Highland was formed in 1978 to provide a galvanizing service to the north of Scotland. Operating under the name Highland Galvanizers, the company developed a reputation for quality and reliability of service, and grew until it was servicing customers all over Scotland. In order to provide a better service, in 2002 a second plant was opened in Cumbernauld operating under the name of Highland Colour Coaters, thus introducing a quality means of having colour on galvanized steel.
Developing this process extensively, the company now offers its unique Colourgalv process to those who want both decorative and corrosion protective coatings on all manner of metalwork. Highland is a privately owned Scottish limited company.
Highland are currently working with the School of Engineering & Built Environment at Glasgow Caledonian University to reveal knowledge about the phenomenon known as “gassing” and hence optimise production yield, quality and scope in powdercoating on galvanized steel.
This project is ongoing and being supported by the West of Scotland KTP Centre.
