CENTENNIAL, CO – The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing Awards. More than 100 projects were submitted representing the versatility of hot-dip galvanizing. All submissions were judged online by a panel of architects and engineers and are now featured in the AGA Project Gallery. (galvanizeit.org/project-gallery)

This year’s winners highlight the vast array of uses for hot-dip galvanizing, with many taking advantage of the utilitarian coating, while others utilize the coating in a more whimsical fashion. The highest honor, designated Most Distinguished, was given to the Lazy Magnolia Brewery in Kiln, Mississippi.  Lazy Magnolia is dedicated to providing the best possible products, and selecting the most cost-effective corrosion protection, hot-dip galvanizing, just made sense.  The owners used ingenuity in the design of the building, ensuring enough height for the brew house and room for additional equipment as the business expanded.  Hot-dip galvanized steel, which is showcased throughout the brewery  was the right product for this growing business in the south.
