EWS celebrates 40 years
Reflecting on the 40-year history of EWS, John Wright.
EWS, part of the Eaton-Williams group of companies, has reached a major milestone with the celebration of 40 years in the industry. One of its first customers was ICL, when EWS was providing support for Eaton-Williams when it first moved to Edenbridge in Kent. The company has changed dramatically since the swinging sixties and grown organically into one of the UK’s leading specialist service and maintenance companies. John Wright, general manager with EWS, says, ‘EWS’s strength lies in the calibre and skill set of its engineers, who can deliver an extensive programme of maintenance for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment for a wide range of customers — all backed up with 24/7 support.’ Through a comprehensive planned preventive maintenance programme, customers benefit from a service that aims to optimise performance levels, reduces energy consumption, fuel bills and service charges. ‘The more efficiently a plant operates, the more cost-effective it is to run,’ says John Wright. No two contracts are the same, and each customer benefits from a responsive service tailored specifically to meet their needs. EWS engineers are based across the UK, providing routine and emergency services round the clock via the EWS call centre. For customers with more demanding requirements, residential services engineers are available to ensure optimum operating efficiency. As building requirements have become more sophisticated over the last 40 years, EWS has kept pace and can provide solutions for the most demanding of environments. Customers can also source a full building-services contract and ad hoc customises solutions from EWS’s own M&E services company.
