Additional services

At Widnes Galvanising we provide a range of additional services to make your lives easier, such as collections and deliveries, bundling, packing, and labelling of all steelworks, and on-site storage.

Collection and delivery

Wherever you are, or wherever the end destination for your fabrications is, we can transport them for you using our large fleet of specially equipped lorries, including articulated, rigid and Hi-ab craned vehicles.

Our collection and delivery service is crucial in trying to make life as easy as possible for customers.

Additional paperwork

If you need additional copies of paperwork, such as duplicate delivery notes, invoices, or Certificates of Conformity etc. we can help.

Bundling, packing and labelling of steelwork

We will bundle, pack and label your steel at your request. Let us know what your requirements are, especially if you would like us to deliver your items to the end user or get them ready for export or containerisation.

Certificates of conformity can be issued upon request and all work is carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 1461.

Passivation post galvanising

After hot dip galvanising takes place, items (on request) are passivated to help reduce the effects of wet storage stain. This also helps cool the materials so they can be handled safely.

Passivation is a chemical process that forms a thin transparent metal oxide coating onto the hot dip galvanised surface.

We’re proud to have developed our own environmentally friendly, non-Chrome VI passivation process which is a big step forward for the industry.

On site storage
Across the Joseph Ash Group – especially at our larger plants (for example Chesterfield) – we have ample space for storage. Get in touch for more details.

Full technical support

If you have any questions about treating metals or our processes, our Technical Support team is always on hand to help.
