Should it matter that Hot Dip Galvanizing magazine has been in print for 25 years? Are you bothered? Let’s hope you are! It should matter in that we aim to provide an interesting amalgam of the new, the old and the technical to boot.

Our built environment plays a crucial role within our daily lives and the quality, relevance and performance of what is constructed and how it is built should be of concern to us all.

We have profiled projects from across the globe including; Hawaii, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Spain, South Africa and Australia. With a circulation that extends to many of the aforementioned, we have been told that HDG is “one of the best trade magazines going”.
