INTRODUCTION TO ESC GROUP
ESC have been designing and producing sheet piles since the late 1980’s, and are now a leading manufacturer of cold formed sheet piles, supplying a global network. The Group now has production facilities in Malaysia, China and The United Arab Emirates. Production times are fast and product quality guaranteed.
The objective of the ESC Group is to use our wide range of expertise to provide customers with efficient and quality products and services that meet their stated and implied requirements.
The ESC approach to sheet piling is orientated on the customers requirements. ESC believe that simply supplying a product is insufficient, therefore the level of support a customer receives when they are considering purchasing ESC products or products from partner mills of ESC’s is unprecedented. This ranges from general advise on the Client’s options to full engineering support and design, and includes necessary accessories such as painting, tie rods and other items associated with sheet piling works. ESC refer to this as a sheet piling solution.
THE ESC SHEET PILING SOLUTION
A cornerstone of the ESC approach has always been Sheet Pile Solutions, and that remains as true today as it was when the company started. ESC recognize that each project is unique, with it’s own set of challenges. Often the Client may not be fully aware of their options, so ESC try and establish a dialogue in order to gain full understanding of the requirements. From this, a solution is formulated.
A sheet pile solution is a performance based package that includes all the elements essential to provide the client with a complete solution to their sheet pile requirements, rather than just supplying a product.
Simply put, rather than just selling sheet piles, ESC consider the Client’s needs from all aspects, and then provide a solution to meet those needs. This may include engineering design, corrosion control, construction issues, planning or simply general advise.
ESC has also technical relationships with Chinese, American and Japanese steel mills. ESC conducts engineering and marketing in conjunction with these mills and as a result ESC now has the ability to offer a wide range of hot rolled sheet piles for the market place.
ESC truly has become one of the world’s leading “Sheet Piling Solutions Providers” with the addition of the hot rolled sheet piles to the ESC scope of business.
All sheet piling requirements anywhere in the world can be handled by ESC and its teams of engineers and agents.
