NIA GRIFFITH MP and members of the Llanelli Flood Forum recently visited Total Flood Solutions in the Gate Business Park in Dafen.
Nia Griffith MP said: “We are very lucky to have here in Llanelli a world class business leader Total Flood Solutions, offering high tech innovative flooding solutions to the world. On the day that we visited, we saw the manufacture of flood-proof doors, hinges and windows, as well as bomb-proof doors being sent to Thailand, and, while we were there, we saw a huge tank fill with water and flood-proof windows holding it back.
“I was very impressed, particularly with the research and development at the state-of-the-art test facility. Whilst it is important to protect property in this way, and insurance and mortgage companies should recognise the protection these products give, local authorities have a duty to discourage building in a flood plain or where development could increase risk to existing properties.”
Managing Director, Neil McDermid, said: “When it comes to flood defence, we are the experts. We employ highly-skilled staff to cover every element of flood defence, from flood risk assessment and consultancy through to the design, manufacture and installation of custom-built flood defence products. It was a pleasure to show Nia Griffith MP and Llanelli Flood Forum Members what we offer to the flood prevention industry.”
