Joseph Ash Galvanizing has a keen sense of responsibility for the world around it, not only when it comes to quality of work, but also sustainability and the environment.
Our team works hard to protect the environment, through an ever-growing list of recycling activities with processes supported by an Environmental and Sustainability Policy.
For example, we support waste minimisation through the recycling of process consumables such as hydrochloric acid and flux solutions and the recovery of zinc from the waste stream, and we work hard at minimising energy usage. We also operate within a framework of a self-imposed Environmental Management System based on internationally recognised standards.
Finally, we take pride in the long life and environmental credentials of galvanizing when combined into steel building products, which have been proven to offer substantially lower lifelong environmental impact than other building materials.
