Meet the Team
One of the founding directors Eric is perhaps one of the area’s, if not the country’s leading authorities on borehole and surface pumping water systems.
Having a keen interest in spring water supply Eric also is well respected for his design and specifications when it comes to delivering spring water and water treatment systems often designing out problems and creating new solutions.

In more recent times he became the contracts manager ensuring delivery of borehole drilling contracts ranging from single dwellings to large agricultural and industrial contracts.
