Arch Utility Services.
Arch Utility Services offers technical solutions for drainage, culvert and pipeline maintenance and repair, working with local authorities, as well as rail, utilities, commercial and industrial clients. The South Wales firm believes in investing in the latest equipment to make its work as efficient and environmentally-friendly as possible, and to offer the highest level of service.
Arch was the subject of an MBO in 2019, and the new management team was keen to invest and follow an ambitious plan for growth, targeting turnover of £3.5 million by 2022. This meant purchasing new equipment, taking on staff and expanding its training programme.
It was clear that the Business Plan would require financial support, especially in such a capital-intensive sector, and UKSE was approached.
"Clients are pleased with our technical and professional approach using the latest and often environmentally-friendly process in delivering services bespoke to our clients’ needs. We are very grateful to UKSE for their timely support which has proved extremely beneficial."Managing Director Damian Tranter
How we did it.
As business increased with clients in Wales and southern England, Arch needed to add to its fleet of tankers, specialist survey vehicles and recruit staff to fulfil an increasing order book. UKSE was impressed with the Business Plan and pleased to provide a six-figure loan.
We responded in a timely and strategic way, working collaboratively with Arch management. Arch was able to add several new tankers to its fleet, buy more high-tech equipment and take on new staff. The company was put on a sound financial base for future expansion and UKSE will continue to consider their future needs.
Arch now has a fleet of tankers, robotic equipment and the latest in survey technology to enable it to keep pace with demand for its services and allow for continued development.
Jobs have been created and the company is aiming at turnover of £3.5 million by 2022.
We are working with the company to see if we can help to finance more equipment and support expansion and job creation.
