The North of England contractors has invested £1.5mto create Esh Drainage Solutions which will deliver planned and reactive trenchless drainage maintenance, repairs, and cleansing services.
More than 15 new jobs have initially been created, including operative, administrative, trainee and management roles, with that number set to rise in the coming months.
The new division will operate across the North East and Tees Valley offering the most environmentally friendly technology to offer trenchless solutions for drain repairs.
Services will include CCTV surveys, high pressure water jetting, sonar tracing, drain and sewer unblocking and cleansing, as well as UV Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, Bluelight LED lining, localised patch repairs and robotic cutting.
David Pratt, divisional director at Esh Construction, said: “At a time of growing uncertainty within the economy, it is great to welcome a full new team into Esh through the creation of 15 jobs.
“Esh Drainage Solutions will bolster our offering to clients across frameworks and internally to our group divisions, giving us the capability to self-deliver trenchless drainage solutions while building on the solid foundations we have with supply chain partners to collaboratively provide a complete approach to drainage repairs and maintenance.”
Significant investment in equipment to date has grown the division’s kit and fleet to include CCTV and vactor units, Bluelight lining system, patch lining equipment and jetting units.
Pratt added: “In the coming weeks we will add bespoke designed UV Lining and lateral cutting rigs to our fleet which will be key to offering less intrusive trenchless methods and improved customer service for our clients.”
