Stonbury is proud to deliver industry-leading solutions for the water sector that offer exceptional value in low-carbon and cost-effective water asset management.

Leading in quality 

As the UK’s largest installer of Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) Regulation 31-approved products, Stonbury is an established provider of potable water infrastructure solutions and is proud to share practical knowledge and decades of experience to help develop new products, processes, and innovative strategies to deliver safe and reliable outcomes.
