Chartership - Great News for Flood Sector - Flood Protection Solutions

Posted 04. 12. 2018

We are delighted to announce that our Director, Simon Crowther has passed his professional review and is now a Chartered Water & Environment Manager.

Simon Crowther’s post nominals now include C.WEM MCIWEM.  Becoming chartered demonstrates Simon as a leader in the water and environment profession. This helps demonstrate the level of expertise in our team at Flood Protection Solutions Ltd, and our commitment to the sector.

Simon’s expertise is well recognised and respected within the flood protection industry, and this is one further step showcasing our commitment to drive the industry forwards. Simon is pictured below with his certificate:

The chartership is awarded by CIWEM who are the only Royal Chartered Professional Body dedicated to the water and environment sector. Representing and supporting thousands of members globally, all of whom are dedicated to improving water and environmental management and associated social and cultural issues.  It is a lengthy and rigorous process to become chartered. If you have an Honours degree (or equivalent) and around five years’ experience in the water and/or environment sector, then you’re eligible to apply for C.WEM.

As a company we are very passionate about delivering the highest level of expertise currently available, along with fantastic products and services to suit our customers’ needs. Over the past 6 years we have grown into one of the UK’s leading flood defence companies, supplying organisations such as the NHS and Environment Agency. We also run one of the largest ecommerce sites for water pumps, and our work stretches far outside the immediate flood industry with projects such as pond oxygenation under our belts.

There is a benefit to the public of Simon’s chartership as he is now recognised as a qualified water and environmental manager, distinguishing him from many in the sector.

We are committed to the industry, and the needs of our clients. Going forwards we are looking to help more individuals and companies reduce their flood risk, along with helping phase out single use products and encourage the uptake of reusable and recyclable options, enabling budgets to stretch further, whilst helping protect the environment.

Sole UK distributors of the Water Gate Barrier

The Water-Gate barrier from Megasecur is used in 36 countries around the world. As the sole UK distributor of this flood barrier, we distribute the product across the entire country. The Water-Gate barrier is highly innovative and easily deployed, offering one of the fastest deployment of water
barriers available. Access to emergency vehicles and other vehicles is not compromised as the barrier can be driven over.

The Water-Gate can be shaped around corners and on uneven surfaces, offering flexible protection, and can be joined to create any length. The barrier can be supplied in crates to make deployment of long lengths extremely rapid.
It is cost effective, comparing particularly well with sandbags, especially as it is reusable.

The material used is recyclable and the Water-Gate is reusable making it extremely environmentally friendly.
The barrier is resistant to a long list of chemicals and has been independently tested. It is widely used in pollution control.
