The company was acquired by EMC in 2015.

Karas is a metal finishing company specialising in premium coatings such as gold and silver as well as providing the more traditional plating services using Zinc and Tin. They are a “solutions based” plating company that provides technical advice to customers with challenging needs.

The current MD and his team have had a free hand to “bed in” the business, post acquisition, and despite several challenges the company continues to thrive. EMC has provided support to the team, in terms of both cash and advice, as and when required to enable the business to achieve its goals.
