Om Nordic Galvanizers

Foreninge af Danske Varmforzinkere (FDV) har eksisteret siden 1955. I 2005 blev foreningen medlem af den nordiske brancheorganisation, Nordic Galvanizers, hvorfra alle nummererede virksomheder drives.

Nordic Galvanizers er en sammenslutning af nordiske varmforzinkningsvirksomheder. Foreningens formål er at fremme varmforzinkningens tekniske udvikling, samt medvirke til øget anvendelse af varmforzinket stål.

Nordic Galvanizers udfører forskning og udvikling, arbejder med miljøspørgsmål og uddannelse, samt overvåger branchen internationalt.
