Steve Vick International (SVI), a leading provider of trenchless repair and replacement solutions for underground pipes, proudly announces the official opening of its new Slough depot. This expansion marks a significant milestone in the company’s growth strategy and its ongoing commitment to providing high-quality service to customers across the UK.

To commemorate the opening of the Slough depot, SVI hosted four open days for the London CMO, along with numerous LDPs from the region including JDT Utilities and Gas Flow, and major water contractors including Clancy.

diameters off 63mm up to 180mm at speeds of up to 25 metres per minute.
