Selwood has expanded its thriving operation and created new jobs with the opening of a new branch in Birmingham. The branch, Selwood’s 20th pump rental centre, builds on the company’s position as the number one pump rental provider serving the water, utility and construction industries in the UK, and enables additional capacity for it to service major projects in Central England.
The Birmingham facility is part of an ongoing programme which has seen Selwood invest heavily in its pump rental fleet and branches. It is the third new centre in as many years, following branch openings in Aberdeen, and Saltash in Cornwall.
The branch opens with immediate vacancies for office staff and mobile engineers. It is expected that there will also be opportunities for future roles including project managers, LGV drivers, pump fitters and technicians.
Richard Brown, Managing Director–Pumping Solutions at Selwood said: “The Midlands is a key region for Selwood, and the opening of this new branch in Birmingham underlines our commitment to the region.
“Our teams are proud to have strong partnerships with clients in the area, including Severn Trent Water and many of its contractors, and this new facility will help us nurture and grow those relationships. It also makes Selwood ideally positioned to support the HS2 high-speed railway project and other major programmes across Central England in the coming decades.”
