Corbetts the Galvanizers is celebrating a major birthday in 2020 by pressing the button on a 300,000 pound investment drive.

Corbetts the Galvanizers, which employs 105 people at its Telford facility, will turn 160 this year and has a range of events scheduled to help it mark the major anniversary, including the installation of new flux and acid tanks that will free up capacity and speed up the galvanising process.

The management team are now setting their sights on a 7 % increase in volumes, which, if achieved, will generate an additional 1m pound of revenue for the firm.

“It has certainly been a roller coaster 12 months,” explained Sophie Williams, who was appointed as Finance Director at just 28 years-old, making her one of the youngest female directors in the sector. We have spent a lot of the last twelve months building a platform that would allow us to work through the economic issues we faced, whilst also pressing on with our desire to reinforce our position as one of the UK’s leading hot dip galvanisers.”

She continued: “In fact, when we actually look at the figures, we can see that we achieved our best ever year for new sales and a lot of this was down to our repositioning, a new brand and successfully passing our ISO 9001 quality accreditation.

“When products roll out of our facility in the heart of Shropshire, the stunning finish we create is something that usually tells us that the processes, the staff and the investment we have signed off on is working.”
