COFEPOW – Children and Families of Far East Prisoners of War

S R Waite Group are proud to have added to our portfolio of charities which we support.

Our support of local community foundations and sporting clubs is well known, and we are proud to have solid links and partnerships with many local, regional and national charities. This latest charitable organisation however caught our attention outside of normal working hours.

Andy Mazey, head of the Group, explains: “every year my partner Charlotte and I attend a summer fund raising garden party and dog show, organised by Charlotte’s family, and hosted at their farm and family home. This has been an annual event for as many years as I can remember and something which Jenny,  Charlotte’s mother is very passionate about. Rather embarrassingly on my behalf I must admit, it is only this year that I have actually taken time to research the charity (COFEPOW) properly and now completely understand Jenny’s passion and the importance of the cause.

Having consulted our board we all agreed that a contribution to such a worthwhile cause would fit in with our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy (CSR) and hopefully assist Jenny and the ongoing efforts of those dedicated to the lasting memory of the Far East Prisoners of War and advancing knowledge of the suffering endured and sacrifices made by them during their years of captivity in World War II”.

If you would like to find out more about the charity and help remember those who were prisoners of war in the Far East, please visit http://www.cofepow.org.uk/

SRW Group continues to grow within the building services and facilities management market

Boasting more than 20 years’ experience in the mechanical and electrical sector, SRW Group have continued to expand their offering in the building services and facilities management market.

Since January 2014 the SRW Group’s investment and expansion into new sectors has led to more job opportunities and apprenticeships both locally in Leigh and the Greater Manchester area as a whole.

SRW Group researched its customers’ needs and found that clients required comprehensive building and facilities support services, alongside company’s trusted core electrical skills.

Expansion was followed by the creation of several jobs and new relationships with various organisations, including Manchester College, which led to the company taking additional apprentices on board.

Furthermore, to expand the group’s service delivery and maintenance capability, in December 2015 SRW Group acquired established Manchester based company, Anderson & Maloney Ltd, ensuring that SRW Group is able to meet all of its customers’ needs.

To accommodate the ongoing expansion and development of the business SRW Group is also reviewing its existing office and storage facilities with a view to buying new premises this year.

Andy Mazey, head of the Group, says: “Deciding to significantly invest in the infrastructure and personnel, producing a group structure, which incorporated a strategic building services and facilities management operation, was driven by our clients and has paid off.

“We are continuing to grow and can give something back to our community by creating more jobs here in Leigh and the Greater Manchester area.”

Latest News- New Project GMFRS- Bury

SR Waite Group

We are delighted to have secured and commenced the full electrical installation contract at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service’s (GMFRS) multi-million pound development in Wellington Street, Bury.

The new centre will allow fire-fighters to train for every possible incident, including: transport incidents such as tram and train derailments and road collisions; water rescues; incidents involving hazard materials; search and rescue; collapsed buildings; and high-rise building fires.

A large warehouse will be transformed into a community hub, featuring an interactive area for people to visit and learn about fire safety.

Chairman of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Authority, councillor David Acton, said: “It’s taken us years to get to where we are today – from the idea of having a world-class training facility in Bury to the cutting of the first sod.

“The exciting development will allow firefighters from Greater Manchester – and potentially beyond – to train in the most modern and realistic conditions.

“This will help us to ensure that as we continue to reduce the number of fires and incidents we attend through our successful prevention work, we support our firefighters and officers to maintain their skills and experience of dealing with real fires.

“The centre will also provide a fantastic facility for the community where young people inparticular can learn how to protect themselves from fire and other dangers in an exciting and memorable way while gaining an insight into the varied work of GMFRS.”

Commenting on this news Group Managing Director Andy Mazey said:

“We are delighted to have been successful with our bid and appointed as electrical contractor on this project. We recognise its importance and value to the community of Bury and indeed the Greater Manchester region. We look forward to delivering yet another prestigious contract on time and within budget”.
