Explanation:
tin means "cin" in slovak.
process of applying tin to a steell is "tin coating".
the place where it is done is "shop" or "department" or "division".
Hence instead of shop you could use either department or division or plant.

electrolytic tin plating plant


Explanation:
I would personally use the phrase 'tin plating' as opposed to 'tin coating'. Although, as you have pointed out, this is a division of a factory, the place where this activity is carried out can also be referred to as a 'plant', especially if it is housed in a separate building.

'Elektrolyticka' is 'electrolytic' in English.
