Selwood, the world’s leading manufacturer of solids handling pumps, has been recognised as one of the UK’s fastest-growing international sales stars in the 11th annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league tables.
Selwood is one of 10 new entrants to the league table, which lists the British mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales. It appears at number 90 in the 200-strong list of companies, with estimated international sales of £8.2m - a 51% growth over two years. It is the first time the company has appeared in the list.
From excavators to dumpers, telehandlers and rollers, our plant hire operation continues to grow, with a focus on versatility and relability. So far we’ve invested £13.5million into our fleet over the past three years and will spend a further £4.2million in 2020. We’re proud to have an extensive fleet available for hire across our network of branches and a team with unrivalled expertise. Our staff will provide a plant hire solution suited to your requirement and we always go the extra mile to deliver exceptional customer service.
At Selwood we are committed to minimising the impact that our operations have on the environment around us – and one way we can contribute to sustainability is through the increased use of lower-emission vehicles.
Like most organisations in the industries we work in, we recognise that change is an ongoing process and that it will take time to get to where we want to be. However, in recent years we have made great strides to a more sustainable fleet.
Selwood’s pumping solutions team stepped in to minimise disruption at a Southern Water treatment works when a failed pump needed replacement.
Specialists from Selwood’s pump rental team were called out to an outfall station at Shoreham-by-Sea, where a canister pump had developed a fault.
A replacement unit was not immediately available, and the team were also faced with the challenge of limited access to the wet well – so a fast and practical alternative was required.
Thousands of commuters use the M27 between Portsmouth and Southampton each day, and most will have experienced the congestion the route regularly suffers during peak hours.
Selwood’s pump rental and plant hire teams are proud to be involved in a major Highways England project that aims to ease this problem by upgrading the route to become a smart motorway.
