Selwood has made a multi-million pound investment in pump rental as it consolidates its position as a leading supplier to the water industry and a specialist in water and waste water applications.
The company has injected more than £5m into its pump rental business unit this year, with further investment planned for 2017 as it continues to expand its market-leading rental offering.
Selwood exhibited at Electra Mining Africa last week, sharing a stand with their long-standing South African distributor, Ian Dickie & Co.
This major mining exhibition attracted 800 exhibitors and offered us an opportunity to work together with our local distributor in South Africa and showcase new products in the region to thousands of visitors.
Selwood director Richard Brown has flown more than 5,000 miles on a mission to help bring clean water to one of the poorest parts of the world.
Richard, Managing Director of Selwood’s UK Pump Rental division, will dig canals, carry water and sand and help build clean water facilities during a visit to the Faratshiho district of Madagascar.
Selwood’s dedicated electrical pump repair centre, strategically placed in Liverpool, has gained the SGS Baseefa accreditation to carry out explosion-proof pump repairs.
The IECEx Certificate, issued by Baseefa, confirms that Selwood’s service facility has been independently verified to have the appropriate equipment, competent staff and procedures for repairs on equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
