During 2016, IBS continued to deliver successful installations of high profile glass flood defence systems around the UK, taking their total of successfully delivered projects past the 1.5Km milestone since the first system was installed in Keswick in 2011. Included in 2016’s successes was the UK’s largest glass flood defence system at 520m long, installed to protect the village of Paull (near Hull) from future tidal surges and as a part of the wider Hull and Holderness Flood Alleviation Scheme, a project that is providing defences along the Humber estuary together with inland engineering works.
These recent projects have allowed IBS to continue their unrivalled success in the delivery of these specialist glass flood defence systems. Having re-located to larger premises in South Yorkshire at the end of 2015, IBS continue to expand and support more clients in the UK, most recently by the addition of a new team member to help manage the ever increasing level of enquiries.
Managing Director Ray Moulds, says
”After such an exceptional year with multiple large contract successes, not only in the UK & Ireland but also globally, we’re very much looking forward to 2017 and seeing our business expand further. By this I don’t just mean by supporting more and more clients with our high quality innovative solutions, but also with exciting product developments that our teams are working on and which will enhance our client offerings for the future”.
You can see IBS at a number of events during 2017, including the Cumbria Flood Expo in Carlisle at the beginning of February and the Flood & Coast exhibition in Telford at the end of March, both of which they are providing sponsorship for.
