Selwood moves to new larger pumping solutions centre in Glasgow and announces recruitment drive as it grows its Scottish operation
Pumping solutions specialist Selwood has opened a new multi-million-pound centre in Wishaw, Glasgow, as it continues to grow its operations across Scotland. The company, the UK’s leading pumping specialist for the water and construction industries, expects to create additional jobs over the next few years as it grows to meet the demands of customers, including Scottish Water.
Selwood, the UK’s leader in pump rental solutions, has created a new “stopper centre” at its London branch. The facility, part of the company’s recently opened multi-million-pound solutions centre in the capital, gives Selwood customers in the south and central UK quicker and easier access to pipe stoppers. The stoppers are inflatable, re-useable bungs used for blanking off pipework, often as part of an overpumping operation.
Selwood underlines environmental responsibility commitment through partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School
Selwood has reinforced its commitment to environmental responsibility by becoming a partner of the Supply Chain Sustainability School. The partnership underlines Selwood’s intention to use its position as the number one pump rental solutions provider in the UK as a platform to champion sustainability in the construction and water industries. The partnership gives Selwood’s teams access to thousands of online learning resources surrounding various sustainability, offsite, digital, procurement and management topics relating to the built environment.
