On city map for tax breaks. There are 6 platers here in town (that I know of) more south of here in mississippi. We are not a rust belt area- and 6. Only one does one off work, and it has to be special enough for them to even price that. One south of here got Mississippi tax breaks (welfare for businesses) to open in new building- chrome plating fishing lure parts that are made in India. I would hope someone in the business has experience. Restaurants to convenience stores all have skills.Most absurd business to get in these days.
Absolutely your going to be on the radar of the city as soon as you even think of starting a plating business. and their going to be up your arse from day one
The only person who could possible make it work would be somebody who had extensive experience in plating, otherwise forget about it
Hard chrome cams are plated in a lean two by a creek.... far from under the radar operation.
