Galvanised steel for cattle market pens
Wedge Group Galvanizingcontact supplier
Part of Wedge Group Galvanising, Merseyside Galvanising has galvanized over 120 tonnes of steel for agricultural fabrication company, Global Livestock Solutions.
The steel was used by Global Livestock Solutions for all the cattle and sheep holding pens for the North West Auctions Cattle market, currently under construction in Kendal, Cumbria.
By galvanizing the metalwork, it will be protected against all the animal waste, urine and slurry, which are highly corrosive.
Lee Booth, director of Global Livestock Solutions, said: “Merseyside Galvanizing has done a sterling job for us and we couldn’t have been happier, the quality of the galvanizing is second to none.
“We’ve been working together on this project since March, and have been sending at least two or three lorry loads of steel to be galvanized each week.
“On one occasion, on the Tuesday after the May Bank Holiday, we sent a load to be galvanized at 8.30am in the morning, which was processed and delivered to the site in Kendal by 1pm on the Wednesday, a turnaround time which in my years of experience in the industry is unsurpassed.”
Merseyside Galvanising’s commercial manager, Richard Smetham, said: “The bespoke design, high-quality production processes, and galvanizing used in the production of these pens will ensure they are protected long-term against rust and corrosion, meaning the cattle market can operate with confidence for years to come.”
Edward Howell Galvanizers, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, has partnered with the UK cold folding specialist Metsec to carry out hot-dip galvanising work for the Scottish Salmon Company.

Scottish Galvanizers, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, and CTM Fabrications have played a major role in the construction of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village.

As part of the redevelopment of the South Lakes Wild Animal Park in Cumbria, a number of steelwork structures and components for new building frames have been hot dip galvanized by Pillar Wedge. The company galvanized frames for new lion, leopard, hippo and flamingo enclosures as well as a new free flight area and entrance. Pillar Wedge is Wedge Group Galvanizing’s Heywood-based plant.
Over 25 tonnes of steel have been hot dip galvanized by Newport Galvanizers, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, as part of the Cardiff City Football Club extension project. The treatment has been applied to the extra seats to ensure they are protected from the elements and corrosion and to reduce the need for maintenance. Newport Galvanizers worked alongside IPL Structural Services to complete the project.
