Galvanizing – It’s In The Bag

Hereford Galvanizers’ customer John Ruck Construction has fabricated and erected the steel frame of a large building for Shropshire based PDM Produce who are one of the UK’s leading lettuce and baby leaf growers and packers. 

The new structure, which measures 163 metres long by 55 metres wide and contains around 300 tonnes of galvanized steel, has been built to help PDM to increase its existing sales of bagged salads and also enables the introduction of a wide range of new mixed salad products which are sold to the UK’s leading retailers.

PDM Produce’s Operations Manager Chris Urwin was pleased with the results “our new building contains many different areas some of which will be temperature controlled and for its corrosion resistance and extended life to first maintenance we specified a hot dip galvanized finish. We also think it looks pretty good too”.
