Celebrating 20 years Commercial Diving

Commercial & Specialised Diving celebrated their 20th anniversary this month – quite an achievement in these changing times! We believe it is down to the company’s dedication to pro-active customer service coupled with the dynamism to develop and implement new methods of working and embrace the latest technology.

Company founder and MD Phil Richards set up the company 20 years ago to combine his two passions of engineering and diving – and since then, year on year, it has grown in strength and expertise.

Our dive teams have a wealth of experience in many fields of diving with backgrounds from the offshore industry, military and rescue services, as well as the underwater construction industry. This experience is put to good use across our three division of Civil & Marine, Swimming Pools and Film & TV.

Our success as a company is also down to you, our clients, some of whom have been with us right from the very start. So a big thank you from CSD, and we look forward to the future and seeing where the next 20 years will take us!

In the early days equipment and procedures were rather different to todays – as this photo of Phil Richards 20 years ago illustrates!
