AZZ has opened its first powder-coating operation facility in Crowley, housing the largest duplex-coating oven in the U.S.
Headquartered in Forth Worth, AZZ provides steel fabrication services. It will open the new facility adjacent to its existing Crowley plant and use PowderGALV technology.
“Powder coating is an important strategic initiative for AZZ that expands the offerings in our metal coatings business,” AZZ Senior Vice President Tim Pendley said. “Our customers will now have additional options including broadened corrosion protection and the ability to deliver on projects with specialized color requirements.”
AZZ provides metal finishing for corrosion protection, including hot dip galvanizing to the North American steel fabrication industry.
“As the largest North American galvanizer with 41 plants, we believe powder coating can help us to expand our reach into another segment of the metal corrosion protection market allowing our customers to be even more efficient in servicing their end-user customers,” Pendley said. “We are dedicated to expand our metal corrosion capabilities, expand our addressable markets and continue to leverage our unmatched quality and superior customer service."
