Bartech’s MD Paul Bleck is a member of Colchester Ambassadors, a group of business leaders who believe passionately about the opportunities that Colchester presents to inward investors and relocating businesses as well as to existing organisations within the town.
With one of the fastest growing populations and economies in the UK, Colchester has a highly educated and skilled workforce and a pro-active, forward-thinking outlook.
The Colchester Ambassadors have identified four key opportunities that together make the town an unbeatable proposition:
During an interview, with the Ambassadors, Paul was asked;
What are the advantages of being a Colchester-based business?
“Companies like Paxman Diesels and Colchester Lathes have ensured a very strong engineering heritage in Colchester, which has continued with many ex-army engineers in the area. This army history has also given an underlying strength of respect, discipline and community.
As a location, Colchester provides easy access to engines in use as standby generators in London as well as many marine applications around the East Anglian coastline.”

A few words from Paul as to what makes Colchester the perfect place for a business headquarters…
“Well done, it is great to see the final “three for three, FYFP 1, De-Sup Station and CW valve” risk mitigations now delivered safely before year end.
Can I reinforce and recognise the drive, team work and clear communications during the last month especially.
This rounds off a very positive risk mitigation year for Team Hartlepool and the wider support provided via CTO and the Supply Chain with 22 oo 23 Key Deliverables completed and handed back to the operations teams.”

“Many thanks for your help and cooperation, most refreshing to find a business that actually puts the customer first and understands the imperfect world that we operate in.”
“Bartech provided us with a one-stop solution for our Waukesha units.
Our previous supplier had become unreliable so moving to Bartech was a game changer.
We are now confident that parts will arrive on time plus we have access to Bartech’s knowledge and advice…Their wealth of Waukesha experience has been extremely helpful when making decisions on parts. Communicating with Bartech is always a pleasure: they are friendly, approachable, knowledgeable, and always able to deliver on our requests.
Big thank you to: Jamie, Ricky, Robert and Gary.”
Marcus Winfield ~ Shell
“Thanks for the help, and the fact that you were able to keep your promises regarding delivery time etc.
We’ll keep in touch.”
“We have a long term service agreement with Bartech so putting together the work scope was made easy as we have worked with them in the past and know how they work in a professional matter.
All the organisation and spares were taken care of by the project engineer, once this was ready Bartech and CNR had a conference call with the platform to discuss the scope and iron out any issues that may arise during the scope and controls were put in place to prevent issues arising.”
Alan Farquhar ~ CNR Ninian Central Platform
“Bartech professionally delivered on all promised work within schedule.
By utilising the experience and expertise of the Bartech engineers we were able to simultaneously liquidate a number of jobs.
The engineer’s problem-solving ability meant that long-standing issues were corrected.
The technical expertise on this particular fire pump was first class.”
