Why JayGe Electroplating Has Depended on Scotch-Brite™ Abrasives Since 1976

Dominic Lastoria is part of a proud line of metal finishing experts that spans generations. His family business, JayGe Electroplating in Laval, Quebec, is one of North America’s largest and most diverse surface finishers.

Since 1976, JayGe Electroplating has been a market leader known for their fine quality and broad capabilities.

So which products do they trust with their 40-year legacy? 3M™ Scotch-Brite™ Abrasives.

Creating Quality and Consistency 100 Different Ways

Stainless steel, chrome, copper, brass: there’s little JayGe Electroplating can’t do.

Dominic and his family employ over 100 finishing experts, who handcraft the finest metals 24-hours a day. Together, they can produce more than 100 different specialized finishes.

At the heart of the operation is their polishing department. With 18 buffing stations and 10 finishing tables, it’s one of the largest in the industry.

But with all of the variety it can be hard to keep things consistent. As the VP of Operations, Dominic knows this all too well. He’s not only responsible for making sure each job is delivered on-time and on-budget, but also that every workpiece is finished with the consistency and high quality his customers expect.

That’s why he depends on Scotch-Brite™ Abrasives.
