Well, 2014 certainly has been another great year for iGroup; it’s now been almost 3 years since the “i” concept was formed, and the group has gone from strength to strength, with our ever increasing customer base, consistently growing services portfolio, and our expanding geographical coverage. Here’s a quick snapshot of what we’ve been up to during the last 12 months!

CIPP Lining
As the UK’s leading CIPP specialist, iLine Technologies have installed more large diameter UV liners than any of our competitors in 2014; our CIPP installations have ranged from 150mm to over 1600mm in diameter, with many being installed in complex locations, whilst providing full turnkey support packages. Over 120 individual contracts have been executed through this year (many of which via repeat business), throughout the UK, Europe & Australia, which demonstrates the great depth of relationship that iLine has with its client base.

GRP Lining
2014 has been a strong year for the iGroup GRP lining division, with in excess of 20 culverts being rehabilitated, some having diameters in excess of 2000mm. Our UK & overseas supply chain has played a very important role in our GRP successes this year, and our thanks go to all our partners that have unconditionally supported us.

Once again, our iDrill business has delivered another set of great results, despite an ever increasingly competitive marketplace. With mile after mile of underground pipes being installed, over a wide range of diameters, prices per metre have remained stable over the last year, with our core plant and equipment (manufactured by Vermeer) performing flawlessly once again, which has helped with the delivery of our schemes within budget, on programme and always on target!

Our guided-augerboring team has had a great 2014, with many of our installations being delivered ahead of schedule and within budget. Our diameter range of 150mm to 1000mm has proved to be a very popular product-line with our clients, and over 80% of our installations have been through the ‘repeat customer’ route.

Our freshly-formed consultancy division has got off to a great start in 2014, with 15 newly engaged clients providing a steady stream of orders for feasibility studies, project management, design works and contract preparation. This new workstream fully complements our specialist contracting division, and provides a great foundation on which to build our future.

2014 has been a cracking year for iGroup, and we would like to take this opportunity to wish all our partners, clients, suppliers & staff a very happy Christmas and a most prosperous 2015; here’s to another great one!
