Supporting the water and wastewater industry throughout the UK, we specialise in the monitoring, maintenance and life extension of critical assets including pumps and motors in pumping stations, distribution networks and treatment plants.



Houghton International works with water companies across the UK to maintain their rotating assets and improve the performance and efficiency of their water networks. Our work includes pump repairs, and the maintenance of motors in pumping stations, distribution networks and treatment plants.

From standard overhaul of a peps or blower motor to a full rewind and restoration of a large borehole pump and motor system, our diverse range of operations, across all OEMs, enables customers to engage one supplier to service their full array of equipment benefiting from improved efficiency and increased cost control. Ongoing condition monitoring and vibration analysis is also provided to help plan maintained activity and reduce any unexpected failures.

With a long history of working in the water industry, we offer a range of services to support maintenance engineers in this field. Our site services team is multi-disciplined and works on a range of assets including pumps, motors and gearboxes, providing assistance with removal and reinstallation as well as in situ testing and condition assessment to recommend the best course of action.

Accredited to the latest standards and with one of the largest burn off stoves in the UK, our workshop is fully equipped to service the full spectrum of rotating machines operated in the water industry.

Underpinned by our 24/7 emergency repair service and combined with our in house coil manufacture facilities, large machine capabilities and dynamic motor and pump testing equipment, we are ideally placed to take on special projects, emergency repairs and ongoing maintenance frameworks.

Our engineers excel on complex projects where obsolescence is an issue and can reverse engineer failing pump parts and motor windings, restoring and often improving, the performance of aged machines to increase efficiency and reduce running costs. We can also support the design and implementation of new systems providing specialist advice on how best to achieve system specific outcomes.

Combining our many years of experience with the latest 3D CAD technologies and high-quality processes, we ensure that all work is carried out to the highest standards and fully tested prior to reinstallation, providing performance analysis and pump curves as required for added assurance.

Get in touch to find out more about how we can improve the efficiency of your systems and work together to maximise the ROI of your maintenance investment.
