Wirral Mayor helps Feedwater Celebrate 40 years of Success
The Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Les Rowlands recently visited the Moreton based water treatment specialist Feedwater Ltd as part of their celebrations as they enter their 40th year of trading. Managing Director Tim Parkinson (Left), who joined Feedwater as an apprentice 35 years ago, said:
It is great to be part of a local success story. Feedwater was founded by our Chairman, Pat Revans during the difficult trading conditions of the mid 1970s. Over the last 40 years, often despite difficult trading conditions, we’ve grown year on year and are now a major employer on Wirral employing over 80 staff both at Moreton and around the UK. Having the Mayor visit is an acknowledgement of our success and a great encouragement as we start the next phase of our planned growth.
The mayor was given a guided tour around the facilities at the Moreton head office including, labs and production departments.
The Mayor expressed his delight with the mornings event spending time discussing with the company Chairman Pat Revans (Centre) the difficult regional economic climate Feedwater was born into in the mid 70s sharing stories from the period. The Mayor expressed the pride he felt at coming to learn the journey of a local company with humble beginnings now providing services and employment across the country as well as exporting skills and locally produced products to markets across the globe.
In his diary published weekly in the Liverpool Echo the Mayor summed up the company for his readers.
“Feedwater Ltd is a water treatment company based on Tarran Way which supplies products and services for the treatment of water for steam boilers, cooling towers, building services and industrial processes. As their website says, they were helping prevent Legionnaires’ Disease before most people had even heard of it. Here’ to another 40 years’ successful trading.”
Feedwater wishes to thank The Mayor for his visit.
