About Us

Corbetts the Galvanizers was founded in 1860 by Samuel Corbett, originally operating as an iron merchants and agricultural engineering company. In the early 20th Century, Corbetts began manufacturing galvanized iron tanks and soon realised that galvanising was something it was rather good at; the rest is history as they say.

We are now the largest independent galvanizer in the UK, based centrally in Telford, Shropshire at our purpose-built facility, meaning that our extensive fleet can reach anywhere in the country with the minimum of fuss.

Over the years, we have built up an excellent reputation for developing a partnering approach with our customers, allowing us to provide them with the best solutions to their galvanizing needs. After all, with more than a hundred and sixty years in the business, our knowledge of galvanizing is second to none.

Despite our longevity, we do not rest on our laurels and have an extensive staff training, investment in both fleet and staff, and development programmes in place, ensuring that we continue to be amongst the best at what we do in the industry.

The provision of excellent customer service is everything to us and we regularly seek feedback on our performance from our clients to ensure that we maintain the high standards to which they have become accustomed over the many years of galvanizing.

Our clients include a wide range of international engineering, manufacturing and engineering businesses throughout the UK.
