Dragon protection for Phoenix Forge

Take a look at these amazing dragon sculptures! They were recently hot dip galvanized at our Joseph Ash Bridgend plant, for Phoenix Forge.

The dragon in the top photo is made from over 4000 individual scales each painstakingly welded to an armature, giving the dragon a life of its own. It took a little over five weeks to construct.

We’ve proudly galvanized a number of Phoenix Forge dragons over the years and it’s always a pleasure to help protect these wonderful works of art.

It’s fun to see these cheeky creatures around our plant too!

Thanks for sending them our way Phoenix Forge. We can’t wait to do some more.
