In response to a need for an industrial chromium plating plant in the mid-south, Dale Hart and a group of investors opened Jan-Eze Plating in 1986. From a modest beginning with thirteen employees and 2500 square feet of production facilities, today Jan-Eze has grown to be a large and diversified operation covering 40,000 square feet, serving customers throughout the United States.
Our business philosophy and objectives remain the same today as when the company was founded: to bring the full potential of our employees, technology, quality and service to bear on our customers’ needs. Small, medium and large companies know they can depend on Jan-Eze to deliver the best, most cost-effective functional coatings available.

Quality Control Manager
As Quality Control Manager I develop, implement and manage quality control systems. These processes ensure consistent product that meets or exceeds established standards and customer specifications. It’s important to maintain a close working relationship with our customers and identify any potential quality issues to resolve them before processing. When customer issues do arise, we investigate and take corrective action as quickly as possible.
As Environmental/Safety Manager I audit and evaluate the equipment, facility and processes in the plant to ensure compliance with government safety, environmental regulations and industry standards. It is important to identify any potentially hazardous materials and processes related to our plating. Our team recommends and implements changes to protect and educate employees on how to prevent health problems through the use of safety training programs and personal protective equipment. We also utilize outside risk management and consulting services in this endeavor. Investigating accidents, identifying their cause and finding ways to prevent future accidents is a top priority. Jan-Eze has achieved SHARP (Safety, Health Achievement Recognition Program) from the United States Department of Labor OSHA
Jan-Eze inventory of work in progress is the property of our customers. I am responsible for ordering supplies and spare parts for the facility. I ensure accurate and timely receiving and shipping of customer parts and utilize proper warehousing procedures to account for quantities and keep product safe and protected. We package all product to specific customer specifications. It is my responsibility to ensure that parts transition to and from the plating/finishing operations while coordinating with Administrative Assistants’ order processing and billing. Once complete, I communicate with customers to advise parts are ready for shipping and ship per their instructions and desired carrier.
