Galvanizers Association


Galvanizers Association (GA) has provided authoritative information and advice on hot dip galvanizing to users and potential users since it was first established in 1949. It is the representational body for the hot dip galvanizing industry in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. For many years, the company's advice and information has been used to educate and inform professionals within the construction industry. Hot dip galvanizing makes a vital contribution to the sustainable growth of the economy, protecting the huge investment provided by industry across a wide range of sectors year-on-year. GA were founder members of the RIBA CPD Providers Network and work closely with RIBA to continue to provide relevant information for specifiers across all sectors of the construction industry.

Factory Visit
Tour of Galvanizers Plants: Galvanizing Industry Open Day, 15th October 2019
Hot dip galvanizing is a highly controlled factory led process and everything from small nuts and bolts to large structural sections can be galvanized. Whether it is for agriculture, transport, utilities or the energy sector, galvanizing plays an important role within our day-to-day lives.

Galvanizing companies the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland will take part in the second Industry Open Day this Autumn, shining a light on the impressive alchemy that is hot dip galvanizing.

Various sites ranging from Elgin, Exeter, Hull and Galway in Ireland, will be opening their doors on October 15th.

You will follow the production process where steelwork is coated with zinc. Plant visits give specifiers and fabricators an opportunity to learn how to extend and improve their use of galvanizing. The tour will take approximately 2 hours and will help attendees to:

- Understand the hot dip galvanizing process, handling, cleaning and galvanizing steelwork coming into the plant
- Understand issues around quality control, sustainability and the recycling of heat and waste
- Design better structures
- Make more informed corrosion protection decisions

The coordinated site visits are aimed at giving construction industry professionals a valuable opportunity to learn how to extend and improve their use of galvanizing.

Booking a plant tour is easy, simple and quick. Complete the form here by selecting your preferred area and galvanizing plant:!open-day/book-a-tour
