EMS has been successfully shortlisted for High Growth Business of the Year and Small Business of the Year at this year’s Sheffield Business Awards. The awards will be taking place at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre Sheffield on Thursday 3rd December 2015.
The company’s aim has been to provide holistic service to industry around their environmental requirements “Industry’s Environmental Partner”. The business also provides advisory services around ISO14001 and permitting to overlay the monitoring and survey services. EMS provides other value-added products, for example data acquisition systems (eDAS: environmental data acquisition system) which give clients immediate and centralised access to crucial environmental compliance data. These are the things that make EMS distinct and the company of choice for industry, and have underpinned the businesses growth.
Industrial clients include food and drink companies (e.g. Walkers, Heinz, Coca Cola), pharmaceutical companies (e.g. Novartis, Boots, Smith and Nephew), energy companies (e.g. SSE, E On, Magnox), the automotive and aeronautical industry (e.g. Honda, Toyota, Rolls Royce), and construction companies (e.g. George Hurst, Clugstons, Palmer Construction).
Within the water industry, EMS provides expert survey services for flow and water quality. This may be at treatment works, in wastewater networks, or in rivers at the interface of the manmade and natural environment. Clients in the water industry include water utilities (e.g. Thames Water, Yorkshire Water) and their capital delivery partners (e.g. Grontmij, Mouchel, Jacobs).
EMS has continuously innovated. Examples include eDAS, StormCatcher, and Virtual Environmental Manager. In 2014 “EMS Innovation” was introduced, with Innovate UK and EU funding and working with Universities and other SMEs. The focus of EMS Innovation is to add value to raw science, and bridge the gap between research and development and commercial goods and services.
EMS’s MD Prof Peter Skipworth says “Being short-listed in two categories for these awards shows how far the company’s come in recent years. It’s a commendation to the team at EMS and is a boost to our continued growth.”
