About Philadelphia, PA

As the birthplace of independence and one of the largest cities in the United States, Philadelphia has been an important center of industry for over 200 years. Over the years, Philadelphia’s economy has been driven by shipping, railroads, defense contractors, and manufacturing.

Shipbuilding, naval defenses, and trans-Atlantic shipping continue to have a presence along the Delaware River. The port of Philadelphia is the largest freshwater port in the United States, with rail connections at the docks to allow for easy transportation across the continent. The Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, the first built in the United States, now houses pharmaceutical companies, manufacturing, and a commercial shipyard. The Navy still maintains a Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility for inactive or reserve ships.

Current industries in the Philadelphia area include medical research, IT, manufacturing, and petroleum refining. Refineries in Port Richmond, Marcus Hook, and Girard Point/Point Breeze — the largest on the Eastern seaboard — make Philadelphia a vital hub for the oil and gas industries.

K&L Plating provides the plating and finishing solutions to leading companies in each of these industries. From our shop in Lancaster, PA, we are within a two-hour drive of Philadelphia and surrounding communities. This means more reliable scheduling, faster shipping, and a quicker turnaround for your metal plating job. Call us today to get a free quote.
