Leep Utilities doubles vehicle fleet to support recruitment and growth
To support its ongoing growth and recruitment drive for engineers in both water and electricity
sectors, Leep Utilities has just doubled its vehicle fleet.
A leading owner and operator of last-mile utility networks across the UK, Leep has boosted its
team’s headcount by 12 in the last quarter alone, and by 47 during the last financial year. It’s also
recently reported its most successful trading year since its inception six years ago.
The acquisition of these new vans will enable its highly skilled team of water and electricity
engineers to service and monitor even more networks on construction sites and commercial and
housing developments nationwide.
All new Leep vehicles feature the firm’s ‘Straightforward Connections’ strapline – highlighting its
breadth of expertise and true multi-utility adoption offering – and are fully equipped to enable the
most efficient and safe customer service delivery.
Leep Utilities has a workforce of over 120, made up of engineers and support staff working across
multiple functions. To accommodate its growing headcount, the company recently moved into new
larger office premises in Salford. It also has a southern base in Reading, Berkshire.
Louise Manfredi, CEO of Leep Utilities, said: “Not only are we doubling our fleet of vehicles with
these new additions, but we’re also marking yet another huge milestone for the company and our
future strategic direction. We can’t wait for our water and electricity engineers to take them on the
road, to service our growing number of customers.
“There’s been a significant step change in our scale, operations and performance in recent years,
which has led to our ongoing recruitment drive and investment in these new vehicles. We’re
growing at a substantial rate and these new vans will further support our capabilities and customer
services to accelerate it further.”
Leep began its journey as a small team of ten working out of a small, serviced
office in Media City, which is where the vans were unveiled.
Trevor Sargent, Head of Electrical Connections in the UK, for Leep Utilities said: “Our team has
grown substantially in recent months – and we’re making major headway with both water and
electricity projects – which is why we’ve invested in these new vehicles.
“We’re now working within a wider market, to offer all UK developers, contractors and consultants a
flexible last-mile utility solution for new residential, commercial and mixed-use developments –
whether that’s on electricity, water or heating networks, or a combination of them all. We’re all very
excited about what our future holds and these new vans will literally help us to drive our ambitious
growth strategy forward.”
