V&S Galvanizing, a hot-dip galvanizing service provider, has announced the acquisition of Korns Galvanizing Company, Inc.
A hot-dip zinc galvanizer of ferrous metals, Korns Galvanizing Company serves more than 15 major industrial sectors with applications including fasteners, forgings and castings, stampings, fabrications, and more. The company is based in Johnstown, PA.
“The addition of Korns allows V&S to expand both our capacity and capabilities in the region. There is strong market demand for small kettle galvanizing in the Eastern half of the United States,” said Brian Miller, V&S Galvanizing CEO. “Korns complements our current facilities and allows V&S to grow to meet the current market conditions. We are excited to close this acquisition and continue to look for more growth opportunities.”
A Voigt & Schweitzer company and part of Hill & Smith PLC, V&S Galvanizing is headquartered in Columbus, OH, with eight strategically located facilities across the US.
“We are delighted to find a great partner and new home for Korns,” said Kathleen Ortel, Korns CEO. “The greater Johnstown region has been a focus of pride for my family for more than 100 years. The future looks very promising as a global company like V&S adds Korns to its network of locations.”
