10 Years of Subscan UDS

Jet Vac Tanker Hire

We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby! 

Subscan UDS began life in 2012, as a drain cleaning and repair specialist, employing just 10 staff, based at our old offices on Intercity Way in Bramley, Leeds.

By 2019 we had outgrown our offices in Bramley and moved into our new head office at Subscan House, on the outskirts of Leeds City Centre on Whitehall Road.  Now operating from a prime position, we were able to offer total national coverage to all our clients.  Allowing us to increase our already impressive response times to various areas of the country.  Investing our time in bigger projects on a more regularly basis across the whole of the UK.

During this time there had also been significant growth across our utility, drainage and survey divisions and we added the RISQS accreditation to our already impressive portfolio, allowing Subscan to provide extensive trackside drainage and surveying services for our valued clients across the whole of the UK rail network.

Today, with over 150 staff, Subscan UDS is one of the leading integrated survey and drainage specialist contractors throughout the country, providing the highest quality utility, drainage, and survey service and solutions to clients across a variety of industries. We are immensely proud of our outstanding customer service and of our in-house management, staff and on-site team leaders and engineers, because without their tireless effort and continuous work ethic over the past 10 years, none of our recent expansion and business growth would have been possible.

Investing in the Future

During the past 2 years Subscan UDS have seen multi million pound business investment and expansion.  Purchasing new vehicles and tankers, the very latest drainage and remediation equipment plus land and utility mapping technology to ensure we continue to be a driving force in the utilities, drainage and surveying sectors.

We have also expanded our business operations into the Midlands area of the UK, with our recent purchase of our new hub based at Unit 2, Nelsons Court, Pontefract Street, Derby DE24 8JD.  As a result, this has allowed Subscan to be much closer to our customers within the Midlands and surrounding areas, which will aid us in serving them better with our comprehensive, integrated utility, drainage, and surveying services.

Drainage Division

Within our drainage division of the company, we have heavily invested in new tankers, vehicles and equipment including the purchase of multiple new DAF Whale Gully Tankers, Bucher Jet Vac Recycling Tankers, Flexline Tankers, Reactive Vans with JetChem Jetting Systems and additional CCTV surveying equipment.

Remediation Division

Our remediation division has seen recent investment in new vehicles and robotic cutting machinery.  Improving our capabilities regarding drain repair, excavation, and installation.

Land and Utility Division

We have also seen heavy investment within our Underground Utility and Land Surveying departments.  Adding a new fleet of vehicles, the latest land surveying technology, and the recent purchase of multiple MALA Easy Locator Core GPR’s.  The first product worldwide using intelligent real-time interpretation support for utility locating.

Our business investment and expansion has also seen the fast-paced recruitment of new in-house and on-site management, staff, and engineers to ensure we continue to build on the recent successes we have already achieved.  As a result, the past 12 months has seen an incredible growth within the company, and it is our aim to continue to go from strength to strength over the coming years.

Moving into 2023

Finally, as 2023 began, we have had a company restructuring, bringing on-board several new professionals including Keith Ferris as our new Managing Director.  Ensuring we can offer our valued commercial and domestic clients, old and new, the absolute highest quality, most cost-effective service possible.

We see 2023 as being another exceptionally busy and successful year for Subscan UDS, as we take the next step in becoming the leading name in the industry.
