VIP Polymers appoints approved installer of VIP-WECO pipe repair seal
VIP Polymers has appointed JM Contracting as an approved installer of its VIP-WECO trenchless pipe repair seal.
The UK-based JM Contracting has been in the pipeline installation and renovation business for more than 40 years, and will perform the pipe repair seals in the UK and internationally.
“This is a great opportunity for JM Contracting to further develop the range of civil engineering services we already provide to the UK water industry,” said JM Contracting Managing Director John Mitchell.
“In conjunction with our confined space partners Enviromontel, we hold all of the necessary confined space accreditations required by the UK water companies.
“The VIP-WECO sealing system is one we’re obviously very familiar with having installed several hundred over the years and we’re very happy to be an approved installer for VIP as it allows us to work with a company who can provide the product support needed as each project is bespoke.
“With the trend moving towards no-dig repairs and trenchless rehabilitation of pipelines due to the cost savings the technology brings along with reduced disruption to both services and road/pedestrian traffic, we see some very exciting opportunities within the UK water industry.”
The internal repair seal has been proven for use in water systems, waste and potable water repairs, and for end liner repairs; with a short installation time, long service life and compatibility with a range of pipes, it is been used in many projects over the years.
“While we are able to provide installation training for the VIP-WECO, partnering with JM provides a great opportunity for VIP to offer our clients the complete trenchless repair installation service,” said VIP-WECO Business Development Manager Jim Shaw.
