Happy Birthday to Premier Galvanizing Corby – celebrating their 15th year!
The end of July marks the 15th anniversary of Premier Galvanizing Corby – a division of Joseph Ash Galvanizing. The plant opened its doors in 2002 to become the second plant for Premier Galvanizing, which already had a plant in Hull.
When the business opened its doors, it had 13 staff. It now has 33, with the majority living in the local community. The original management team members are still working there as well as two of the initial workforce; Daren Stevens and Stuart Tailby. Daren is the Galvanizing Manager and Stuart is the Yard Supervisor which goes to show that a career in galvanizing is a real prospect at Premier Galvanizing.
The plant is managed by Robert Mohan, the Technical and Development Director who says: “Our Corby plant is a great place to work, full of hard-working, team-spirited colleagues who strive for the best, constantly meeting the exacting demands of our loyal customer base.”
Premier Galvanizing Corby and its extensive fleet of vehicles cover customers’ galvanizing needs from London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, as well as the Midlands.
Whether a fabricator needs a small amount of steel galvanized for a gate or railings, or 100 tonnes of steel for a new building development, Premier Galvanizing Corby can help. We pride ourselves on getting it right first time, on time, every time to meet the varied needs of our customers.
Premier Galvanizing Corby has a bath size of 7.6m x 1.4m x 3.2m, with a lifting capability of 6.0 tonnes. It provides a comprehensive galvanizing service and can also arrange shot-blasting, powder coating, as well as storage, bundling and packing. With a fleet of Lorries to suit the customer needs, delivery to UK sites can be easily arranged.
Corby, in Northamptonshire is an apt place for a Galvanizing plant processing steel because of the town’s heritage. Corby was once best known for its iron and steel industry, which shaped the growth of the town and influenced all aspects of life from the turn of the 20th century until the closure of the steelworks in the 1980s.
