Units 4B & 4C have been acquired to create a 23000ft facility which will service the needs galvanizing needs of steel fabricators throughout the UK.

A Collective Effort

Following negotiations with AWS who were acting on behalf of Marshall Construction a deal was struck on 7th October. Due to the extensive efforts from both parties the sale was completed within the month.

Huge thanks need to go to Chris Marshall for his assistance in getting the deal done so quickly.

COVID–19 (Coronavirus) Update

We have seen a rapid change in the spread of the coronavirus and the threat that it poses to everyone. Many companies have taken the understandable decision to close for the next few weeks while others offer services to sectors that need continued supplies for their operation despite the challenges this poses.

Galvanizing covers a wide range of industries and we have carried out a detailed survey of many of our customers to find out what will be needed over the coming weeks.

Consequently, we will continue operating at the present time to fulfil the needs of those that need us as part of their essential supply chain.

To enable us to operate safely, over the last two weeks we have reduced the number of personnel on site to minimise the risk and all vulnerable and non-essential personnel plus those that can work from home, have been doing so in line with the latest government guidance.

Those that continue to work are only allowed to do so if they can work while applying the strict distancing and hygiene rules that are essential to keep people safe from potential contagion. Measures include the reduction in shift numbers, staggered start and break times, regular sanitization, full guidance and information about washing and cleaning of hands and a strict 2 metre distance rule wherever possible.

Though the Galvanizing industry is very competitive, it is also a relatively small one. I want to take this opportunity to offer the best wishes of everyone in the team at GalvanizeUK to the many old colleagues and friends throughout the industry and its supply chain for the difficult weeks ahead.

If you need to contact us, you can do so through the usual channels and we will continue to offer the high level of service you have been accustomed to.

We will keep you informed of any change to our operating position in due course.
