Humber Galvanizing is celebrating 21 years since opening its doors in March 1996 on the Citadel Trading Park in Kingston-Upon-Hull.
The company, which is also Business Club member of Hull UK City of Culture, works with customers across the region to provide specialist hot-dip galvanizing treatments to fabricated steelwork.
Tony Linsley, Sales Manager at Humber Galvanizing, explained: “We’re absolutely delighted to be marking this special anniversary in business, and in celebrating it alongside the buzz generated by the fantastic team at Hull 2017, who are working hard to shine a light on the city and showcase all that it has to offer to the rest of the UK and beyond.”
The plant has remained a part of the fabric of the city for the past two decades, having been operational at the Citadel Trading Park since its inception.
One member of staff, Mark Allen, has recently joined Wedge Group’s wider 21 Club which recognises employees who have served 21 years at the company, himself having joined the Humber team in November 1996.
Humber Galvanizing’s work can be traced across the region and the UK, including the eye-catching Lady of Shalott sculpture on the River Witham, railing restorations surrounding York’s famous city walls, as well as at the Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm.
“We are extremely proud of our roots in Humber and are looking forward to continuing to work alongside the fantastic range of businesses based here, who we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years.”
Martin Green, director of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, said: "Our first season, Made In Hull, celebrated all that is made in this great city so we are delighted that Humber Galvanizing is not only one of our partners, but is also celebrating its anniversary during our exciting year."
