November 2013 will see Maris Pumps Ltd, the UK’s fastest growing pump hire specialists, celebrate 10 years of trading from their Chesterfield based depot.
Established by Barrie Maris in 2003, Maris Pumps has grown continually over the last 10 years from a small fleet of pumps with a single delivery vehicle to probably the UK’s largest single pump hire depot, by providing a genuine 24-hour a day, 7-day a week pump hire service.
Serving the construction, drainage & civil engineering industries, as well as mines, quarries & utilities, Maris Pumps currently supply pump hire solutions to leading companies in their industry sectors. Their client list includes many of the water utility and top 100 civil engineering/construction companies.
The company was setup in 2003 in a small rented industrial unit in Brimington, Chesterfield – the low overheads allowed Maris Pumps to become established and by 2007 enabled the purchase of the current main depot: a 16 acre custom-built facility in Temple Normanton, Chesterfield housing a fleet of over 250 pumps and 5 delivery vehicles.
A number of milestones quickly followed; becoming a limited company and development of the Road Ramp™ in 2008; becoming ISO9001:2008 registered in 2011 and ISO14001 registered in 2013.
Steven Mosley, General Manager of the company commented, “I am extremely proud to be celebrating our 10th anniversary of trading in November. The company has grown so rapidly from where we started and will continue to expand in the future. We have a fantastic team working with us whose expertise and dedication has brought us to where we are today – we will continue to provide the high levels of service we’ve become renowned for and look forward to the next 10 years of business!”
Always striving for improvement, Maris Pumps has introduced several innovative products on to the pump hire market: the Road Ramp™, a unique Registered Design which allows water to be pumped across a road whilst maintaining traffic flow, and the Micron Filter Sock, a simple and economic way of separating silts and fines from water that would normally discharge into drains and water courses.
Maris Pumps continue with their ambitious plans for the future: the company is due to open a new depot in Leeds this month, allowing even quicker delivery times to sites in Yorkshire and Lancashire, which will lead to further depots across the country, cementing them as the UK’s #1 pump hire specialists.
