As a former carpenter/builder looking for a way to give more expression to his artistic side, Michael Whipps settled on design and manufacture of intricate steel fire pits and outdoor lights and hasn’t looked back.
As you may know, Albury Galvanizing is one of the Furphy Group of companies and so we recently sent our old Furphy water tank off for restoration.
The Furphy water tank was invented by John Furphy in the early 1880s – at the time there was nothing similar around.
Albury Galvanizing has taken delivery of a new prime mover.
Shown is the new ISUZU GIGA 455, loaded for its maiden voyage with driver Matt to return galvanized product to our Griffith area customers.
The new truck is one of three prime movers in our fleet and will allow our older ISUZU to concentrate on the local area providing an increased level of service capability for customers generally.
The new vehicle purchase has provided an opportunity to enhance various safety components such as ‘separate to cabin’ tool and equipment storage, auto-manual transmission, improved driver seating ergonomics and improved front end protection.
This month and next month Tilo Schmidt, our General Manager will present the latest information about galvanizing to Wodonga TAFE second and third year metal trades apprentices.
Tilo will share his broad engineering experience and metallurgy knowledge with the apprentices.
