Effective from August 2019 Asset International Ltd, the formerly licensed seller and manufacturer of Weholite in the UK, has been acquired by SDS, the market-leading water infrastructure systems provider. The acquisition includes the exclusive rights to manufacture Weholite large diameter plastic pipes in the UK and Ireland.
SDS designs, manufactures and installs water management systems for sustainable infrastructure. The company is the UK’s leader in Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) and has a broad product portfolio that includes solutions for the surface water, wastewater and industrial cooling water industries.
Established in 2002, SDS is a privately-owned company with headquarters in Biddisham, Somerset. The company is the first in this industry to create a closed loop manufacturing facility for post-consumer PVC waste to be fabricated into finished goods and accounts for 50% of the company’s manufacturing output. In 2017, SDS was named Small to Medium Sized Business of the year in both The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, and in the UK Business Awards (+10 years category).
Continual investment in our Newport-based manufacturing facility, responsibility for the operation of which has been taken over by SDS, has allowed us to be the pioneers and the pace setters within the industry. The plant, which has been operating for more than 20 years, has the capacity to produce 10,000 tonnes of Weholite products each year, including the manufacture of our BBA HAPAS approved industry-leading HDPE large diameter pipe.
From design, through manufacture, delivery and installation we ensure that our customers are provided with a solution for their own, unique requirements. All Weholite customers will continue to be provided with the highest levels of service including the delivery of current and planned projects.
