Fort Worth, Texas-based AZZ Inc. will acquire Tennessee Galvanizing, Jasper, Tenn. Tennessee Galvanizing is a metal coating company with four operating galvanizing lines, including centrifuge, rod, conveyor and a 42-foot structural kettle.
The transaction is expected to close in the spring, pending completion of final due diligence activities. The facility will operate as AZZ Galvanizing – Chattanooga and will retain key managerial personnel and hourly employees currently employed at the facility.
“The purchase of Tennessee Galvanizing expands our network of metal coatings facilities in North America that are able to provide a broad spectrum of metal coating services – from small piece goods to large components,” said Bryan Stovall, senior vice president of AZZ Metal Coatings. “We believe that existing and potential customers served by AZZ Galvanizing – Chattanooga will benefit from AZZ’s economies of scale”
