This week’s hot property for #madeinsandwell Monday is Lord Combustion Services Ltd, based on Dudley Road East in Oldbury.
With 35 years of experience, this West Midlands business may well have designed, installed or maintained the heating and hot water system in your school, leisure centre, local court or government office.
Founded in 1982, Lord Combustion Services started life commissioning and servicing gas and oil fired equipment. Over the last 35 years, the company has diversified into all types of mechanical and electrical building services, including complete plant design and installation, as well as delivering a 24-hour breakdown service. The team prides itself on providing economic, efficient, sustainable and innovative solutions for clients.
Stuart Smith, managing director, said: “Lord Combustion Services has a reputation for high quality, service and integrity – a reputation built by and maintained by our staff.
“Our workforce are all directly employed, with many having given over 30 years’ service, and this in-house knowledge and experience enables our technical managers and field engineers to efficiently diagnose and solve almost any problem.”
Stuart explained that being based in the Black Country, the engineering heart of the UK and only a few miles from the ‘second city’ of Birmingham, is extremely advantageous.
“The excellent transport links and partnerships with local suppliers enable us to obtain plant and equipment quickly, and to reach our clients within the shortest possible response times,” he said.
Stuart also believes that being a member of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce helps the company integrate with the local business community. This desire to contribute to the region was recently acknowledged by the government’s Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. The business was given a bronze award for offering training placements and employment to ex-armed forces personnel.
While Lord Combustion Services is proud to celebrate the success of the last 35 years, the company remains committed to embracing technological developments and continuing to help the business evolve. Renewable energy, remote monitoring, GPS tracking, hybrid vehicles and real-time data capture all play a part in Lord’s plans for the future, ensuring that its clients can afford to turn up the heat without it costing the earth in either sense.
