Fred Scott acquired a galvanizing plant in Ballard, WA.
The building was expanded and the 10’ kettle was replaced with a 22’ kettle. Fred’s son in-law, Jerry Armstrong, took over operations in the 1970s.
Our current Plant Consultant was hired for the graveyard crew. Little did he know what an integral part of the company he would be for years to come. He states “during the 1980s, most of the work was from the marine industry”.
Seattle Galvanizing took ownership of the company and quickly implemented a vision of exponential growth and outstanding service.
Plans For Expansion
In search of a larger property, and with a vision to provide consistent quality service in a timely manner, the company decided to build a new facility.
New Galvanizing Location
Operations begin in our new state-of-the-art facility in Arlington, WA, where a 45’ kettle was born to meet our customers’ needs.
Seattle Galvanizing purchased land for a corporate office as more space was needed for growth. The ownership group credits much of the success of the company to Plant Consultant and lifelong employee Ken Mahurin.
In response to feedback from our dedicated employees, we proudly unveiled a 20,000 sq ft canopy addition to our existing building. This strategic enhancement ensures our team stays protected from the elements, emphasizing our commitment to their comfort and well-being.
Here we grow again! We are happy to announce our brand-new, state of the art, 38,000 sq ft spin line facility being built in Arlington, WA. We expect to be in operation summer of 2024.
Marking a significant expansion in its service offerings, Seattle Galvanizing proudly introduces professional abrasive blasting and industrial painting services. This new addition not only broadens our expertise but also provides our clients with a comprehensive solution for their metal treatment needs, reinforcing our commitment to excellence and innovation in the industry.
