A bright future ahead

Proudly 60 years strong and growing through a decdicated and talent customer focused team of experts in their fields.

 

We’ve been involved with significant building, infrastructure and resources projects across Sydney for decades.

FROM THE PAST TO NEW POSSIBILITIES

Galserv has a long history of supporting major manufacturing and resource projects in New South Wales. Here are a few examples: we’ve worked on Sydney Harbour Bridge modules, Sydney Boathouse, Taronga Zoo’s elephant enclosure, Sydney Metro stations, Scenic Railway, the Illawarra Fly Walk and almost everything in between. Galserv began life as Galvanising Services under the Graham Group in 1963. In 2007, the Graham Group was rebranded to NEPEAN™ Building & Infrastructure. Though our names and processes have evolved over time we’ve always stayed focused on one thing: providing the best possible service to help you bring the best out in every project.

OUR INNOVATION EVOLUTION

There’s been a lot of change in the galvanising industry since 1963. Every project benefits from our continual improvement across technical knowledge, processing techniques and onsite logistics. These innovations have enabled us to optimise our Yagoona site for large and complex projects – for example, delivering 164 tonnes of hot-dip galvanised steelwork for the world’s steepest passenger railway. Galserv has become a trusted leader for even the most demanding steel requirements, including sensitive projects like data centres and military sites.

GALSERV IN THE COMMUNITY

We’re a Sydney business through and through. We’ve been providing pro bono coating services for Sydney’s Heritage Fleet for over 25 years, and previously supported the Westmead Children’s Hospital with project work for their Burns Unit courtyard. Our team at Galserv has worked in partnership for many years with local schools and universities across training, research and development to help foster the next generation of talented people. This includes work with the not-for-profit organisation MWLP. We’re also strong supporters of the galvanising industry, being a proud founding member of the GAA (Galvanizers Association of Australia) since its inception in 1963.
