About us

Design right for galvanizing

When fabricating steel, ensure it’s designed correctly for the galvanizing process. Not only will this maximise the effectiveness of the zinc coating, but it will also prevent health and safety issues during the galvanizing process. Watch our ‘Design for galvanizing’ hints and tips video for useful design information.

Well trained staff who really care

Technical expertise and customer care are the guiding principles which have steered Joseph Ash Galvanizing for over 160 years. These remain at the core of everything we do – from the quality of work we deliver, to the additional services we provide.

Joseph Ash Galvanizing’s large capacity tanks allow me to create works of art which have dimensions over the restrictions of most normal tanks. My sculptures always require special handling and the team at Joseph Ash Telford always deliver an excellent job, ensuring a great finish to the works I’ve often taken many months to create.

Working on the Maidstone United football ground has been an exciting project, and it’s great to see the stand in use by the club’s many fans. We were also happy to work with Joseph Ash Galvanizing on the project. We have been using their metal treatment services for many years and have always been happy with the high quality and professional service they provide.

Tim Cook, REIDsteel

Joseph Ash Medway has carried out extensive coatings packages for us over the years. Because they provide an unrivalled quality of work, and a totally reliable ‘one stop shop’ service, we have avoided the sort of surface finishing problems we so often experienced when using a separate hot dip galvaniser and a separate polyester powder coater.

The cormorant sculpture has become such a symbol of Newhaven that even local festivals and theatre groups are named after it. I was really pleased that Newhaven Council commissioned a replacement as the residents of Newhaven and nearby Seaford really like it. I was also very pleased with the finish provided by Joseph Ash Galvanizing.

Christian Funnell, Sculptor

It can be nerve-wracking entrusting my creative works to others to finish, but I have always been delighted with the end results, the quick turnaround, and the friendly service offered in handling my unique projects.

Andy Scott, Sculptor

We are very pleased with the finished job and how these railings look. It is nice to do something a bit different. We have been using Joseph Ash for our galvanised and powder coated metal work for many years and the quality of their work is very good.

Lee Richardson, Metal Dynamics

We have been using Premier Galvanizing (part of Joseph Ash Galvanizing) for a very long time and could not be more happy with their service. They are always unbelievably helpful when it comes to booking and finalising our orders. As we aim to provide our customers with the most reliable service, having a trusted supplier is essential to us – thank you for having our back!

Madga Rajkowska, Steelo Ltd

This is a sizeable and valuable contract from Eurotunnel and we wanted to use the specialists at Joseph Ash Galvanizing to apply the required metal finishing to the guard rails, as we know we can trust the quality of their work.

Jonathan Showan, Showan Hydraulics

As a company it is important for us to adhere to all the required BSI standards when completing work for customers. Because of this, we choose suppliers to help us complete projects that also adhere to important standards. Joseph Ash Galvanizing is one such company and we have a great deal of confidence in their work.

Claire Rycraft, Claydon Architectural Metalwork

“To erect a full-size Roundhouse livestock building at the National Exhibition Centre was a big promotion for our company and we wanted the highest standard of galvanized finish to display our steelwork to its best advantage. Joseph Ash Galvanizing have always delivered first class galvanizing both in appearance and finish. The steelwork always arrives on time and in good condition and the delivery drivers are a pleasure to work with. It may sound like a cliche, but we really cannot recommend Joseph Ash Galvanizing highly enough.”

Geoff Simpson, Roundhouse Building Solutions

Distance no problem for football pitch goals

In the burning heat of Abu Dhabi, sits a new football training ground called ‘Soccer City’. It’s a facility opened by the Abu Dhabi Sport’s Council to provide world class football training for aspiring players. Proving that distance should never be a problem, one of our UK customers fabricated fences for the facility. Before the steel made its way to the Middle East, the Company asked Joseph Ash Bilston to hot dip galvanize it.
