Telford depot opens to support glycol recovery airport contract

Sweeptech Environmental Services, a leading provider of sustainable waste solutions, is pleased to announce the opening of its new depot in Telford, which will serve as the company’s new base in the Midlands. This strategic expansion is in direct response to Sweeptech’s recent contract win with East Midlands International Airport for Glycol Recovery services, solidifying Sweeptech’s commitment to providing comprehensive waste management solutions on a national scale. 

Glycol Recovery is a critical aspect of environmental sustainability in airport operations, as it involves the safe removal and recycling of de-icing fluids used to ensure safe aircraft operations during adverse weather conditions. 

The acquisition of the Telford site marks another significant milestone in Sweeptech’s growth journey – having recently opened two further depots in Southampton and Heathrow – and exemplifies the strength of the company’s partnerships. The Telford development was made possible through the goodwill of Sweeptech’s long-standing business relationship with Caltec Environmental Services. Sweeptech’s decision to employ Caltec’s experienced staff and invest in new road sweepers and tankers for their existing depot demonstrates the company’s dedication to delivering enhanced services and sustainable benefits to its customers. 

On a wider strategic level, the Telford Depot allows Sweeptech to extend the geographic reach of its patented technology, benefiting clients across the Midlands, including existing relationships with National Highways, in addition to construction projects and broader scope airport contracts.

Commenting on this expansion, Martin Smith, CEO of Sweeptech, stated, “We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new depot in Telford. This expansion not only strengthens our presence in the Midlands, but also enables us to provide top-tier Glycol Recovery services to East Midlands International Airport and beyond. Our partnership with Caltec Environmental Services has played a pivotal role in making this possible and we are excited about the sustainable benefits and value we can bring to our clients through our innovative technology and dedicated team.”

Sweeptech is committed to environmental stewardship and providing sustainable solutions to its clients. The company’s Glycol Recovery services play a vital role in reducing the environmental impact of airport operations and ensuring compliance with environmental regulations.
