Stonbury are immensely proud to be supporting our clients across the UK at such a crucial time and have been designated as 'key workers' by DEFRA and the UK water utility companies. Our teams are working tirelessly to help secure and maintain drinking water supplies, ensuring clean and safe drinking water is provided without interruption to critical services such as our hospitals as well as the general public. Now more than ever, the safety and wellbeing of our staff is of the utmost importance and we have adapted our safe working practices to ensure social distancing precautions are in place and that the correct hygiene practices are being followed. Safety is our priority, and we endeavour to make sure everyone at Stonbury goes home safe to their family.
Building on over 34 years’ experience in servicing the water industry, the launch of Stonbury Scotland sees the Stonbury Group firmly establish presence within the Scottish water industry. Services will include traditional Stonbury works, from the refurbishment of Treated Water Storage Points (TWSPs) including service reservoirs and water towers to the introduction of the full scope of services the Stonbury Group offers.
