Growth Award entrant – EMS Industries Ltd

A North Staffordshire pump manufacturing company is on track to grow from a £3.5 million annual turnover to a projected £12 million by 2028.

EMS Industries Ltd was established in 1995 and has manufactured pumps and ancillary equipment to support the utilities for many years.

It designs, manufactures and installs pumps for the effective removal of grit and sludge so that waste can be used to generate bioenergy.

Every pump is customised for the individual job to ensure maximum efficiency.

Currently operating out of four separate units, the business is in the process of moving to a new facility in Newcastle-under-Lyme which is set to be fully operational by June 2024.

The relocation will bring all manufacturing and employees under one roof and save around £28,000 per year.

EMS has been led by Staffordshire University MBA alumni Joe Meakin since 2022.

He said: “The growth of the business is purely down to the foresight of the leadership team to diversify from its original industry to new growth sectors for energy production and carbon collection.

“EMS now has customers worldwide operating in biogas, bio methane and grit removal and through collaboration with businesses with similar synergies throughout the world has established the business as world class leaders in pump manufacture and grit removal equipment.

“Continued growth for EMS will bring growth and prosperity to local people and the community, creating jobs and opportunities for varying career paths.”

EMS recruits around three or four apprentices each year and has several employees on senior leadership programmes with Staffordshire University.

It has entered the Growth Award category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
