A Suffolk-based waste water management company is branching out with the launch of a new specialist safety training division.

Industrial Water Jetting Systems (IWJS), which has its head office at Woolpit, near Bury St Edmunds, already operates across the country through a network of five regional depots.

From January 22, however, it is adding a new division, Industrial Water Training Services (IWTS), which will offer specialist training in confined space entry and rescue.

Christopher Stewart, managing director of IWJS, which was founded in 1977, said: “Developing our own safety training company at IWTS gives us the capability to provide nationally accredited safety training, both for ourselves at IWJS and the wider UK market.

“This will further ensure that our major clients in the utilities have the upmost confidence in us to deliver our services to the highest safety standard.

“We now offer a comprehensive and dedicated service that ensures the highest levels of confined space entry and related safety training available.”

IWTS will be based at a purpose-built faciliy in Oldham, Lancashire, with a remit to target major operators in the utilities, civils and construction sectors, along with potential customers in other sectors such as local authorities, pharmaceuticals and chemicals.
