The team at Scottish Galvanizers provided its services to a multi-million pound redevelopment project commissioned by American president-elect Donald Trump.
Staff were asked to step in and galvanize the replacement railings made by Morrell’s Forge Blacksmiths for part of the world-famous Turnberry Resort.
The popular golf and holiday destination, based on the Ayrshire coast, has over 100 years of history and heritage and includes the Turnberry Lighthouse, which has just been turned into two executive suites costing up to £7,000 per night as part of a £200million development of the site by Mr Trump.
Morrell’s Forge, a small family-run blacksmith near to Turnberry, made around 200 metres of new railings and balustrades for the site and asked the team at Scottish Galvanizers to hot dip galvanize the materials before they were painted and put up at the Lighthouse.
The plant’s Commercial Manager Paul Tait said: “It’s not often you get asked to be involved in a project financed by such a high-profile figure currently getting so much media attention. It was great to be part of the redevelopment and the Lighthouse looks amazing now.”
Tony Morrell from Morrell’s Forge at Turnberry added: “We are very grateful to all of the staff at Scottish Galvanizers. This contract was far bigger than anything we have previously done and an enormous undertaking for a small firm such as ours. We could not have completed it without the prompt and high quality service we received from them.”
