About Us

Ken Poucket

Ken Poucket is a well-recognized expert in the Electroplating Industry.

Ken Poucket is a world-renowned expert in the Electroplating Industry with 35 years of managerial and technical experience. He has become a subject matter expert in plating areas of Zinc, Zinc Nickel, Zinc Iron, Tin Zinc, Cadmium, Phosphating, Chromating, Mechanical Plating, Process Improvements and Control, Cycling, Project Managing, Sales Quoting, and Cost Analysis. His diversity in various roles throughout his expansive career in the Metal Finishing Industry give him an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry – Ken started as a lab technician, quickly advanced to Plant Manager, then reached the level of Vice President.
To further broaden his skills, he joined a large international chemical company where he led a technical support team for the entire Midwest Region of the United States. While serving various customers, he noticed a recurring theme that seemed to bother all platers—there is a great deal of “guess work” when it comes to processing and quoting. With ever-increasing customer request to provide dedicated consulting, he launched ProPlate to assist the Metal Finishing Industry in recognizing these opportunities for improvements.
