Grupo Fetasa Galvanisadora is the only company that we know of in Mexico that re-galvanizes. The contact person Patrick worked with was Jose Carlos Villavicencio Liera and his email is firstname.lastname@example.org The phone number for Fetasa is 01 (686) 555.9196. Jose Carlos speaks very good English and quickly responds to email. When our chain took a detour on its trip up with Castores, Jose Carlos was very helpful and contacted Castores to help us track it down. Then when the chain was finished, he arranged its ride back to La Paz and dropped it off at Castores. Paying the bill for the galvanizing was as simple as going to any Banamex (a big chain bank in Mex) and depositing the money in Fetasa's account. It took about five minutes.
Castores shipping was a very good company, too. Considering that the alternative is renting a car and driving your chain up to Mexicali yourself (we know several cruisers who have chosen this route), the $80 we spent on shipping was a steal, even though the trip took a little longer than Castores told us. They also were very professional and they track your shipment with a tracking number.
