Taylor & Goodman wins Severn Trent contracts

Posted: Thursday 20th November 2008

National repair and distribution company Taylor & Goodman has won two new contracts with Severn Trent Water, potentially worth around £3 million per annum.

Taylor & Goodman will be responsible for general mechanical and electrical services for Severn Trent Water, along with eight other suppliers as part of a framework agreement. In addition, the company has won the Fabricated Access Equipment contract for Severn Trent, for a period of two years, working alongside three other companies in the framework agreement.

The new contracts will cover an area spanning several counties - from Gloucestershire to Nottinghamshire - and will be serviced from a new branch in Erdington, Birmingham. The two new contracts follow a motor repair contract awarded to Taylor & Goodman in October 2007.

Taylor & Goodman opened up another workshop in January 2008 to service this original contract. The new workshop currently has eight staff members, supported by a team from a number of Taylor & Goodman’s other branches in Bishop’s Stortford, Cleveland, Eastbourne, Fleet, Huddersfield, Oldham and Reading.

Since its inception, the Birmingham branch has won a number of new contracts with food companies such as Soreco, Pork Farms and Northern Foods, for which Taylor & Goodman provides electrical and mechanical repairs.

Mark Williams, Taylor & Goodman workshop supervisor, commented: “We are delighted the new branch in Birmingham has been so successful over the last seven months since we started operating with a view to servicing the Severn Trent contracts.

“We hope to develop our relationship with Severn Trent Water Ltd further, so they are fully aware of Taylor & Goodman’s capabilities. We also wish to build on our current success with food companies and expand the business within this area.”

Peter Ryder, managing director of Taylor & Goodman added: “Water companies have traditionally provided a strong customer base for us, and Severn Trent Water has recognised our skills and expertise in this area by awarding us the contract to provide them with general mechanical and electrical support, motor repair and similarly with the contract for Fabricated Access Equipment.

“The last ten months have been an exciting time, with the opening of an eighth regional office and the opportunities we have for expanding within the Birmingham area. Taylor & Goodman has truly established itself as one of the top UK firms within the repair industry.”

Michael Miles of Severn Trent Water commented: “We have been impressed with the level of service provided by Taylor and Goodman since awarding the company with the motors contract in October 2007.

“The contracts for general mechanical and electrical services earlier this year and the recent Fabricated Access Equipment contract will complement the motors contract and will help drive efficiencies in the future.”
