SebaKMT story continues with new recruits and new products

Posted: Tuesday 24th February 2009

Cable fault and leak location equipment specialist SebaKMT says it has started 2009 with a full order book and a new sales team. Jaime Ashcroft has joined the SebaKMT team of experts. She is a qualified leakage engineer with over ten years experience in engineering with Three Valleys Water and business development with acoustic leakage specialist Guttermann.

Mike Napper, managing director of SebaKMT commented: “The UK’s utility companies have got to invest in the infrastructure of our water distribution networks and power supplies and despite the prospect of a recession we are very optimistic about our prospects in 2009. Our specialist equipment is a major help to our customers and their contractors to meet industry targets and to deliver an excellent service to the end users – the public.”

Jaime Ashcroft said: “Joining SebaKMT is a tremendous opportunity to work in a much broader portfolio. Leak detection is not properly understood by the industry and the public and this is a great chance to be involved with training, developing and improving service delivery right across the sector.”

The SebaKMT operation, based in Calne, Wiltshire, and backed by its German parent group, has seen the business double in size year on year, since it was established in 2002, to its current turnover of £2.5M.

It is one of the south west’s best kept secrets, forming a niche in UK specialist tool sector, working hard to help builders, local authorities and utility companies keep pace with the demand for better services and an improved infrastructure for the water and power industry with its range of hi-tech professional equipment. Its expertise is in the location of leaks, faults in power lines and surveying ground to ensure that construction work does cut across vital services and power cables. SebaKMT’s core market is the water industry, power distribution companies, contractors and small builders. Clients include United Utilities, Scottish Water, Severn Trent, Central Networks and numerous major contractors.

The operation is part owned by the managing director, Mike Napper, who lives in Clevedon and has over twenty years of experience in the cable avoidance and fault location sector. He said:

“Environmental and economic pressure on water companies to minimise leaks, health and safety regulations and a drive for operational efficiency means there is strong demand for our products and services. With a strong sales pipeline and backed by innovative products we are well set to reach a £7M turnover by 2011.”
