Aquatronic Group Management Plc celebrate their 45th anniversary by building a new factory at Copford.
Group Chairman Mr David Taylor started the business 45 years ago on his own with one van. Today AGM are a group of companies with over 50 vans and 150 employees.
AGM Pumpseal (formerly Acorn Pressurisation Services) provides the installation, repairs and maintenance services associated with the original company together with expanding the brief to include water hygiene, waste water and other plant room support.
Aquatech Pressmain, AGM’s brand of water pumps and pressurisation units can be found all over the world, enabling water to flow in buildings such as Tate Modern, Heathrow Airport and The Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Over the past 45 years when much of the UK’s manufacturing industries have been lost, AGM are understandably proud to have kept this side of the business not only profitable but thriving.
The new factory in Copford provides a state of the art facility for Aquatech Pressmain to meet the challenges of leaving the European Union and the next 45 years.
When asked to what he attributed his success Mr Taylor said “We have always focused on providing a high quality product, meeting the needs of the current market. With a supporting service and maintenance department, available 24/7 throughout the UK. Our ethos has been to keep the values of a family firm and many of our staff have been with us for over 20 years”
