A Hartlepool engineering firm has started a development with one of the region’s biggest suppliers.
C&A Pumps & Engineering is working with Gentoo Group to build pumping station to service a new build site at Stonebridge, in the Neville’s Cross area of Durham.
The pumping station, which is based on the site of an old dairy, has been designed by C&A to meet the strict requirements approved by Northumbrian Water Ltd to service the 24-home development.
Managing director Alan Roberts said: “This is a landmark contract for us and hopefully the first of many.
“Although we’ve worked on such a vast range of projects across the UK, this is our first within this type of market.
“It is a pleasure working with such an esteemed housing provider in the region and has allowed us to display the efficiency and quality of our work.”
C&A Pumps has managed the civil works involved in the construction of the pumping station, employing Fred Merce Construction Ltd to undertake the works.
A spokesperson from the Gentoo Group, said: “We have been extremely pleased with the work carried out by C&A Pumps.”.
C&A Pumps launched in 2012 as a pump specialist and to install and maintain electrical and mechanical systems primarily for building firms, local authorities and managed workspaces.
But the orders have flowed in since including contracts with some of Teesside’s largest chemical firms, as well as maintenance work with golf courses, racecourses, schools, parks and community buildings.
Alan added: “Last year was a very successful period for us and we have continued to steadily grow as a company.
“We now have a full order book and are working with some of the biggest companies in the North East.
“We hope to carry on a sustained growth throughout the year and continue to build upon referrals and positive word of mouth.”
