Bill hopes Hydrochem will be flying high after fighting back from health problems – Podcast

A COMPANY boss is hoping to take his firm to new heights after bouncing back from serious health problems to return to the hot seat.

Bill Abbott set up Hydrochem back in 1987 having spent many years working as a chemical engineer across the Middle East.

Having worked in Saudi Arabia, Oman and Libya as well as Russia, Bill moved into a manager role with a UK water company in Saudi Arabia where he played a key role in helping raise turnover from £100,000 with just two staff on board to an £8m business with a 30-strong team inside two years.

Armed with a wealth of experience, North East-born Bill returned home in 1987 to set up Hydrochem, firstly into a British Steel-owned workshop and then into the firm’s current base in Graythorp Industrial Estate, Hartlepool, which lies just a stone’s throw from Teesside’s industrial heartland.

The business, which specialises in water treatment and boasts the likes of Bannatyne’s, Bourne Leisure and Marriott Hotels on its client list, has had an impressive year so far and has been forced to increase the workforce to reflect a busy order book.

Bill is delighted to see the business progressing so well, not least after facing a personal fight of his own after he was struck down with bowel cancer two years ago.
