Teesside is the name given to the conurbation in the North East of England around the urban centre of Middlesbrough that is also made up of the towns of Billingham, Redcar, Stockton-on-Tees, Thornaby and surrounding settlements near the River Tees. It was also the name of a local government district between 1968 and 1974—the County Borough of Teesside. Teesside remains an important centre for heavy industry, although the number of people employed has declined. Traditional industries, primarily steelmaking (‘British Steel’) and chemical manufacture (‘Imperial Chemical Industries’ or ‘ICI’), have been replaced to a large extent by high technology activities, science development and service sector roles. The area has strong maritime links and has one of the most successful deep-water ports in the UK – Teesport. While heavy industry has declined, modern high-tec industries have flourished, backed by a World Class University. Teesside University benefitted from £260m investment making it one of the leading UK Universities for working with business, as well as being a leader in the gaming and visualisation industries.
With such a diverse regional mix in Teesside, we took the decision to deploy highly experienced installer teams in this area to continue to add to our growing portfolio of satisfied customers by delivering the top quality projects to our Teesside clients, a decision that has enhanced our reputation in the region enormously.
We are delighted to have been so well accepted in Teesside, where we know how proud this region’s inhabitants are of their surroundings and we also know that they will not compromise on quality, which is one of the reasons why our boiler projects are so well received by Teessiders and why our testimonials and return visits to the area are so high.
