Successful partnerships

We have a diverse range of clients - with a wide range of requirements - and all are equally important to us.

We are committed to understanding their needs in a constantly changing environment and we work to build relationships and trust - deliverying products and solutions that offer real benefits.

Developers

We are involved from the outset, advising on the right solution to all challenges in the industry. We support developers through every stage, from meeting legislative requirements, such as Sewers for Adoption and HA 104/09, to the best way to incorporate trees into their developments.

Local authorities

Our clients rely and invest in our products to help them manage their transport infrastructure efficiently and effectively,
while ensuring value for money and improvements in services. Collaborating with key stakeholders, including procurement officers, their engineers and contractors, we are committed to working together to deliver durable long-life solutions.

Utilities

We know how important it is to focus on solutions that are long-lasting and easy to install – ultimately causing minimal disruption to the network. We have an established ten-year partnership with Thames Water, delivering 1.2 million manholes across 100,000 kilometres of sewers over the past decade.

Major contractors

It is critical that the infrastructure of our major highways is robust, safe and low maintenance. We work with engineers throughout the life of the project – from discussing product options and providing samples to observing their installation onsite. We have worked with major contractors on the M60-M62 smart motorway and the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.

Distribution partners

Developing relationships with our partners is crucial for the growth and reputation of our business. Operating nationwide, our dedicated teams take a proactive approach with a focus on real-time monitoring of orders, production and stock vailability. As an innovative and flexible supplier, we offer consolidated product loads, marketing and training support.
