Separatorsplus was established in 2009 to emphasis the enhanced and diverse range of products and services provided by the highspeed group. Oil separators are fitted to surface water drainage systems to prevent pollution by oils and to protect the environment. The Groundwater Regulations, for example, prohibit discharge into the ground and/or watercourses of pollutants such as hydrocarbons (oils, greases, fuel etc.). Oil Separators separate oil from the water, retaining it safely until it is removed. Oil separators need to be correctly designed, installed and maintained to be fully effective.

Highspeed Lubricants was founded in the late 1960s in York and supplied lubricants and fuel treatments to transport and farming.
COUNTDown, our very effective diesel fuel treatment, launched in the mid-nineties, is in regular use with major retailers, transport fleets, county councils, 'blue light' services and individual motorists. We have 1000s of satisfied users reducing emissions and getting more out of their diesels.
In 2003 our ClearWater washdown water recycling systems were successfully launched responding to the needs of many wishing to bring their facilities up to date and comply with current legislation. With many systems installed around the country and in the Irish Republic, ClearWater is fast becoming the popular washpad water recycling system.
In 1989 the Course Care brand was created and we began supplying specialised lubricants to golf clubs and others in the turf maintenance sector up and down the country. Within a few years we successfully introduced waste management services to these customers.
June 2001 saw a management buyout and the company is now under the ownership of joint MD's, Andrew Vincent and David Mears. Investment and product development followed with the further expansion of our waste management services, the inclusion of a wide range of work, leisure and PPE products under the Course Care brand and the rapid growth of our bunded tank sales operation.
In 2009, and in response to demand, two new divisions were formed and websites created for Waste Away and SeparatorsPlus. To emphasise the now diverse product and services range, Highspeed Lubricants Ltd became Highspeed Group Ltd..
Due to the demand from the Turf Management industry in 2015 the CourseCare brand was expanded from providing its core lubricants, work wear and tools product ranges to encompass our full range of products and services in an easy-to-use online web store.
Bringing the Highspeed Group to where we are today, firmly established as a leading provider of products and services to a array of industry sectors, offering high quality solutions to many legislative issues and we are not stopping here.
Plans are afoot to launch ClearWater Commercial, a hybrid of our tried and tested system that will enable the commercial car washing industry to save much valuable water and prevent groundwater pollution effectively.
As leaders in water treatment we are soon to expand in to rain water harvesting, legionella prevention and safety as well as in expanded our ranges of tools and clothing. Watch this space for more details.
