Article Date: 19th July 2017

Evesham based JM contracting have been announced by UK pipe seal manufacturers VIP Polymers Ltd as an approved installer of the VIP-WECO trenchless pipe repair seal. With over 40 years’ experience of pipeline installation and renovation, JM will utilise their highly skilled team to perform VIP-WECO installations both in the UK and Internationally. 

Managing Director John Mitchell commented “this is a great opportunity for JM Contracting to further develop the range of civil engineering services we already provide to the UK water industry. In conjunction with our Confined Space partners Enviromontel, we hold all of the necessary confined space accreditations required by the UK water companies. 

The VIP-WECO sealing system is one we’re obviously very familiar with having installed several hundred over the years and we’re very happy to be an approved installer for VIP as it allows us to work with a company who can provide the product support needed as each project is bespoke. 

With the trend moving towards no-dig repairs and trenchless rehabilitation of pipelines due to the cost savings the technology brings along with reduced disruption to both services and road/pedestrian traffic, we see some very exciting opportunities within the UK water industry.”

The VIP-WECO trenchless internal repair seal has been proven in water systems Worldwide for over 40 years. With a lifespan of 50+ years, the VIP-WECO provides a permanent mechanical repair for pipes made from ductile iron, GRP, plastic, clay, steel and concrete of any shape and diameters up to DN3500mm. 

Capable of withstanding internal pressure of up to 20 bar and external pressure of up to 2 bar, the VIP-WECO is WRAS approved and fully compliant with BS6920, making it ideally suited to waste and potable water distribution repairs. 
Installed in as little as 40 minutes, the VIP-WECO is also commonly used in end liner applications, sealing between the relined pipe and the original pipe surface.
Business Development Manager for VIP-WECO, Jim Shaw commented “while we are able to provide installation training for the VIP-WECO, partnering with JM provides a great opportunity for VIP to offer our clients the complete trenchless repair installation service.”
