Metaltreat has played a role in helping one of the UK’s biggest shopping centres ensure Santa has the perfect place to meet visiting youngsters.
The Bradford plant has partnered with fellow Yorkshire-based firms, long-standing client G & D Enterprises Ltd and KD Decoratives Ltd to help create a special Santa’s grotto, which has been installed at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol.
Santa’s Enchanted Ice Castle is part of The Mall at Cribbs Causeway’s annual Winter Wonderland, which includes a 1,000m2 ice rink, and is set to welcome thousands of children and parents in the lead up to Christmas. Metaltreat Limited has provided its specialist hot-dip galvanizing treatment to a number of steel modules, each weighing between 1.5 and 5 tonnes. The modules were fabricated at G & D Enterprises’ workshop, and once KD Decoratives had added decoration, the structure was transported to Bristol and set-up on site.
Iain McBeath, Commercial Manager at Metaltreat Limited, commented: “We are delighted to be involved in a project that that is slightly different to the usual work we undertake, but will also provide so many children with enjoyment this festive season. It is always a real pleasure to work with G & D Enterprises Ltd who regularly produce bespoke steel structures.”
Greg Collier, Managing Director of G & D Enterprises Ltd, a Huddersfield-based bespoke sheet metal fabricating company, said: “We have called upon Metaltreat for a number of projects as they always provide a fast and reliable service. Hot dip galvanizing our steel ensures that it is protected against rust and corrosion, which enables us to guarantee its longevity to our customers.”
