Everyone is deeply saddened to learn of the recent passing of former employee Sebastian Fisher, at a tragically young age.

Sebastian worked for WJ between 2000 and 2011, and was influential in our growth in the UK and internationally during this time, becoming recognised as one of the leading dewatering exponents in the UK.

We have many fond memories of Seb and send our condolences to Celeste and his family and friends.

Developing Groundwater – In Conjunction with Cranfield University

Much of sub-Saharan Africa is considered to be in “economic water scarcity”, where water infrastructure is either poor or mismanaged despite sufficient water sources being present. One way to help manage this issue and provide long term water security to nations is through the construction of high-quality water wells and boreholes. In response to this, WJ, alongside Cranfield University, the British Drilling Association, and RedR UK, as well as a number of other industry partners, combined to provide the “Developing Groundwater” course during October 2022.
