We’re celebrating our milestone 75th birthday this year with a #75for75 campaign, and people across Selwood’s branches and offices have already started fundraising towards our target of £75,000. The money raised will be going to charities picked by our local teams.

But here's a little bit more about the charities we are supporting and the activities we are planning.
Selwood, the UK’s leading pump rental solutions provider, has increased its submersible pump capability with an investment in flotation devices.
The significant investment adds a modular flotation system which increases Selwood’s capability to position submersibles and pipework across bodies of water such as lakes and lagoons.
The solution makes pumps visible and easy to identify on the water, is quick to assemble and disassemble, and can be set up flexibly to enable use with a range of pipeline lengths and pump weights from 160kg to 600kg.
We’re bringing £4.5million of new equipment into our branches during 2021 as we continue to invest heavily in our plant hire fleet.
First to be delivered are our first batch of Wacker Neuson Dual View dumpers (pictured), which are to be based at our Bristol branch. These have a swivel seat which can turn 180 degrees, giving the operator a perfect view at all times during transportation, loading and unloading.
At Selwood, we love a challenge – and we’ve set ourselves an ambitious one to mark our 75th anniversary this year.
Our exceptional people in pump solutions and plant hire branches around the UK will be pulling together with the aim of raising £75,000 for charity through a range of events and activities.
When Selwood was founded in 1946, Britain was rebuilding itself in the aftermath of the Second World War. Now, in 2021, the country is facing the challenge of recovering from the social and economic impacts of the pandemic.
Selwood’s pump rental vehicle fleet has been upgraded with the addition of six new Daf CF trucks. The trucks are compliant with Euro-6 emissions regulations, reflecting our commitment to investing in our fleet and minimising the impact of our operations on the environment.
