Two factors have combined to make ETI the "plater's plater." First, and most importantly, is our reputation among our peers for consistent quality and on-time delivery. Second, is the trend toward process specialization driven by EPA pressures on waste treatment systems. Many shops are limiting the processes they offer to make compliance less onerous.
At Epner we "bit the bullet" some years back, and installed a state-of-the-art closed loop waste treatment plan. Nothing leaves our shop. We recycle our water into a distilled condition and recover the metal that reaches our waste stream. Not only does this reduce our cost of water and waste treatment, but it permits us to feel a little better about our environmental contribution.
