Mantank Environmental Services has introduced its new drain and sewer division following increasing demand from clients.
The business, which supplies a wide range of industrial cleaning solutions to both corporate and small businesses across the chemical and petrochemical sectors, has introduced the division which will provide cleaning and removal of waste from drains, sewers and lagoons.
Mantank has invested £1m in three new CCTV cameras that can detect blockages, and two new jet units used to remove them. The business has also recruited a new section of staff to ensure the service is delivered by fully trained personnel with plans to increase this from 12 to 20 staff in the next year.
Mick Hill, general manager at Mantank said: “Since starting the business our plan has always been to reinvest capital into new machinery, vehicles and people so that we can continue to grow, win new contracts and, most importantly, provide jobs to people in the north east region.
“And for us this investment is already paying off in terms of 12 new members of staff who have, in a very short space of time, secured 20 new contracts from both new and existing customers.
“We’re absolutely delighted with the success of the new division, which whilst we always knew would deliver, has far exceeded our initial expectations and business projections.”
The new division comes following period of growth for Mantank, which has reported increased profits year on year and increased its workforce from four to forty in the two and a half years since its formation.
The company has also recently purchased its own offices in Portrack Lane, Stockton, a move which it believes firmly seals its commitment to the North East and Teesside.
