AGA Recognizes Galvan Industries With Two Awards For Hot-Dip Galvanizing Excellence

Harrisburg, NC -- For the fourth time in five years, the American Galvanizers Association (AGA) has recognized the work of Galvan Industries by presenting the firm with a coveted Hot-Dip Galvanizing Excellence Award in two categories.

In the 2008 competition, the AGA presented just 17 total awards in 14 categories. Award-winners represent the finest achievements in the use of hot-dip galvanizing in project designs and concepts. Entry is open to galvanizers, engineers, architects, contractors, fabricators and others.

In the Industrial category, the AGA honored Galvan for its work on a new $125 million National Gypsum wallboard manufacturing plant in Mount Holly, NC. To meet the plant's fast-track schedule, Galvan hot-dipped nearly 3,500 tons of steel beams, channel, angels, plates, connection details, roof trusses, joists, girts and purlins. Fast turnaround kept the job on schedule. Galvan received shipments of material to be galvanized regularly throughout project. Work was completed on each shipment within seven days.

Aero Solutions

In the Electrical, Utility and Communication category, Galvan provided special-purpose galvanized channel that Aero Solutions used in installation of its Pole-Max products at tower sites across North America. The Pole-Max offers cell phone companies the ability to add multiple antennas onto existing towers — many of them single-pole configurations. Galvanizing the reinforcing channel ensures it — like the existing pole — will resist corrosion and withstand the elements for generations to come.
