CSG Valves and Actuation, one of the UK's leading suppliers of quality civil engineering products has won their first framework contract, making them official suppliers to South East Water.

South East Water (SEW) is one of 21 regulated water supply companies in England and Wales and has 2.1 million customers Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire. SEW currently supplies 880,000 properties with water from more than 250 boreholes and wells, six river intakes and six surface reservoirs.

The South East has been identified as one of the most water stressed regions in the UK and is continually seeking new ways to protect and enhance the environment across the region, while investing to maintain and improve water quality standards and meet water leakage targets.

CSG will be supplying specialist valves for mains water distribution including large bore gate valves (350mm+) for rehabilitation and the distribution of potable water across the region through a network of over 14,000 kilometres of water mains.

CSG will be working in partnership with framework holders Clancy Docwra, to carry out essential repair and maintenance work across the network. Dave Warner, Divisional Manager for Valves and Actuation, at Castings Services Group (CSG) commented:

"This is an important milestone for CSG Valves and serves to highlight our services and products are on an equal footing with some of the major players in this market. We were awarded the contract on the basis that we are able to carry high levels of stock, demonstrate flexibility, operate quick turnaround and provide quality products that engineers trust, when and where they need them.

We also upgraded our systems to meet the criteria set out for this framework, and have introduced the Quick Response (QR) tagging system, which allows more effective product tracking, time tracking and item identification. QR codes offer much greater storage capacity for information than the traditional bar codes that have been traditionally used in our industry.

So whether Clancy Docwra is laying strategic water mains, renewing the networks or installing meters, our team will be working to support them and ensure that the work is completed as planned with as little impact on the local community as possible."

With over 30 years experience supplying UK and overseas markets, CSG Valves provides a comprehensive package of engineered solutions from the supply of ‘off-the-shelf' replacement valves to the design, supply and commissioning of bespoke valve and actuator packages for major projects. CSG Valves uses Value Engineering to analyse project requirements and provide optimum value for both initial and long-term investment.
