Engineering solutions provider, Deritend Group, has enjoyed a great start to 2021 with two major ‘framework’ wins for Severn Trent Water and Hafren Dyfrdwy Cyfyngedig.
Deritend Group has been awarded the Fabrication and Mechanical frameworks that means it can provide essential maintenance, repair and replacement services to all clean and waste sites across Cheshire, Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Hafren Dyfrdwy, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire
Located across three sites in the Black Country, Teesside and Bedfordshire, the company expects this work to be worth up to £20m over a potential seven-year period.
Neil Ashwood, Framework Manager at Deritend Group, commented: “This is a massive achievement for our business and gives us a really strong platform for the business going forward.
“About 30 suppliers were invited to tender for the framework contracts and nine were eventually appointed, which means we have been approved to carry out work across Severn Trent Water and Hafren Dyfrdwy Cyfyngedig sites.”
He continued: “This involved site visits for scoping jobs to quote against, completing tender sheets, work scenarios, and completing bid sheets. All of these were marked against stringent criteria and I’m delighted to say we scored highly in all of the six lots we applied for.
“Our skill sets, reputation, capabilities, price and commitment to meeting response times were all cited as key reasons for our successful bids and we’ve already responded by strengthening our framework team with new appointments and investment in new fully equipped vans.”
