Our Vision & Values

Our vision is to be the UK industry leader specialising in complete reinstatement solutions. With an embedded culture of sustainability and innovation, and with a consistent focus on delivering service excellence, we strive to continuously improve our performance aiming for exceptional quality, right first time solutions, safely, on time, every time.

We work collaboratively with our clients, partners, highway authorities and others, adopting a one team, one goal approach to all our projects. We have built this approach around four key values:

  • Trusting: Doing what we say
  • Communicating: In an honest and respectful manner
  • Listening: With an open mind
  • Working together equally: regardless of status.

We call this The SQS Way. We complete over 100,000 jobs every year with around 99% achieving defect free status.


Our vision is to be the industry leader. That doesn’t mean we will be the biggest, but to achieve our vision it does mean we must be the best! Being the best at everything we do. Putting our ‘One Team, One Goal’ culture and values into practice, every job, every day! ‘SIMPLY  BETTER’it’s the SQS way.


Like many of today’s leading organisations, at SQS we have a strong company culture. We have our Values which help shape the way we work and can be described as our company ‘personality’.

The SQS Way encourages our people to be creative and take measured risks. We accept people will occasionally get things wrong but have a strong learning ethos, seeking to develop and learn from all that we do through our Own Goal Policy.

Our culture is represented by STAN and MORA our visual leaders. STAN provides us with our principles; these are our guiding rules that we want you to apply in everything you do.

This is about HOW you get the job done. MORA provides us with, standards, clear communication and direction to enable us to achieve our ultimate goal, with a ‘can do, will do’ attitude.

Being part of SQS is to be part of a great team. We are a family based company that recognises the unique contribution of every person to the success of our business. Everyone at SQS has the opportunity to fulfil their potential and make a positive difference to our clients and the communities we serve.
