Have your photo taken with our commissioned Art piece, which is a Five Metre high Galvanized GAA Player as he jumps for the Ball, will he be a Dublin or Mayo player? We’ll have to wait and see.

Galco is Ireland’s largest hot dip galvanizer and has been proudly serving Irish industry for the last 50 years. With our headquarters in Dublin we have 5 galvanizing facilities strategically located across the island of Ireland. Dublin – Waterford – Cork – Galway – Draperstown N Ireland.

We are also pleased to announce the creation of more new jobs in Dublin with the re-opening of our second Bath in Dublin giving our Customers an extra 40% capacity.

Hot dip galvanizing is a tried and tested corrosion prevention system that has been used throughout the world. As you look around you or travel down the motorway you will see, signs, lampposts, electricity poles, toll plazas, power transmission lines all of which are galvanized. The same is true when travelling by rail. Galvanized steel is all around you in both urban and or rural situations and especially on farms.

By protecting infrastructure, schools, farm sheds, bridges and recreational facilities from corrosion we are actually protecting against preventable failures and additional maintenance costs.
