Scottish Galvanizers has praised its long-standing client, artist blacksmith P Johnson & Company, after recently being honoured the Winner’s Winner Award at the Galvanizers Association’s Galvanizing Awards.
P Johnson & Company based in Edinburgh, which previously won the 2010 Galvanizing in Detail award for the South Porch Gates project at St Michael’s Church in Linlithgow, was again recognised for its innovative use of galvanized steel by winning the special Winner’s Winner award in celebration of the event’s 20th annual awards.
Scottish Galvanizers, on behalf of P Johnson & Company, galvanized the gates which served to not only complement the aesthetics of the main Grade A listed building, but to also protect the structure from corrosion and deterioration.
Paul Tait, Customer Services Manager at Scottish Galvanizers, commented: “The Galvanizers Association is the voice of the galvanizing industry, and to have our work recognised in this way by the organisation is a fantastic accolade. We are extremely proud to have been involved in such an important project for the local community, and we’d like to congratulate P Johnson & Company on their achievement. ”
Pete Hill of P Johnson and Company, explained: “This is a fantastic achievement for us, and we’re delighted with the huge amount of positive feedback we’ve received from the local and galvanizing community alike. Over half the votes cast were for the South Porch Gates which is phenomenal, with strong competition from the likes of the Eden project in Cornwall, the Pepsi Max rollercoaster in Blackpool, and the Imperial War Museum. We’d like to say a thank you to all of those who voted for us, and Scottish Galvanizers for providing their specialist hot-dip galvanizing treatment to the finishing touches.”
