At latitude 42.10° N and longitude 102.87° W sits the small community of Alliance, Nebraska, where winter temperatures can dip below -25°F with wind chill factors at times falling well below -50°F. The words dry, cold and formidable are an accurate description for winter in this part of the country. This is not the kind of place you expect to grow some of the best citrus fruits in the country, but that’s exactly what’s happening in Alliance.
Texas High School Football is a sensory experience—the sight of Friday Night Lights, the roar of excited fans, the taste of concession stand popcorn that somehow tastes better when it’s served in a paper bag… and maybe even a little better when it’s eaten in a brand new, modern stadium.
AZZ Precoat Metals Invests $110 Million in New Manufacturing Facility in Washington, MO, Creating Jobs and Boosting Economic Growth

Ski resorts are a hub of winter sports and outdoor recreational activities, attracting thousands of visitors every year. To withstand the harsh winter conditions and ensure the safety and longevity of their infrastructure, ski resorts must invest in durable and corrosion-resistant solutions such as hot-dip galvanizing.
The southeastern United States, with its picturesque coastal landscapes and vibrant industrial hubs, faces a unique challenge: corrosion. The region’s high humidity, frequent rainfall, and proximity to the ocean make it a prime breeding ground for rust and deterioration. However, there is a formidable solution that has proven its mettle time and time again – hot-dip galvanizing.
American Galvanizers Association Excellence Awards: Hippo Hopper Self Dumpsters (Original Equipment Manufacturing)
“AZZ Galvanizing – Houston West” helped an innovative waste solutions manufacturer expand its rugged and durable product line and took home another AGA Excellence Award for AZZ in the process.
“AZZ – Kansas City” won the Civic Contribution award with “Pollinator Pavilion”. Designed and constructed by students at the University of Kansas School of Architecture, this project stands as an important component of a children’s museum, therefore protecting the steel from corrosion in reach of children was a major safety priority.
Whether used in industrial settings, commercial buildings, or public infrastructure projects, metal gratings need to withstand a lot of wear and tear over time. Without proper protection, metal gratings can become corroded, weakened, and unsafe. That’s where hot dip galvanizing comes in.

Best design practice for corrosion protection suggests to avoid dissimilar metals in contact whenever possible. Zinc, used to coat hot-dip galvanized fasteners, sacrifices itself to protect nearly every other metal, diminishing its longevity. Therefore, to enhance corrosion protection, hot-dip galvanized fasteners are recommended for galvanized structural assemblies.
The International Fastener Expo (IFE) is the largest B2B expo for fasteners, tooling, and machinery in North America. Since 1981, the event has brought together the manufacturers and master distributors of fasteners, precision formed parts, fastener machinery & tooling and other related products and services with distributors and sales agents in the distribution chain.

Imagine flying miles above the ground and traveling at speeds of upwards of 500 miles per hour. Now imagine the parts that have to sustain these types of conditions, from extreme heat to extreme cold to the harshest storms. For these exact reasons, there are standards in place to ensure these parts are suited to maintain integrity under these rigorous conditions.
North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event heads to Chicago and McCormick Place, September 13-16, 2021.
One of zinc’s greatest properties is its ability to protect steel from corrosion. For decades, zinc has played an integral role in safeguarding the core of our nation’s infrastructure—from the largest transmission towers to the most critical bridge and highway assets. Let’s learn a bit about the phenomenon of corrosion and the dual protection provided by the element.
The anodizing process provides effective corrosion protection – and maintains a colorful history.
All commonly practiced welding and cutting techniques can be used on galvanized steel (see American Welding Society’s [AWS] specification D – 19.0, Welding Zinc-Coated Steel). Welding on galvanized steel is usually necessary if the final structure is too large to be dipped in a galvanizing bath or for structures that must be welded in the field.
They’re a familiar sight – they line city blocks and country roads, carrying powerlines and serving utilities. Utility poles come in a variety of materials and designs, but what material actually provides the best combination of performance, cost, and environmental impact reduction?
