However, now to strengthen On-Time Delivery with improved quality and reduced lead times; Eigen becomes the single source strategic supplier to their customers. The company is all set with in-house electroplating facility. In the first phase it is rack and barrel plating, and in the second phase, it would be a reel to reel electroplating.
