Siltbuster Unveils Expansion Plans

20 Oct 2015

Siltbuster Ltd, the UK’s leading water treatment specialist, has unveiled ambitious expansion plans to develop a new 10 acre Head Office complex in Monmouth and double its business.

Siltbuster has grown rapidly over the last 15 years, supplying temporary and permanent water treatment plants which are used in over 33 countries. Its technology is used in sectors such as food, drink and mining plus within the construction and water utility markets. The company has also developed material separation systems which are used by recycling companies and local authorities.

Siltbuster’s award-winning systems are all designed and manufactured from its site in Monmouth. According to the company, the biggest bottleneck to further expansion for the business is a lack of space, as Dr Richard Coulton, Siltbuster CEO, explains:

“We have been located on our current site since 2004, when we originally thought we would have to sublet half of it out. Now we have 4 sites on the same industrial estate in Monmouth and are still constrained by space!”

The development is part of the Siltbuster’s 2020 vision for ongoing growth and expansion, both in the UK and internationally. This includes engineering and selling more, innovative water treatment and materials recycling equipment worldwide, and in the process doubling its turnover whilst creating an additional 65 highly skilled technical jobs over the next five years.

The expansion project is being phased in two sections, with a temporary storage yard currently being constructed which will cater for immediate expansion, and the new offices and warehousing planned to be erected over the next 12 months, subject to planning permission.

Richard Coulton concludes: “Siltbuster looks forward to remaining in Monmouth and establishing the new development as a centre of excellence for water treatment technology throughout Europe and beyond!”
