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…
“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.”

“We were impressed with the standard of communication throughout the work scope and having a dedicated project manager was invaluable.
Bartech’s engineering capabilities, along with the communication and overall management of the job were faultless.”
“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.”

How did working with Bartech benefit you / your company on this project?
“When a fault was found with the water cooler adaptor plate, a new part was sourced and sent out to the platform the following day. This meant the crane could be returned to service as planned and therefore no downtime experienced.”
What were you most impressed with working with Bartech?
“The technical knowledge and speed of sourcing the required part. The platform also commented positively on the work ethic of the engineer on the job.”
Steven Bain ~ EnerMech
“One of the most impressive aspects Taqa found with Bartech was there response time.
A recovery plan to get P-7230 returned to service was quickly established and implemented. Bartech were extremely flexible and fully onboard with all of Taqa’s requirements.
Bartech meet and exceeded our expectations during this intervention.
We are hopeful that this level of service can be maintained & look forward to working with Bartech in the future.”
