WATER MATTERS - An Innovative Response
Established ten years ago, Response Group has developed into
one of Ireland's leading providers of water and wastewater treatment
The company specialises in the design, build and operation
of water and wastewater treatment plants for both the private and
public sectors throughout the country. Operating from sites in Cork,
Charleville, Carlow and Donegal - and with with an overseas operation
in Scotland - the Response Group currently employs over 400
people with a turnover of €30 million recorded last year.
Response Group started out as a provider of preventative
maintenance and operating contracts on treatment plants and
Over time, however, the company has, in addition, evolved
into undertaking design, build and operate (DBO) contracts
on large scale industrial and municipal plants.
Response Group now offers turnkey solutions across
the full range of water management requirements from drinking
water to the treatment of wastewater and industrial effluent.
Response Group has proved highly adept at being able to identify
and develop the most innovative technologies for water management.
For example, it completed the successful installation of a new UV
disinfection system to tackle the cryptosporidium outbreak at the
Terryland water treatment plant in County Galway.
Other recent project wins for Response Group include
the Holmestown Leachate Treatment Plant in County Wexford
and the Shannon Airport Sewerage Scheme.
Response Group aims to develop long-term relationships
with its clients and its success in this regard is reflected
in the level of operating and maintenance contracts the company
performs - both on the plants it has manufactured and those
supplied by others. Indeed, it is the repeat business won
by the company that has allowed it to grow from a start-up
business to become a leader in its field in just ten years.
Response Group also supplies products to meet
the daily requirements of treatment plants, which are run by local
authorities and industry. Indeed, The company significantly enhanced
this aspect of its business - along with its operations expertise
- with last year's acquisition of CSL - a key service and maintenance
company in the water and wastewater industry.
Carlow-based CSL has now been integrated with Response
Group's existing operations and maintenance division. The acquisition
has increased the scale of Response Group by about 20%.
Like Response Group, CSL also has a strong
track record of introducing new technology to the Irish market in
order to improve efficiency and productivity. These innovations
include a satellite-based monitoring system, AMR (drive-by) water
meter reading systems, detection of gas build-up in landfills and
personal protection in hazardous industrial environments.
An overriding emphasis on efficiency and reducing costs is central
to the company's development strategy. Response Group has
now developed the necessary critical mass to become a major player
within the Irish water management and environmental services market.
