Water Quality Services Ltd (WQS) was incorporated at the beginning of 2009 by Andrew Lelliott, who graduated from Sheffield University with an Honours Degree in Geology. Employment as a Research Technician on ready mixed concrete production was followed by engagement by Morganite Crucible as a Senior Refractory Technologist. Areas of involvement included production development, quality control, and none destructive testing.

More recent employment by Hanson Aggregate at their National Laboratory was as Concrete Product Development Officer. Part of this role was to set up and execute concrete mixing water testing following BS EN 1008:2002 for the companies concrete batching plants. Trade effluent testing for quarries and concrete plants was also undertaken.

The increasing quality of on-site water testing equipment was instrumental in the establishment of WQS, as was the desire to serve commercial clients able to benefit from the expertise and bespoke service offered.

WQS now performs BS EN 1008 mixing water testing or trade effluent testing for four of the five major UK aggregate suppliers, and many smaller producers and independent consultants. Nearly 300 BS EN 1008 test reports were issued in the last year.

WQS is established as a niche supplier of water analysis services where the client always comes first, and an understanding of test requirements and reported data is freely shared with clients.
