International sales manager Sven Breitenfeld said: “Following our launch of new product ranges earlier this year, we have an excellent opportunity to grow our overseas business.

“Countries in Central and South America are developing their infrastructure at a rapid rate. Their cities are growing fast, and that is leading to increased demand for fresh and clean water and huge investment to improve their sewer networks.

“Alongside that, pollution and water issues are on the wider political agendas in those regions, so it is important for us to have a presence there.”
