AZZ incorporated Galvanizing Services Segment Receives Recognition for Excellence in Galvanizing

Published on 2006-03-29. Author : SpecialChem

FORT WORTH, Texas -- AZZ incorporated (NYSE: AZZ - News), a manufacturer of electrical products and a provider of galvanizing services announced that the American Galvanizers Association, a leading galvanizing industry trade association, has again recognized the AZZ's Galvanizing Services Segment for the excellence and innovation in the use of Hot Dip Galvanizing for project design and concept. The Segment was awarded first place in two of the twelve categories.

AZZ's Crowley galvanizing facility captured both of the awards. First in the "Transportation" category -- the Park Air Express project featured a full-service modern airport parking facility serving the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. As the parking facility is in use 24 hours, seven days a week, the owner desired an aesthetically appealing facility that required little to no maintenance. The hot-dip galvanizing process offered both corrosion protection and an aesthetic durable design. W&W Steel in Lubbock, Texas was the fabricator.

Crowley also won the "Food and Agriculture" category with Dairy Production Systems in Raymond, Mississippi. The 1,400-cow dairy required a durable, corrosion resistant system for waste disposal. The Static Screen Separator separates waste for recycling as fertilizer or for compost use. The entire structure, including tower assembly, flush valves, stairs, framework, landing, and handrails were hot-dip galvanized. AgPro, Inc. in Paris, Texas was the fabricator.
