To meet the rapid development of our business we have expanded our team and business location in the last 12 months. We have expanded our location space from 3,800 sq ft to 11,000 sq ft and moved to new premises – 11 Macklin Avenue, Cowpen Lane Industrial Estate, Billingham, TS23 4BY.  Our team of people has also expanded from 5 to 13 in the last 12 months.  The move to a high specification location has enabled us to accommodate all our employees and provide the potential to grow even more as we look forward to celebrating our 15th Anniversary later this year.

We are specialized in the rental and sales of (ultra) high pressure water jetting and vacuum equipment and we are the official agents for Dynajet – hot water high pressure pumps, TST – body protection wear, NLB (ultra) – high pressure pumps and stockists for Parker – Polyflex high pressure hoses.

Training is also integral to Doornbos and we have a commitment to apprenticeships. Talented students from Teesside are part of our team and have proved themselves to be a fantastic addition.

“Before I started my apprenticeship at Doornbos Equipment, I attended Middlesbrough College studying level 2 & 3 in electrical installation. This gave me a clearer perspective on what I wanted to do as a career which was engineering but not just electrical, I wanted to be involved in all aspects of it. I signed up to NETA training group and got accepted on to their program and shortly afterwards I was approached by Doornbos Equipment and was offered the exact apprenticeship I was looking for. I have now been working for Doornbos Equipment for just over 9 months and have enjoyed every day since. Each day is a challenge and I’m developing a multitude of skills along the way. The best thing about my apprenticeship is that I get to learn and train in a real environment which in my opinion just attending college doesn’t offer.”

“Prior to working at Doornbos Equipment I attended Macmillan academy and gained work experience on the reception desk which inspired me to take business and administration as my career choice. I looked on the apprenticeship website for job openings when I was contacted by the NECC to help me with my search for an apprenticeship. My CV was passed on to Doornbos Equipment where I attended an interview and a 3 day trial which I really enjoyed. My apprentice will shortly end and I will be taken on as a full time employee which I am extremely happy about.”

“We have continued to grow and expand our business and we are in a positive position, investing in the company and its people.”
