Bumper Replacements


Bumper Replacements’¬†electroplating division, Onehunga Electroplaters, specialise in copper, nickel and chrome plating. We also specialise in handpolishing and/or electropolishing of stainless steel fittings. Refer to our electropolishing section of the web site. With over 70 years in the industry, we have developed specialist expertise in the marine, furniture, and automobile parts industries. Of course we also handle, tube and general electroplating. Bumper Replacements has been a member of the Marine Industry Association since 2003.

Our Tanks are 4 meters long, which allows us to chrome plate brass boat mouldings without the need to have them cut. All brass boat fittings (cleats and anchor winches for example) are all stripped to base metal and polished to ensure a high quality, long lasting result.

Quality control measures ensure that each production run is up to our tradition of a quality standard.  

These measures are:

  • Full chemical analysis of each chemical bath once a month
  • Daily analysis of certain conditioners of each bath
  • Chemical analysis records are kept for three years
  • Training of electroplaters in quality assurance procedures
  • Comprehensive maintenance programme

Bumper replacements assisted us with the refit in 2007 of our launch “Primetime”, chrome plating hand polishing and electropolishing. All of the fittings, cleats, rails, winch were all stripped to base metal and polished. The finish is immaculate and the boat looks amazing! We are very pleased with the quality of the service given by the team at bumpers. I would highly recommend the services of Bumper replacements to anybody.
