UKFB welcome members of the Malaysian Government

Earlier this month we were delighted to welcome representatives from the Malaysian government to our headquarters in the UK as part on an exploratory visit for their own flood defence project in Kuala Lumpur.

This significant visit included a trip to our latest installation in Cockermouth where the delegation had the opportunity to view our now fully operational passive flood defence system installed in the town. The group were able to see how the 115m had been successfully installed along the riverside to operate passively, not affecting the aesthetic beauty of this popular tourist spot. This part of the trip caught the attention of local media, with the visit making ripples in the BBC’s local news coverage http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cumbria-23224783

From there they travelled to our headquarters in Worcestershire to understand further about how we function and to see where the products and ideas come from. They were then given insight in to the manufacture of the passive flood defence system on a special factory tour at our west midlands based plant.

By special invitation the group were welcomed to the House of Commons on the second day, accompanied by local MP Peter Luff to discuss flood defence innovations and to highlight the global export achievements and international relations of a UK company.

As a direct result of this visit we will now be working with the Malaysian Government to install the passive flood defence system on at least two initial projects on rivers in both the north and south of the country, as part of the ‘River of Life’ project to improve storm water management in Kuala Lumpur. Several kilometres of this passive solution will be installed to protect vital communities across these rivers.
