The Cambridgeshire-based manufacturer successfully secured a framework supply contract after Portsmouth Water assessed competitive products and bids during their extensive tender process.
GPS PE Pipe Systems have been supplying Portsmouth Water for over eight years on various short-term contracts. The new agreement has seen a move to a longer three-year initial period, followed by options to renew thereafter. GPS will be supplying all of the Portsmouth Water’s PE requirements comprising of potable PE blue and non-potable black pipes, and an extensive range of associated fittings including DuraFuse electrofusion fittings.
Also incorporated in the contract is Protecta-Line, the original and most extensive UK manufactured barrier pipe system for brownfield sites and contaminated land, and the new Excel 3c pipe, the unique, Secretary of State approved solution to negate the need for the lengthy pipe pre-chlorination process prior to installation of potable water pipes.

It shows recognition of our technical expertise and product innovation, and will further reinforce our position as the leading supplier of PE pipe systems in the South of England.
