We love talking to our members about what they do and how they’ve overcome challenges in business. Plus, we also like to find out why they love North Tyneside as a place to do business. We’ve been chatting to Julian at Client Inspection Services.
Tell us a little more about the business
Client Inspection Services ltd was founded in 2018 by Julian Firth and long-term friend David Daley. Between them they have over 20 years’ experience with in the oil and gas industry.
The company was formed to support the industry with our unique services including third party inspection surrounding industrial coatings / Passive Fire Protection and CUI related issues.
We have also developed an Asset Integrity Management system (A.I.M) to support both the down stream and up stream elements of the business. The database is currently temporarily on hold at present. We invested heavily in state of the art equipment in the form of an R.O.V to carry out tank inspections looking to put our selves out there and ahead of our competitors.
How has the business adapted the operation or workplace?
Not resting on our laurels, we decided to march on and extend C.I.S adding another arm to the business in the form of pressure washing / chemical cleaning solution to a vast array of industries both domestic and commercial.
We have seen steady growth so far which has seen us carry out the following scopes of work but not limited to: Pressure washing / Resending and application of sealant to the public’s driveways, Patios etc. & Pressure washing decked areas decking areas and UPVC and Graffiti removal.
We have seen an excellent response from businesses and growth with the chemical cleaning aspect. Most recently we have just completed a circa 300m2 of pressure washing to the external grounds of the church of the holy name locate at Bensham Gateshead also a full chemical clean to the internal aspect of the church in readiness for Reopening to the public.
We have further chemical cleaning planned for a reputable hair and makeup studio (Lisa Jones Hair and Makeup) a Yoga studio (The Modern Yoga Studio) and (Holistic treatments) all of which are in the Gosforth area.
