Jet Aire Services has been shortlisted for a prestigious award in a ceremony which recognises outstanding work between water companies and their partners.
Our work over the last 12 months has attracted the attention of the judges at the Water Industry Awards 2022, and we were delighted to hear that we are in with a chance of winning the Contractor of the Year honour.
We are up against Galliford Try, Network Plus and MWH Treatment, and will find out if we have been successful when the awards are handed out at a glittering ceremony at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole on June 29.
Over the last year, Jet Aire Services has acquired Tyneside-based drainage experts KwikFlow to expand our fleet and coverage, and we were then subsequently taken over by environmental specialists Adler & Allan in a deal which was mutually beneficial for both parties.
On top of that, we have invested in excess of £1.5m in new technology to enhance our service offerings while staff have embraced the firm’s CARE Values model which encourages best practice in and out of the business.
Darren Pavan, Managing Director at Jet Aire Services, said: “It has been a exciting time for us over the last year, and it is a great honour to be shortlisted in such a high-profile event which recognises the very best in the sector across the whole of the UK.
“Our business has grown dramatically in the last year, firstly with the deal which saw us acquire KwikFlow and then the opportunity which saw us join the Adler & Allan group.
“With a head office in Leeds and other depots in Darlington and Team Valley, we have been widely regarded as a northern-based specialist in the sector.
“But the work and investment we have made in recent months has helped us to flourish and grow to the level where we can pick up work anywhere in the UK.
“To be recognised in the Contractor of the Year category shows just how far we have come.
“Our crews carry out fantastic work in often difficult conditions 365 days a year, but there is an awful lot of hard work carried out by our support teams in the three offices to ensure things run smoothly so I see this as a real team effort and offer my thanks to every single person who has played a part in our growth.
“We congratulate all of the other companies who have been shortlisted, and we look forward to what I’m certain will be a fantastic evening.”
The annual awards are organised by Utility Week Innovate, and return after a two-year break caused by the pandemic.
