OUR History

The history of Techmetals, Inc. starts with Dan Brockman and John Stickel, who while in college founded Miami Precision Chrome in 1968. After Stickel’s departure in the mid 1970’s, Brockman was joined by longtime friend Mike Franz.

As the demand for plating increased, they moved into a larger facility that would be their home for the next 11 years. Soon after, an Electroless Nickel Division emerged – Electroless Nickel of Dayton Company.

In 1982, Techmetals, Inc. was formed to merge all metal finishing operations under a single name. Since then, the company has grown from 10 – 12 employees and 80,000 square feet to the current 160,000 square foot facility – employing around 200 workers.

This growth has been attributed to our specialty areas, which include difficult jobs, large parts, specification compliance, small medical parts, aerospace and defense requirements just to name a few.
