Sawtry-based East Anglian Galvanizing has been called upon to lend a helping hand in protecting some of Her Majesty The Queen’s horses in a project that has seen the construction of 90 new stables and stalls.
The company, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, provided its hot dip galvanizing treatment to steel supplied by show and event specialists, LH Woodhouse, for use in the build of temporary stabling for The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery.
The project involved the design and installation of stables at Wellington Barracks in central London, for use by The King’s Troop to house approximately 90 of its horses when making ceremonial appearances at nearby venues including Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace.
Peter Cook, General Manager at LH Woodhouse, said: “This was a fantastic project to be involved in, and one which required a great deal of knowledge and technical expertise due to the limited space available in the barracks. We worked closely with personnel from The King’s Troop and the team at East Anglian Galvanizing to ensure that the project was completed on time and to the exact specification, and we’re delighted with the result.”
Selwyn Parrish, Sales Manager at East Anglian Galvanizing, explained: “Due to the nature of this prestigious project, it was vital that the stables were made to be as durable and long-lasting as possible. Having the steelwork galvanized will ensure that it is protected for many years to come and also ensure that it’s highly resilient to rust and corrosion.”
