on behalf of Panton McLeod
One of the UK’s leading experts in the UK water sector has expanded its presence in South Wales just nine months after winning its contract with Dwr Cymru (Welsh Water).
Panton McLeod, which repairs, inspects and cleans structures used to store potable drinking water across the UK, secured a three year contract with the water firm and has relocated from its initial temporary base near Monmouth in to a larger unit in response to an increasing workload.
The new unit in the commuter town Caerphilly in South Wales will allow for Panton McLeod to enhance its range of services and cater for more staff – offering further employment opportunities in the local area.
Iain Weir, Chief Operating Officer at Panton McLeod, said: “We were delighted to have won the framework with Dwr Cymru which over the past nine months has seen the firm expand its business and service provision coverage across the UK.
“Relocating to Caerphilly strengthens our presence in the region and the excellent transport links help us deliver all of services which include inspection, cleaning and disinfection of the tanks, as well as reactive and planned repairs and refurbishments.
“Our first base in Monmouth, South East Wales met our requirements but as expected the workload involved has and will continue to increase so it was essential that we relocate to a larger space.
“As with our first, the new base will bring a number of employment opportunities to the area and we’re looking forward to expanding our team with some of the best local talent to further increase our wide skill set, in order to bring value to the client.”
