West Midlands HSL Compliance has acquired Plexus Innovation to strengthen its water safety services.

The firm assists clients in meeting health and safety regulations and ensuring safe living and working environments.

In addition to water safety services such as Legionella compliance and water treatment, HSL also provides support for other building safety needs, including fire safety, hazardous materials management, and various environmental health and safety services.

Plexus Innovation, based in Durham, specialises in utilising technology to develop customised remote monitoring solutions, a crucial aspect of the water safety industry.

With Plexus Innovation in the HSL family, we can continue to offer the best solutions to our clients who have entrusted HSL with the safety of their staff and customers.”

This technology will enable HSL to remotely monitor clients’ water assets accurately, promptly alerting them to any issues and empowering their expert engineers to take targeted action to resolve them.
