Pumping specialist Selwood has opened a new multi-million-pound solutions centre in London as part of ongoing investment in its premises and fleet.
The centre will bring more capacity, a bigger team and an expanded offering to customers across London and the South East. It replaces and significantly expands upon Selwood’s previous branch at Charlton, which has now closed.
It’s been an annual local landmark and a highlight of the festive season for decades – and this year the giant Christmas tree outside Selwood’s Hampshire headquarters is needed more than ever.
The huge tree has lit up the neighbourhood in Chandler’s Ford every year for 67 years, and many locals say they don’t feel the celebrations have truly begun until they see it.
The tree is traditionally put up at the end of November, with its lights turned on during the evening of the last Friday of the month.
Selwood, the UK’s leading pumping solutions provider, is adding £1m worth of large submersible assets to its UK rental fleet as part of an ongoing programme of investment.
The additions this year will see 18 giant submersible pumps with motor sizes from 100kw to 250kw and flow capacities of up to 1,300 litres per second become available across Selwood’s UK-wide branch network.
At Selwood, we are always looking for ways to improve our products and provide exceptional service to our customers.
We listen carefully to feedback to understand what customers would like from us – and one topic that has been raised is the lead times for our pumps.
All our pumps are manufactured at our UK headquarters by our specialist teams to the highest quality standards. It’s what makes them world-renowned for their reliability and longevity, and of course it’s a process that takes time.
Selwood’s plant hire specialists are supporting the first phase of a new link road development led by Eastleigh Borough Council.
Work has begun on the new route, part of the ‘One Horton Heath’ development which will help ease traffic congestion at Fair Oak and Horton Heath in Hampshire.
