The year 2021 can be assessed as a very good year for our hot-dip galvanizing division, despite the generally unfavorable and very difficult market situation. We managed to win enough contracts, most of our galvanizing plants were running at full capacity the whole year and we achieved very good results.
At the same time, we have invested in further modernization of our galvanizing plants, some of our galvanizing plants have been or are still being completely rebuilt, while elsewhere we have invested in the new equipment and technology. Here is an overview of the most significant investments in the second half of this year.
We put the new Bezdružice galvanizing plant into full operation in the last autumn. Immediately afterwards, we started the construction of a new warehouse, which will be situated on the site of the original hot-dip galvanizing plant.
A complete reconstruction of the hot-dip galvanizing plant in Moravský Písek is also in progress. At the moment, a new hall for the galvanizing plant has already been built and the technology construction has begun. The expected date of completion and commissioning of the new galvanizing plant is this spring.
In the summer, a CNG filling station was built in Humenné and we also purchased two CNG-powered forklifts for the galvanizing plant...
During the autumn, three pairs of galvanizing hoists were replaced in Prostějov.
Hustopeče - centrifugal hot dip galvanizing plant
A complete reconstruction of the galvanizing furnace was carried out at the centrifugal hot dip galvanizing plant at the end of last year, thanks to which the process of hard zinc removal from the galvanizing bath will be easier and more perfect.
In our largest Croatian galvanizing plant, we have acquired new hoists and overhead cranes in the bindery and for the galvanized material cleaning.
