Jet Aire Services is continuing to expand its team of specialists to meet growing demand for its expertise in trenchless drainage maintenance. Having recruited a Lining Manager and two more lining operatives in the summer, the company is now recruiting patching
engineers to join its dedicated services in ‘no-dig’ drainage remediation. The move follows the recent acquisition of further resources for trenchless maintenance, including additional CCTV drain survey cameras, new cutting equipment and the latest ultraviolet lining system from Swedish manufacturer, UV Relining, which enables the internal reinforcement of smaller and more complex pipe structures without expensive and disruptive excavation.
Neil Meakins, Regional Manager for Yorkshire, said: “Trenchless techniques are well established as best practice where feasible in drainage maintenance. They enable rehabilitation and repair without resorting to invasive excavation, thereby reducing
time, disruption, cost, environmental impact and carbon footprint. Jet Aire has invested heavily in its no-dig resources over the past few years and offers a full portfolio of trenchless solutions, including cure-in-place pipe reinforcements, commonly known as CIPP patching and CIPP lining. Jet Aire’s CIPP patching comprises a length of glass fibre matting which rolled around a packer and adhered to the pipe when the packer inflates. It is an economic solution for localised damage. To address multiple weaknesses with a drainage network, the company provides CIPP lining which installs the lining and cures it in place using either an ambient, hot or ultra-violet method.
Jet Aire has experienced a substantial increase in demand for these solutions across a wide range of sectors, including facilities management, energy, chemical processing, retail, utilities, highways, transport and infrastructure. It is likely to be one of the fastest-growing areas of the business in the coming years.”Furthermore, Jet Aire Services is proud to be sponsoring a new initiative launched by local charity, Leeds Cares.
Jet Aire Services Chairman, Charlie Kirk, said: “Leeds Cares does fantastic work in support of our local NHS hospitals and this year they have come up with an amazingly creative way to raise money amid the restrictions caused by the pandemic. Everyone at Jet Aire is incredibly grateful for the heroic work of our fellow key workers in the NHS during the Covid-19 crisis. As a Leeds-based company, we welcomed the opportunity to get behind the Sparkle campaign and show our support for Leeds Teaching Hospitals”
Leeds Cares provide support for eight areas which include Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds Children’s Hospital, Leeds Cancer Centre, St James’s University Hospital, Chapel Allerton Hospital, Seacroft Hospital, Wharfdale Hospital and Leeds Dental Institute. It supports NHS staff to deliver the best care for over a million patients and their families each
year. Working with local communities, schools and businesses across the city and beyond, Leeds Cares provides £5 million in additional funding each year for Leeds Teaching
Hospitals Trust. Through generous donations, Leeds Cares has funded lifesaving equipment, research fellowships, state-of-the-art technology and improvements to the patient environment.
Every penny donated to Leeds Cares helps to support the hard -working staff at our hospitals and enhance the experience of patients and their families.
