Fabrication Workshop Upgrades

Our in-house fabrication workshop in Crewkerne is undergoing refurbishment Now EN1090 approved, our workshop fabricates bespoke items from timber, mild and stainless steel. Typical fabrications can vary from debris screens, flood gates, equipment housing to bridges and jetty’s. Machinery is currently being moved and a new overhead gantry cane installed to facilitate the better movement of larger steel items and completed fabrications. Steel racks and storage areas are being re-sited to make more room and division walls erected to properly segregate the woodworking and metal working areas. Lighting, heating and local exhaust ventilation will be upgraded to improve the working environment throughout the warehouse. Once the refurbishment is complete, we look forward to expanding our scope of specialist supply and production to the UK Water Industry.

Turnover Growth

Stonbury are delighted to announce their financial review, for the year ended 30th June 2017 Another excellent year was achieved with 43% growth in turnover to £24 million, building on growth of 33% in the previous year to become the clear market leaders for the repair, maintenance and refurbishment of drinking water service reservoirs and water towers. A number of new build schemes were completed during the year, including their first new service reservoir near Burton-upon-Trent, for South Staffordshire Water. James Stonor, CEO, comments, “Our fantastic growth came from a clear focus on first class customer service.  During the year, we added three new frameworks to our already impressive roster of multi-year framework contracts that cover almost all of the water companies in England and Wales.” 

Invertebrate Boat Survey Trial

We have been working with Wessex Water to complete two invertebrate surveys on the River Avon, sampling above and below discharge points, using a Yorkshire Pattern’ airlift pump. Benthic macroinvertebrates are an important group of organisms to study, as many are sensitive to physical and chemical changes in the watercourse. Their relative immobility means they cannot easily escape the impacts of thermal, chemical or organic pollution. Due to the species relative immobility when compared to that of the fisheries community, species can be more directly tied to site-specific habitats, and are therefore more reflective of the health of that specific habitat location. These organisms help us to better understand the health of our river and streams, and the processes that maintain them. This information will help inform the water authorities how the discharge is impacting the habitat and water quality within the sample areas. The benthic macroinvertebrates are recorded to find out what species are present and in what numbers.
