Member News

One of the UK’s longest established hot dip galvanisers has secured nearly £300,000 of new business.

Corbetts the Galvanizers, which employs 105 people at its base in Halesfield, Telford, has won contracts to supply customers involved in producing security fencing, street lighting, cable management systems and agricultural trailers.

The business is currently looking to head towards £12m of annual sales.

Finance director Sophie Williams said: "2019 promised to be an exciting year for our business and it’s certainly living up to its billing with some important new wins and the potential for increased volumes for the rest of the next six months.

"This is just part of the story. In addition to the new approach, we are also working towards our ISO 9001 quality accreditation, which will help us increase efficiencies whilst also putting us in pole position for new opportunities.

"For example, securing this standard will definitely open up tenders for work with HS2 and the new nuclear power reactors being built at Hinkley Point, both projects that will involve a significant amount of galvanised parts."
