Press release from Team Drainage UK:

Drainage Business Celebrates its 1st Birthday

Team Drainage UK has just celebrated its 1st birthday and its own independence day anniversary from a group of businesses.

Steve Scholes, Owner and Managing director says:
“It’s been a very difficult year since the buyout from a group. A business I thought I knew the true value of, quickly turned into a nightmare.”

However, Steven knew no matter the state, he had to fully commit himself to the project, not just for himself but his employees and family and just hope one day Lady luck would shine.

Well today is when lady luck actually shone!

Twelve months on Team Drainage UK are now in a position to accelerate growth and investment. This has been achieved by Steve introducing a business partner and Finance Director Mick Seddon. Steve says:
“Without Mick Team Drainage would probably have fallen into administration, it was actually Micks idea to call the business Team Drainage UK as he identified that we wouldn’t of been here today without having a dedicated team behind us.”

With the whole team on board this business is able to offer an honest, reliable and affordable service to all sectors.

New Exciting Opportunities for the local Community

We are always looking for new opportunities but some just seem to come knocking on your door. This was the case with the introduction of local domestic septic tank emptying.

We quickly realised that the local community was being charged an extortionate amount for such a service and so we decided to use our own method and show the local community what we could do.

We found a way that we could carry out the emptying of any size tank for at least 25% less than what people were paying.

Since the pandemic we have noticed a huge demand for this service, due to people working from home or on furlough. Today we have a dedicated team carrying out this exercise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

New Opportunities Post COVID 19.

Team Drainage have introduced a method to help developers comply with the strict pandemic and environmental regulations post COVID 19, utilising the Multi Skilled workforce.

Steve explains further:
“We decided to train all of our drainage engineers in Geo Positioning and Topographical Survey methods, meaning we can carry out various works on site without introducing more personnel. This, we believe, is a UK first. However, we have gone one step further; we are now training all of our Jetting and Vacuum engineers to carry out drainage camera surveys whilst cleansing your drainage assets.

“By Multi skilling the workforce we are able to reduce our costs, speed up delivery, comply with COVID 19 regulations plus adhere to our carbon footprint.   I’m really excited about showcasing our services locally and nationally over the coming months and years, as I believe we have Unique selling points to help local authorities save money, which can then be put towards other important matters.”

With the recent success of nationwide tenders, Team Drainage UK are again offering full time opportunities to the local community.

Having been raised in Skelmersdale, Steven is looking forward to offering employment to the local people and in turn helping the local economy get back on its feet.

Recently Team Drainage were invited to be the main shirt sponsor of Skelmersdale United FC, when approached we felt it was the right thing to do as they had also been through a difficult time of late.

The relationship between both parties has gone from strength to strength and with that we hope to increase our involvement with the club in the coming years.
