Move gal­va­nizes firm to suc­cess

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily - john.kralevich@pe­ter­bor­oughto­ By JOHN KRALEVICH

A LO­CAL firm is cel­e­brat­ing its most suc­cess­ful year yet, af­ter mov­ing into brand new premises 12 months ago.

East Anglian Gal­va­niz­ing, part of Wedge Group Gal­va­niz­ing, has seen its cus­tomer base rise by 15 per cent, and its lo­cal mar­ket grow by more than 10 per cent.

The suc­cess fol­lows re­lo­ca­tion from its old city premises in Wood­ston, where it had been lo­cated for more than 60 years, to its new state-of-the-art site in Sawtry, near Peter­bor­ough.

The new fa­cil­ity houses a deeper and wider gal­va­niz­ing bath, which has led to an in­crease in ca­pac­ity, as well as in the types of work the firm is now able to process, in­clud­ing sports field fenc­ing and an­i­mal en­clo­sures.

With a num­ber of built-in green technology fea­tures, in­clud­ing an in­te­grated rain­wa­ter col­lec­tion and stor­age sys­tem, it is able to re­cy­cle large vol­umes of wa­ter into the gal­va­niz­ing process, elim­i­nat­ing “run- off” from site and re­duc­ing the use of mains wa­ter.

Mod­ern de­sign has also re­sulted in the im­prove­ment of de­liv­ery and col­lec­tion, and an en­hanced process lay­out of the plant has en­abled a more ef­fi­cient and re­source­ful pro­duc­tion line.

Sales and com­mer­cial man­ager at East Anglian Gal­va­niz­ing Sel­wyn Parrish said: “Since our move to new premises this time last year, we have seen sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments in the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment for our staff, as well as in out­put and pro­duc­tiv­ity on be­half of our cus­tomers.

“We are now able to op­er­ate 24 hours a day, en­sur­ing a quicker turn­around for cus­tomers, and a new overnight ser­vice has been in­tro­duced, which has seen our av­er­age lead times re­duce from four days to two.

“Our growth over the past 12 months has also meant that we have been able to take on four new mem­bers of staff from the lo­cal area, and we are hop­ing to un­der­take fur­ther re­cruit­ment over the com­ing months.”
