Wastewater monitoring specialist grows exponentially following global water industry project wins and innovative new product launches

Lancashire-based wastewater monitoring specialists, Detectronic, have reported a 140% increase in turnover from 2020 to 2021.

The company recorded a turnover of £2.8 million in April 2020. That figure rose to £6.7 million in April 2021.

This exponential growth has also resulted in Detectronic increasing staff numbers by 84% in the last 12 months.

Commenting on the firm’s continued success, managing director, Neil Butler, said: “We’re obviously delighted with these financials which bear testament to the team’s unrelenting hard work and focus on achieving our long-term commercial objectives.

“Like many businesses, we had to place several of our staff on furlough just two years ago. As such, the fact that we were able to record exponential growth during that time underlines the shared commitment we all have to succeed; I’m extremely proud of each and every one of my colleagues in that respect.”

Continues Neil: “Over the last few years we have invested heavily in new product development, including the launch of our pioneering, low-cost LIDoTT monitor that is taking the global water industry by storm. This product, which was granted a UK patent earlier this year, is already in operation in various sites across the UK as well as in Australia, Germany, Singapore, Finland, Canada and Turkey.

“As well as driving product innovation, we have worked closely with both our water industry and commercial customers, to help them meet ever-changing regulations, prevent pollutions and flooding, improve processes and, ultimately, save money. Our proactive approach and ability to find solutions through smart network monitoring has made us the ‘go-to’ wastewater specialist.

“We have also appointed a number of new channel partners over the last 12 months and are actively seeking to recruit more in a variety of regions all over the world. This activity will only enhance our planned overseas expansion and enable us to open even more new doors.”

Concludes Neil: “It is now our focus to continue on this growth trajectory by maximising every sales opportunity and further adding to the incredible team of people here at Detectronic.”
