Local family business Celebrates 50 years

Pollards Galvanizing was founded by Ron Pollard in 1966 in the industrial suburb of Bungalow, Cairns. From day one, the mission was to “treat everyone like family” whilst providing a service of the highest quality. Some 20 years later moved to Kenny Street, Portsmith where the APG offices still sit today. They expanded the Galvanizing component to Townsville in 2010, And changed the name to Australian Professional Galvanizing (APG) streamlining the process of operations and expanding their reach from Rockhampton to Cairns and inland to Mt Isa.

Stephen Pollard CEO of APG today, “Our decision to expand our premises and move the Galvanizing component to Townsville was our commitment to bring our quality, customer-first mindset to more FNQ buying customers. Our quality management systems and lean manufacturing disciplines within our culture, help bring the best possible prices to our customers so we can continue in the business of galvanizing for another 50 years!”

We have continued to grow and our workmanship meets the minimum of AS/NZS 4680/2006 quality standard. We are also members of the Galvanizers Association of Australian giving our customers further assurances.
