Philpots advertise in most classic magazines.
They mainly do hydraulic rams, I think.

The basic difference is that decorative plating of whatever material is thin, and not a controlled thickness (in engineering terms) Whereas pitted forks are ground down and rebuilt with a chrome finish that will take the wear and turn out to an exact size.
