Talis UK announces new growth plans

Published:  20 April, 2014

Talis UK, the valve, meterbox and water fitting specialist, has announced ambitious new plans to see it become the leading supplier in the industry.

With new investment, a new management team and new offices, Talis UK is predicting a year of substantial growth.

Established in 2010, Talis UK was formed when Triton Investment Group acquired Tyco Waterworks EMEA from Tyco Flow Control to create a new company. Within the UK, ATPLAS and ERHARD Valves have all become part of Talis UK, bringing together an extensive product portfolio and a wealth of experience and technical expertise.

Following several years of consolidation, Talis UK is announcing a new growth drive under the leadership of new managing director, Mark Hodgens. The company is forecasting a £30m turnover this year – a 30% increase on the £23m turnover achieved in 2013.

Talis UK is making a large investment in its workforce, with changes to the senior management team and the appointment of a new operations director and sales director. The company has also recently secured significant contracts in Ireland. As a result of the recent growth plans, Talis UK has appointed 45 new fulltime employees.

With the main distribution centre and manufacturing facility based in Bridgend, South Wales, Talis UK services customers around the world. Recent growth plans also include an office move for its Birmingham team. This location will help to provide efficient and cost effective service to customers from all the main water companies in the UK, as well as water authorities, contractors, wholesalers and distributors in the plumbing and construction industries.

Mr Hodgens said: “Although Talis UK was only formed in 2010, the company has accrued a wealth of experience, thanks to investment and collaboration with companies such as ATPLAS and ERHARD. We’re now bringing this experience and technical expertise together to provide strong customer support and an extensive and proven product offering.

“We’re approaching the next step with a renewed focus. Our products have already proved successful in the water and construction industries across the world and we’re starting to see the same level of success under the Talis UK name. Coupled with Talis’ rich and diverse history as part of Tyco Waterworks, we’re confident that Talis UK will continue to provide quality products and services to the industry
