Sheffield crane service provider picks up water industry contract

Street CraneXpress, the Sheffield-based national crane service provider, has picked up a major contract with Southern Water.

It is taking control of lifting equipment at 181 Southern Water treatment works extending from East Kent through parts of Sussex, to Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The contract marks a significant extension of Street CraneXpress’s reach into the south of the UK and underlines its expansion plans.

“We are delighted to be working with Southern Water,” said Sales Manager Duncan Randall.

“In this instance, our online reporting system, software systems and records in efficiency and health and safety record were key factors in winning the competitive tender against national providers.”

The Sheffield company – part of the SCX group of companies – employs about 70 engineers and administrative staff at its headquarters in Tyler Street, Wincobank.

The Southern Water contract follows the best results in the company’s 46-year history, with rising sales, turnover and numbers of staff.
