JDP celebrates 45 years in water management

Leading water management specialists JDP is celebrating its 45th anniversary with a period of significant expansion, growth and investment. The company is driving major investment in new branch openings, continuous branch improvement and upgrades, expansion of sales teams, sales office support, technical services and marketing and trade counter staff.

Having grown over 45 years to become one of the UK’s leading and most respected distributors of water management systems, JDP has dedicated manufacturing capabilities through its partners in Tessenderlo Group and close partnerships with the world’s leading manufacturers of drainage, civil engineering and building products. From a nationwide network of branches, JDP provides a one-stop shop for residential, commercial, public and industrial building as well as civil engineering, utilities and agricultural projects.

In this milestone year, managing director Steve McLellan invited local MP Rory Stewart and Val Tarbitt (Cumbria County Council) for a guided tour of JDPs head office facility to learn about JDPs growth and investment plans.

Rory Stewart said:

“JDP are a hugely impressive local business, with a national imprint, who have been one of the most respected distributors of water management systems for almost half a century. It was an honour to visit and to meet staff and management. The best local businesses are those that invest in people, and you can see that the loyalty to their product and work ethos have contributed to create a really strong, sustainable business.”

Steve McLellan said,

“People are at the heart of JDP, and the recent Gold award from Investors in People proves that our values and culture makes the company a great place to work. JDP has been providing quality customer service throughout the UK for the past 45 years.  We would not be able to achieve this success without the ongoing support of our customers and employees.”
