Selwood’s new London facility
By Thomas Allen03 November 2020
Pumping specialist Selwood has opened a new multi-million-pound solutions centre in Crayford, London, as part of ongoing investment in its premises and fleet.
The centre, which is accessible from the M25 London ring road, will bring more capacity, a bigger team and an expanded offering to customers across London and the South East of England.
It replaces and significantly expands upon Selwood’s previous branch at Charlton, which has now closed.
The new facility has large-capacity storage facilities, and modern offices and customer areas that are designed to comply with social distancing measures.
The expansion will allow Selwood’s London team to offer faster response times and store a larger stock of pumps, along with pipework, stoppers and accessories.
A larger yard allows for a larger vehicle fleet to be based on site, and charging points are installed for Selwood’s growing number of electric and hybrid vehicles.
The centre opens as Selwood continues to increase investment in its pump fleet, which now has 5,00 units available for rental across its UK-wide branch network.
John Lovell, Managing Director, Selwood Pump Rental Solutions, said of the new facility, “It is a major investment that enables us to build upon the outstanding service and product range we offer all our customers. It reinforces our ability to deliver on major projects such as HS2 and to serve our broad customer base, from independent contractors to major water companies.”
