Pipework firm Flotec makes the right connection in Redditch

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

With the help of property agents John Truslove, 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 focused 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 – I live in Bromsgrove and Dave is in Birmingham. It is working out well.”

Ian Parker, a director of John Truslove, said: “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.”

Washford is one of Redditch’s most popular industrial estates with easy connections to the motorway network.

John Truslove is also currently marketing Units 78 – under offer – and 80.
