MTD International B.V.
MTD supplies high end products and services for the construction of temporary water infrastructures, with an excellent service provided by her dedicated and experienced personnel.
The contract with Rio 2016 was signed on January 22, 2016. The race to the Opening Ceremony on August 5 started for our project team. We hired 100 employees (80% was locally recruited inexperienced staff), rented an office/warehouse, and took care of lots of other things like housing, equipment shipping. We visited all venues, made designs and execute the temporary water infrastructure at 70 different Olympic venues on time (non- and competition venues, sponsor- and country houses). A project that normally takes 12 months was realized in 6 months!
9 days before the opening, we signed an additional contract for drinking water supply and wastewater removal at all the water buffer bags. Again a big challenge but properly executed on time.
Our water filter improvement units secured safe drinking water for the visitors, athletes and animals. We are proud to say that nobody got sick thanks to drinking MTD water.
In October, everything was dismantled and MTD went back in business as usual with realizing their projects worldwide.

School Lettings Solutions
Thousands of school sports halls, pitches and classrooms sit empty on evenings and weekends. At the same time, sports groups are desperate for affordable places to hold their activities. The solution seemed obvious to entrepreneurs Scott Warrington and Paul Andrews, who set up School Lettings Solutions (SLS).
It works with schools, academies and colleges to manage the hiring out of their facilities, at zero cost to the schools. The benefits are two-fold, enabling schools to generate vital income, while providing venues for clubs.
SLS now works with 120 schools and has 7,000 hirers on its books who have been able to make use of facilities across the country. This represents hundreds of thousands of people taking part in community groups on a regular basis through these partnerships. The company is working with national partners like Clubbercise, Little Kickers and Total Gymnastics.
SLS is so committed to encouraging participation in sport, that the company actively supports hirers as well as schools by providing free marketing support to ensure groups grow and stay in the local area.
With eyes on reaching the 200 sites milestone by summer 2018, School Lettings Solutions now has ambitions to be the biggest leisure provider in the country.
