Integrated Water Services (IWS) - Provides services in all aspects of clean water abstraction, distribution, analysis and treatment. In addition, through its pipeline services and M&E business unit, it repairs, maintains and renews clean water pipes principally for water utilities and the Coal Authority, but increasingly the commercial market.
IWS was formed in 2004 and has grown organically and through strategic acquisition. IWS acquired Brocol Consultants in December 2006, who had an excellent reputation in providing water hygiene services over a 17 year period and Wells Water in April 2008 who, for 10 years provided water hygiene risk assessment and service in the North West of England.
In April 2010, IWS were delighted to announce the acquisition of ION Water and Environmental Management Ltd. This strategic acquisition will strengthen the IWS water hygiene service provision within Scotland and the North East of England.
In April 2011, following an internal reorganisation within South Staffordshire Plc, IWS absorbed a sister company in the form of Tipton based Underground Pipeline Services Ltd, which has moved en-bloc to become its specialist pipelines division. This move creates an enhanced business providing a wider range of synergistic services to new and existing clients under a single, experienced senior management team, particularly strengthening the business’ position in the Midlands area, where our pipelines division is based and in the South East of England, where they are also active.
In July 2012 Greenacre Pumping Systems was acquired, this further strengthened the technical capability of the business within the South West.
In October 2013 Woodside Environmental Services was acquired providing complementary services and enhanced geographic coverage in the North West.
A significant level of organic growth has been achieved alongside these acquisitions with new offices being opened in Fleet, Crayford, Stanley, Heywood and Warrington.
IWS’s primary business objective is to establish and maintain long term working relationships with a client base that will benefit directly from the experience, knowledge and expertise within Integrated Water Services and the wider South Staffordshire Plc group.
The core services provided by IWS are delivered by utilising the experience and expertise of a directly employed resource.
IWS’s success is based upon the expertise of its staff and ability to understand the client’s requirements whilst delivering cost effective solutions through effective management. The business continues to invest in the development of staff in order to fully realise their potential and maintain an enjoyable working environment.
Integrated Water Services firmly believes that the services it provides, which are tailored to meet the specific needs of the client, are professional, cost effective and reliable.
