A PIPEWORK company is pumped up for extra business after finding a new home in Worcestershire.

Flotec Site Services Ltd has moved from shared premises in Oldbury to 77 Heming Road on the Washford Industrial Estate.

The firm, run by directors John Gardener and David Brueton, has taken 1,666 sq ft on a three-year lease.

It will be the company’s headquarters and fabrication shop.

Currently celebrating 20 years in business, work is focussed on the gas, steam, thermal oil and compressed air sectors.

End user clients include Babcock Wanson and cement group Cemex.

Over the years, Flotec Site Services has carried out installations in many parts of the world including North America, Europe and the Far East.

Mr Gardener said: “We chose Redditch because of the communications and ease of travel. It is working out well.”

Ian Parker, a director of John Truslove which helped the firm make the move, added: “Flotec is the sort of gritty industrial business which is so much a part of Redditch.

“There are many complementary concerns in the town and I am sure Flotec already feels at home.”
