In a move sure to strengthen the unique ‘Rain-to-Drain’ position of Alumasc Group plc‘s Water Management division, it has finalised the acquisition of Essex-based drainage specialist, Wade International.
Alumasc Water Management Divisional Managing Director, Steve Durdant-Hollamby, commented on how Wade has created a strong brand based on the design excellence and high quality manufacture of its products.
“Its strategic focus aligns perfectly with our own and will allow us greater scope and capacity to invest in and develop the next generation of drainage systems that will define new standards in performance, durability and value,” said Steve.
Based in Halstead, Essex, Wade has a history reaching more than 50 years. Working with a range of metals tailored to particular specifications, its product portfolio features linear drainage channels, floor gullies and grease converters.
Its products have featured in the UK and abroad, in projects such as The British Library and Hong Kong’s Chep Lap Kok Airport.
Wade joins the quintet of business units already in Alumasc Water Management Solutions (AWMS). Those being Skyline, Alumasc Rainwater, Harmer Building Drainage, Gatic Civil Drainage and Gatic Access Covers.
Steve Durdant-Hollamby adds: “Effective water management requires a deep understanding of every process across the water management chain – this lies at the heart of our Rain to Drain proposition and provides the foundation for our research and development programmes.
“The considerable expertise throughout the Wade team will be a vital asset at this key time for AWMS and for our sector as we meet the challenges of water resilience and climate change.”
