Joseph Ash "cement" Rugby deal
Keywords: Joseph Ash Galvanizing, Rugby Cement, Coatings, Steel
Joseph Ash Galvanizing reports that it is coating more than 2,000 tonnes of steel which will form the structural skeleton steel work for Rugby Cement's new £140 million investment (Plate 1).
Construction of the new 1.35 million tonnes per annum cement plant was commissioned in the first quarter of this year and will provide Rugby Cement with a state-of-the-art cement plant.

Joseph Ash believes that it has the longest structural bath in Europe and is the largest producer of galvanized steel in the Midlands. The galvanizing process coats the steel, protecting it from rust and, in many cases, making it maintenance free for more than 20 years. The galvanizing bath is capable of single-dipping items up to 18 metres long.
Joseph Ash Galvanizing marketing director Brian Finch said: "In an increasingly competitive marketplace we strive to develop our facilities to meet the demands of our clients. The installation of our 18-metre bath certainly played a key role in securing this contract with steel contractor William Hare. They knew without any doubt that we could fulfil their needs efficiently, cost-effectively and to the quality standards they expect."
