Flomatik awarded TalkTalk Network Planning Partner for UFO York

York full fibre roll-out

In late 2017, Flomatik was awarded a contract as TalkTalk’s Network Planning partner for York’s Ultra Fibre Optic program.

Having successfully completed an initial build phase in York passing ~16,000 premises, and with a solid and growing base of customers, TalkTalk’s objective is to complete the fibre rollout, adding approximately 40,000 further premises.

Flomatik is supporting TalkTalk’s ambition to be a disruptive and challenging force in the UK full-fibre broadband market. As an experienced planning partner, Flomatik is working with TalkTalk to drive down cost and complexity during the planning and build phases, leveraging the latest Ofcom remedies, planning software innovations and construction techniques.

Following initial consultancy, which helped TalkTalk to develop their technical approaches, plan and specifications, Flomatik is undertaking all network planning works in York and supporting TalkTalk’s build partner in the delivery of a class-leading Next Generation, 1Gbps Ultra Fibre Optic network in the city.

Paul Crane, Head of Ultrafast Engagement and Rollout for TalkTalk, commented: “We are very pleased with the success of UFO in York so far. Our customers are amazed at what they can do with their ultrafast connections – streaming HD TV without buffering, playing games in real time with people on the other side of the world, or simply enabling every member of the family to be online at the same time.”

reels

At Flomatik we’re committed to the ‘Life Cycle Perspective’ of the materials we use and the impact our waste has on the environment.

So our Birmingham office were delighted to be able to upcycle our waste and support a local Lichfield charity. The Saxon Hill Craft Barn is a resource and recycling centre, providing work based learning opportunities for young people and adults with physical and learning difficulties. Maria Pallett, Store Manager, commented this week: “I would like to say thank you for the three pallets of cable reels, they were very well received and consequently we had a lucrative weekend at the Craft Barn.”

We’re aiming to become a regular supplier of items such as foam, plastic tubing and wire cables for future upcycling fundraising projects at the Barn while lowering our carbon footprint.

For further information about supplying community recycling initiatives please contact Bryan Hughes or Katherine Ellis in our Minworth office.

Flomatik appoints Environmental Champion

Katherine Environmental

Flomatik were delighted to pass the final stage audit and receive certification for the ISO14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) standard at the beginning of September.

ISO 14001 supports Flomatik’s ongoing commitment to our own, and our global partners’, corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies.

As part of this accreditation, Katherine Ellis has stepped forward to be our Environmental Champion. Katherine, on the GIS team in Minworth, (and Flomatik 5-a-sider), has welcomed the challenge.

One of her responsibilities is to set objectives and achieve targets for Flomatik to reduce, reuse and recycle. The first of which will be to raise awareness across both Birmingham and Fareham offices with an internal marketing campaign for reducing waste.

We look forward to seeing the results over time, and welcome other ideas that Katherine may initiate in her role as Environmental Champion.

Pictured above: Katherine Ellis and Aaron Collins at our Birmingham facility.
