Eliquo Hydrok, the UK operation of the Eliquo Water Group GmbH; and member of the water portfolio investment company SKion GmbH; has responded to the growing market demands of the UK Water Industry by further expanding their operations across the UK.
The existing head office and main manufacturing facilities, based in Cornwall, have been expanded with the addition of a new local office and factory unit within the Indian Queen’s Industrial Estate. This new dedicated factory unit will house the Electrical control panel manufacturing and workshops, the Hire Solutions business and also the newly added Maintenance and Service division.
The past twelve months have also seen additional growth plans implemented with over £1million of investments within the fabrication facility for additional and replacement state of the art equipment; including a fibre laser cutting machine, CNC Brake Press and overhead cranes. These investments have accompanied the restructuring of the factory and offices to increase and maximise the existing production capability of the company, however, the need for further manufacturing capacity was also identified, which lead to the acquisition of a 10,000 sq ft fabrication unit in Tavistock, Devon.
These necessary expansion and growth plans were implemented to accommodate the increasing market demands for the delivery of products and solutions from within the Eliquo Hydrok extensive product portfolio. These technologies are offered throughout the Wastewater Management, Wastewater Treatment and the newly introduced Sludge Treatment Solutions, which is an important, growing element within the Eliquo Water Group range.
In the past year, the company have recruited new staff across the operation with an increase of 50% in employed personnel overall including the main sites in Cornwall, the new satellite manufacturing facility at Tavistock in Devon and the Barnsley operational centre in Yorkshire. Eliquo Hydrok have also appointed a new Area Manager, Adam Davies, to the team to cover Welsh Water, Wessex Water and South West Water; based from his office in South Wales.
Eliquo Hydrok provide water engineering solutions to all manner of complex and simple problems. The experienced in-house design teams are available to help identify and discuss the requirement and, should any of the standard products not be the perfect solution, the in-house manufacturing facility enables the production of bespoke designs to suit a particular need.
