Widnes Galvanising celebrates Hill & Smith landmark anniversary

It’s been 200 years since Hill & Smith PLC founded, so the team at Widnes Galvanising joined in the celebrations with good food and (thankfully) good weather.

Hill & Smith was founded by Edward Hill in 1824 and was known as Hill’s Ironworks, based in Brierley Hill in the West Midlands, UK. Widnes Galvanising was acquired by Joseph Ash Galvanizing in October 2022, who in turn joined the Hill & Smith group of companies back in 2000.

Widnes’ site celebrations involved a retro burger van arriving to the site, serving delicious gourmet burgers and topped pancakes.

The burgers were certainly very unique, with buns in all sorts of different colours. The pancakes came loaded with fruit and chocolate spread, perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Activities are also set to take place across the other Joseph Ash Galvanizing and Premier Galvanizing sites throughout the remainder of June. We can’t wait to see what the other sites have got planned, and we can’t wait to continue to be part of Hill & Smith’s incredible history!
