Phoenix Galvanizing began operating in September 1996. The company has since grown into one of South Africa’s largest galvanising plants and currently has the largest zinc tank in KwaZulu Natal.

The company has been associated with major hot-dip galvanizing projects, with a client list that includes Eskom, Transnet, Ethekwini Municipality, Cousins Steel, Avellini Bros, Shesha Engineering and Impact Engineering, amongst many others.

Phoenix Galvanizing has successfully undertaken the galvanising of electrical transmission lines, structural steel for bridges and buildings as well as burglar bars, boat trailers and smaller items that need hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion protection. We have also proudly completed special projects, such as steel items for the 2010 World Cup Stadiums and Ushaka Marine World’s “Phantom Ship”.

Our services are customer focused and value-adding, such as our transport service to pick from and drop off to our customers. This transport service spans Durban Central, Inland to Pietermaritzburg, South to Margate and North to Richards Bay. Phoenix Galvanizing employs a large fleet of trucks, incorporating 14 metre tri-axle trailers, 8 Tonne, 4 Tonne and 1 Tonne vehicles. With this fleet at our disposal, we have the ability to customise specific logistical solutions for our customers.

Phoenix Galvanizing offers our South Coast customers the convenience of a depot in Marburg, where they may leave their steelwork at our facility and our vehicles will safely travel to Phoenix and return after galvanizing.

We also offer advice on steel fabrication design for successful, high quality and long lasting corrosion protection. Our expertise in this area has been learnt and mastered over the last 17 years and also through our long-term association with the Hot Dip Galvanizing Association of South Africa.

Plant Tours and Technical Information sessions are available for our customers and all stakeholders alike. We regularly conduct these highly informative sessions with specifying architects employed in the construction industry, engineers in the Transmission and Distribution sector and architecture and civil engineering students.

Phoenix Galvanizing has a long-term Technical Partnership with the Durban University of Technology (DUT). The partnership offers an internship at Phoenix Galvanizing to DUT Production Management students. This has been a beneficial partnership to both parties and over the years Phoenix Galvanizing has taken on DUT interns as permanent employees.

Phoenix Galvanizing proudly offers our customers the assurance of excellent quality hot-dip galvanizing through our SABS SANS 121:2011 Certification. We are also an ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems Certified Company, assuring our customers of world-class service and communication.
