Chris BreezeManaging Director
In 1977 I was encourage to create a business by associates and people from the public and private sector that would cater for a broad range of activities within the waste water treatment industry. I had been working for Severn Trent Water for over twenty years in this field. During this time I achieved the necessary qualifications, and gained the practical hands on experience and knowledge that were required in order to successfully establish my business. I had also obtained numerous skills whilst serving in the army, and these experiences, coupled with my water treatment knowledge, gave me the confidence to embark on this venture. A policy of recruiting well qualified, forward thinking people who have with vast experience of waste water treatment, subsequently joined the team allowing the business to flourish and progress.
