Multi-million pound plant for galvanizing company
Wedge Group Galvanizingcontact supplier
New galvanizing plant
Just six months in to the project, the main initial construction work at a new £5.5m galvanizing factory in Witham has been completed.
The new plant is being built for South East Galvanizers, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing.
Initial foundation work has now been carried out, with the steel framework and cladding successfully completed.
Building work will now move on to the interior of the site, including the fit out of the company’s specialist equipment which features galvanizing furnaces and kettles.
Work on installing state-of-the-art pre-treatment and degreasing tanks, as well as a new modern 10.5 metre galvanizing bath, which will provide an increased capacity from the existing 9.5m long bath will soon begin.
Working alongside main building contractor R G Carter Colchester, South East Galvanizers has been heavily involved in the construction work, and has galvanized all the structural steel and rebar used in the foundation work itself.
Once officially up and running later this year, the new plant will also incorporate a raft of environmentally-friendly features, such as photovoltaic panels to generate electricity on-site, and a rainwater harvesting system that will reduce the need for mains supply.
