Engineers concerned with the health of an expansion joint can now ring a 24 hour emergency response line. The new service from James Walker Townson offers inspection of the problem within 24 hours, anywhere within the UK.
"A failure in an expansion joint can be catastrophic and lead to huge losses in downtime," said Bill Evans, managing director of James Walker Townson. "With our new emergency service, companies can receive a rapid assessment of any problems so they can have the fault remedied as soon as possible."
The service is open to all companies in the UK, not just James Walker Townson customers. The freephone number, 0800 7833022, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
