Christmas Jumper day

Today we joined forces with our partners at Ross-shire Engineering for #missionchristmas Cash for Kids charity Christmas Jumper day. Thank you to our employees for their kind donations. As we couldn’t have a Christmas party we organised a hog-roast food van which everyone enjoyed.
Wishing all our clients and suppliers a wonderful Christmas.
We have a skeleton staff at WES next week and will be closed after the 24th until Monday 4 January.

WES Announces Partnership with RSE

Basingstoke headquartered chemical dosing specialists WES Ltd today announced an equity investment by leading Scottish engineering group, RSE. Directors Kevin Wheeler and Bob Cook will remain with the business and look to realise the benefits of becoming part of a larger group with complementary skillsets.

WES Managing Director Kevin Wheeler welcomed the partnership as a timely support to WES’s growth ambitions. “Since forming WES 25 years ago, we have achieved sustained year-on-year growth. We are looking forward to continuing this journey with greater capacity and technical support from our new colleagues at RSE. As our customers seek out cost-effective and carbon-reducing solutions to their projects, we feel confident the products and innovations developed by RSE will only strengthen our offering to the market.”

RSE is an engineering group that specialises in Water Treatment & Clean Energy Solutions. Its 800+ staff – spread across ten locations – are skilled in the design, engineering and delivery of MEICA projects and services (MEICA: Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Controls & Automation). Like WES, RSE design and build chemical dosing systems as part of its offsite manufacturing offer to the UK water industry.

All of WES’s 50 staff are based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

RSE Managing Director, Allan Dallas, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome WES into the RSE group of businesses. We have been successful in the past year exporting our award-winning water treatment systems into the English market, with demand growing faster than we first expected. Our interest in acquiring WES is to extend the reach of our existing chemical dosing offering, and we are pleased to now have a highly capable engineering team based in the South.”

“WES have been innovative in developing products over the past years, and we believe these will complement our own products. Water companies have expressed an interest in our offsite manufacturing solutions in recent months, especially to address environmental challenges such as the removal of phosphorous from UK water supplies. We hope that customers will welcome this acquisition so that we can enhance the capacity of WES – who are market leaders in the southern geographies.”
