When blocked drains and sewers cause pollution incidents, Anglian Water and Thames Water call on companies like JK Environmental to clean up the mess. The Hertfordshire company, founded by childhood friends Tony Roach and Paul Miller and named after their wives Julie and Karen, has a fleet of 36 specialist tankers to clean up everything from blocked pipelines to chemical tankers that have crashed on a motorway. Started in 1997 with one tanker hired for £500 on a credit card, the company has grown sales 90% a year from £659,000 in 1998 to £4.5m in 2001, when it had 33 staff.
