Panton McLeod has pioneered the use of underwater robots to help clean and inspect many of the UK’s network of underground storage tanks – where drinking water is kept before being sent to customers taps. The firm’s VR600 machine is used to clean debris and sediment from the floor of these structures – known as service reservoirs – while they are still active, which means that there is no disruption to customers’ water supplies.
Jim Panton is chairman of Panton McLeod, the UK’s leading expert in cleaning and disinfecting structures used to store potable drinking water across the UK. The Borders based water quality engineering firm regularly works with some of the biggest water companies across the country, including Scottish Water and Severn Trent Water.
Jim Panton accepts the sought-after ISO 9001:2000 quality standard award on behalf of Panton McLeod. The Borders-based company, which is the UK’s leading water quality engineering firm, was given the globally-recognised award following a nine month drive to improve standards and increase customer satisfaction.
