You may already know something about Lanes Group plc. After all, Lanes is the largest privately owned drainage and wastewater utility specialist in the UK, with over 2,200 staff.
And you may even have spotted our fleet of pink (Rubine red, if we were being particular) state-of-the-art vans, tankers and jet vacs out and about, from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
If you don’t know about us, we have three operating brands - Lanes Group, UKDN Waterflow, and AQS Environmental Solutions - and two specialist divisions dedicated to the rail sector and the utilities sector.
Our core services include, but are not limited to:
What you may not know is that Lanes has been around since 1992, expanding steadily and solidly, taking our skills to new markets (like the rail and insurance sectors, for instance) whilst continuing to offer excellence in existing ones.
To find out more about the journey we have been on since 1992, and what it means for Lanes Group as an employer today, visit our history page.
But what is it about Lanes that has made us so successful over the past two decades and beyond? We are driven by our corporate values, which help to create a people-first culture that make Lanes a fantastic environment in which to work.
Those values are innovation, integrity and collaboration. But those three core values cover a huge amount within our organisation - and externally as part of the charity and CSR work we are proud to carry out.
To find out more about the values that underpin every part of the business and what they mean for our employees, visit our values page.
We employ people in 25 offices and depots across the UK. In addition, Lanes has several utility hubs, sites dedicated to delivering framework contract to a number of utility companies across the UK including Thames, Severn Trent, Anglian, Northumbrian Water and Scottish Water.

Our people are our most valuable asset - and it is thanks to our amazing employees that Lanes is admired throughout the drainage industry.
