In 1962 Late Mr. J. V. Kelkar laid the foundation of Metal Coats. His quality was the sole of his hard work and this paid rich dividends and there was no looking back, metals coats started serving the automobile, luggage and watch industry.

By late sixties his son Mr. Vijay Kelkar joined him and undertook a major expansion programme, and by the seventies it was the only unit in western India doing nickel, chrome, cadmium, anodizing, silver plating, and plating on plastics.

The house of Metal Coats has very ambitious future plans, with economic liberalization the requirement and scope for quality electroplating is going to rise. As such the plating work will increase.
