  • A skeleton staff will operate at the depot as staff home work where possible
  • Staff will remain available to deliver and collect standpipes as required
  • If you wish to off hire at the depot please ring in advance so that we can ensure we are available
  • Working hours at the depot will change to 7.30- 4.00pm"

Covid 19: Risk Assessment Supporting Documents



Water Services has joined forces with Vector Technology Group to distribute telemetry-based water products and software into the UK and Europe.

The joint venture has led to the creation of a new company called Vectora Europe. Water Services will manufacture and distribute VTG products across Europe respectively, with direction from VTG’s headquarters in Sao Paulo.

“This is an exciting time for our business. Brazil is leading the way in software technology and we’re delighted to take the responsibility of delivering VTG’s services across Europe. Much of VTG’s technology-based products are not yet available in this part of the world.”
