensile fasteners we offer a de-embrittlement service to compensate for any hydrogen that may have been introduced during the plating process.
