S.Wilkinson Drain Jetting Limited – A One-Stop Service Success

Water drain

By providing quality site surfacing and drainage services all in one place, S. Wilkinson Drain Jetting Limited is now an industry leader in the north-west.

In business, some service providers are vital to the success of other firms and crucial to the economic landscape – site surfacing and drainage contractors are one of them. Without the specialist engineering skills these firms provide, that implement and maintain infrastructure such as transporting clean water supplies to various locations, where would other businesses, such as developers be?

S. Wilkinson Drain Jetting Limited is a leading civil contractor which provides stand out site surfacing and drainage services to developers, including major housebuilders. It lays the groundwork, enabling developers to get the green light from local councils and water companies and start their works.

To date, the Warrington-based firm’s success lies in its “full package, one-stop service,” explains Managing Director Stephen Wilkinson. It’s why he launched the company back in 2005, and with thirty-five years of civil contracting experience under his belt, he remains the right person to lead it.

Like all emerging enterprises, it faced its share of challenges at the start, “reputation was a big factor,” explains Stephen. However, its one-stop service, a founding principle, helped it stand out from the crowd and secured its sky high industry reputation, so much so that it has “no competition” today, and remains “one of the leading site adoption services in the north-west of England.”

With the business now nineteen years old, Stephen’s learned plenty of leadership lessons along the way. A big one for him is to “never let things get out of control.” A useful rule for any business leader to live by, but particularly for those in civil contracting, surfacing and drainage, a sector which requires a lot of careful planning, strategy and communication.

S. Wilkinson Drain Jetting Limited is a company that is confident about where it sits in the market, and it currently has no plans for expansion in the near future, “we are comfortable with the size we are,” he confirms. However, venturing into storage facilities could be on the cards for the firm, but we’ll have to wait and see.

When it comes to measuring success, Stephen acknowledges that “good and bad times” are inevitable in business life, but in his case, the fact that “we are still here and making money with no debts” is something to be proud of, and we can’t help but agree.
