Pump Supplies, the owner and operator of the largest hire fleet of electric submersible pumps and accessories in the UK, has appointed experienced operations manager Simon Wright as Managing Director.

Simon, who will work closely with company Directors Andrew John and Barry Jones, has been employed in the construction and utilities sector for almost 25 years. He joins from Imtech where he spent the last three years in a senior operations manager role on a range of potable water and sewerage projects. Most recently he had responsibility for the mechanical, electrical and process design on United Utilities’ flagship AMP 6 project, the £170 million Davyhulme wastewater treatment works upgrade.

Prior to that he ran his own national utilities infrastructure business and was a Senior Project Manager at Bovis Lend Lease, where he helped to deliver the £340m construction of St David’s 2 Shopping Centre in Cardiff. Simon is a Chartered Civil Engineer and will be based at Pump Supplies’ head office in Port Talbot.

Commenting, Simon said: "I am delighted to be joining Pump Supplies at this important time in the AMP cycle. It creates a fantastic opportunity for us to work closely with clients and partners, new and old, at an early stage and be fully prepared for the AMP 6 delivery phase.

“I’m very fortunate to be joining an organisation with such an embedded people-centred culture, as, without doubt, these values spill over into the second-to-none service and commitment our clients see and appreciate on a daily basis.” Director Andrew John adds: “Simon’s appointment enables us to grow and take the business forward to the next level. He brings a wealth of experience across a broad range of sectors, and we are all excited about what the future holds for Pump Supplies with Simon at the helm.”
