Additional services

We make galvanizing easy

At Joseph Ash, we want to make our customers’ lives easier. We do this by providing a range of useful additional services which include:

Joseph Ash delivery trucks

Collection and delivery

Wherever you are, or wherever the end destination for your fabrications, Joseph Ash can transport them for you, using our large fleet of specially equipped lorries, including articulated, rigid and Hi-ab craned vehicles.

The ability to collect and deliver steel from you is very important to us as we like to make life as easy as possible for customers.

Bundling, packing and labelling of steel

Joseph Ash Galvanizing will bundle, pack and label your steel at your request. Let us know what your requirements are, especially if you would like us to deliver your items to the end user or get them ready for export or containerisation.

Certificates of conformity can be issued upon request and all work is carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 1461.

Passivation post galvanizing

After hot dip galvanizing has taken place, items (on request) are passivated to help reduce the effects of wet storage stain and helps cool the materials so they can be handled safely.

Passivation is a chemical process that forms a thin transparent metal oxide coating onto the hot dip galvanized surface.

Our Widnes Galvanising site has launched a brand-new environmentally friendly passivation process as part of our commitment to a sustainable future.

On-site storage

At our larger plants we have space to house up to 100 trailers. You can also use the space to trial erect fabrications before taking them off-site and delivering them to the end user.

We also provide overnight facilities and changing facilities for truck drivers, as well as an extra crane gantry which gives you the ability to load your own containers.

At some of our plants we also have offices and telecoms available for the use of customers.

Check the availability of facilities at each plant before arriving
