The Newcastle ACA branch had a site tour of Amorgalv as its first event for 2018, with 20 members attending. Wayne Sharman, the General Manager of Armorgalv, gave us an understanding of the Armorgalv process and the differences to hot dip galvanising, and the different applications that Armorgalv may be used for.
We then had a tour of the plant to see how it works and some of the treated components.
AGM and Dinner at the Hexham Bowling Club
Then on to our AGM dinner at Hexham Bowling club (which has the iconic “Ozzie the Mozzie” sign) and were treated to a wonderful meal. The new committee was formed, with Igor Chavez announced as the new branch President.
