This month we exhibited at the seventh Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) Exhibition in Telford. WWEM is a focused event for companies and individuals who are involved with water, wastewater and environmental monitoring.
The event was a great success, enabling our sales team to meet and catch up with over 150 of our customers old and new! The exhibition provided us with a useful window into industry trends and it’s personalities. Guest speakers included, Steven Morris, Policy Advisor of DEFRA, who spoke on the subject of ‘Implementing the priority pollutant obligations of the Water Framework Directive – A regulator’s perspective’ and Heli Gong, University of Calgary, who presented on the topic ‘Neural Networks for Wastewater Treatment Process – A Review.’
Paul Norman our Sales Engineer covering the Eastern side of the UK commented, ‘WWEM provided us with great opportunities to engage with existing and potential clients. It really was an ideal platform to discuss current and future products for all parties, plus it provided a wider industry view that is always useful as a manufacturer.’
Our Joint Managing Director Angus Fosten also commented, ‘It was great to see another group of apprentices demonstrating their knowledge and skills, bringing new engineers into our industry is vital to the ongoing improvements that are being demanded by regulators and consumers’.
We even found time to hold a ‘guess the suspended solids’ competition – awarding a remote control drone as a prize, this was won by Natasa Ibrisimiovic from Eijkelkamp – well done!
