Drain Center gets into action at Center Parcs, Woburn Forest.

Drain Center deal delivers for Center Parcs

Published:  17 January, 2013

Drain Center, in conjunction with Linnick Group, has won a contract to supply all utility products for Center Parcs, Woburn Forest.

The two companies, which celebrate a relationship spanning over 10 years, will together provide the mechanical and electrical infrastructure for the new holiday villages.

Linnick Engineering will be responsible for the infrastructures for gas, water, high and low voltage, television and data containment, and Drain Center will act as exclusive supply partner for all water pipes, valves, electrofusion fittings and ducting for telecommunication cables.

Drain Center, a national supplier of over 30 000 drainage products to the professional construction market, was able to enhance its offering by supplying McElroy DynaMc Butt Fusion Welders, winches and pipe installation equipment to the site through its sister brand MCA Hire, giving Linnick Engineering just one point of contact, instead of having to go through multiple suppliers.

Rachel McGreevy, the merchant's regional key account manager, said: "We won the contract because we've earned Linnick Engineering's trust, after working with the firm for nearly a decade."

Tony Nicklin, managing director of Linnick Engineering, added: "We've been fortunate enough to work with Center Parcs for over two decades - we regularly review and redesign the mechanical and electrical structures that currently exist at the four UK sites.

"Because we know the brand so well, we know what needs to be done and we make sure we deliver to a high standard of design and workmanship as well as being on time.

"We chose to partner with Drain Center because it demonstrated that it had the product availability systems necessary for a project of this scale, along with a commitment to keep its promises. The contract required timed deliveries on site and Drain Center was able to fulfil this requirement."
