Year Founded:

SP Holding was established in 1985 by Stephen Holding.  In the early days, the company carried out spot hire with one tractor and several bowsers, to the building and agricultural industries.  This quickly flourished and the business continued to grow, adding other aspects of the business including tankering, transport services, drainage work and plant hire.

Today the company has developed into a major utility and industrial support unit, working with many blue chip companies within the water industry.

As the company has grown into the large organisation it is today, we've always maintained the ‘family-run’ approach we did on day one, with Steve still taking an active approach in the day-to-day running of the business to ensure the same high levels of customer service are maintained.

SP Holding have been providing drainage services to the construction, agricultural and industrial sectors for many years across Shropshire, The Midlands, Mid Wales and beyond.  We provide a full service encompassing jetting/drain clearance, CCTV drain surveys, manhole relining and rehabilitation, tankering, waste removal and disposal, tank cleaning/cleansing and much more.  We also offer services to homeowners in Telford, Shropshire and the West Midlands with blocked drains, full septic tanks and other drainage issues.

SP Holding are renowned for spotting opportunities for improving efficiency and solving problems for customers.  We're always investing in new equipment and coming up with modifications to be able to make the impossible possible.

We also have a strong team here at SP Holding, both in the office and out and about.  We strongly believe in having the right people for the job and providing the correct training to each person to ensure a safe and productive working environment.

Steve Holding started the company in 1985 and has grown it and diversified over the years to make it what it is today.  Steve is a hands on Managing Director and takes an active role in the business day-to-day ensuring that excellent service levels are maintained.  Steve's wife, Tracey, also has large part to play in the business managing the accounts department, so this is a real family business.

Our people are the lifeblood of the business and we have a team of over 60 people both in the office, in the workshops and on the road.

We at the SP Holding Group have a strong belief in developing staff to perform to their potential and making our people feel valued in their contribution to the business.

SP Holding have carried out work for numerous sectors of industry, including construction, utilities, road and civil engineering and industrial companies and manufacturers, as well as to homeowners across Shropshire, Mid Wales, the Midlands and, in many cases, throughout the UK.

SP Holding have worked with some of the biggest names in the construction industry, not only offering drainage services, but also offering plant hire and on site welfare solutions.

For example, for housing developments large or small, we offer CCTV drain surveys to identify any existing drainage systems and help to plan the best drainage scheme for the site.  We can also identify defects and obstructions and repair them as required.  At the same time, we can ensure that any personnel have somewhere clean, dry and comfortable to go for rest periods and will arrange delivery of welfare units and portable toilets to suit, including full set up and any removal of waste from the site.

Domestic Drainage

In addition to the wide range of services on offer to commercial customers, SP Holding has been operating services to residential customers in Telford, Shropshire and the West Midlands for many years, using many of the techniques, equipment and technology available to the commercial sector.

Our 24/7 emergency call-out service is just a phone call away, giving homeowners peace of mind that any problems at their property can be solved by a local, professional team in time to minimise damage, flooding or pollution from blocked or damaged drains and full septic tanks.

We offer the full domestic drainage service including:

  • Drain clearance and cleaning
  • Septic tank installation, maintenance, cleaning and emptying
  • Waste removal and disposal (tankering)
  • CCTV drain surveys

With our close links with local water authorities, we are able to cover a wide area and respond to situations across the Midlands and into Mid Wales.


SP Holding have been working with major utilities organisations for well over a decade, including Severn Trent Water, Yorkshire Water, The Environment Agency, United Utilities and Veolia.

The type of work that we carry out varies from reactive domestic blockages to large capital projects.

We're always looking for innovative ways to solve problems, by identifying more efficient methods using new technology, such as CCTV drain surveys and other trenchless technologies.  This is all whilst never compromising on Health & Safety and delivering best value.
