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.
The facility at Crayford has easy access from the M25. It is mainly a new build with large- capacity storage facilities, and modern offices and customer areas that are designed to comply with social distancing measures.
The expansion will allow Selwood’s London team to offer faster response times and store a hugely-increased stock of pumps – including those with more environmentally-friendly Tier 5 engines – along with pipework, stoppers and accessories.
A larger yard allows for a larger vehicle fleet to be based on site, and charging points are installed for Selwood’s growing number of electric and hybrid vehicles.
The centre opens as Selwood continues to make large investments in its pump fleet, which recently hit a milestone with 5,000 pump units available for rental across its UK-wide branch network.
John Lovell, Managing Director, Selwood Pump Rental Solutions, said: “The opening of our new London centre underlines Selwood’s reputation as the leading pumping solutions company in London, the South East, and across the UK.
“It is a major investment that enables us to build upon the outstanding service and product range we offer all our customers. It reinforces our ability to deliver on major projects such as HS2 and to serve our broad customer base, from independent contractors to major water companies.
“We are very proud of what we have achieved here and are looking forward to welcoming customers to Selwood London.”
