Castle Water secures £multi-million contract through Crown Commercial Service
Castle Water has secured a major national contract through the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework for the provision of water and wastewater services to the public sector in England.
The first water retailer to successfully carry out the bulk transfer of English customers in Portsmouth, London and the Thames Valley, Castle has been at the forefront of innovation in the UK water market. The company will now extend its services to supply contracts for up to three years to select public sector customers nationally, including those located in Yorkshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
John Reynolds, Chief Executive of Castle Water, said: “As the UK’s leading independent water retailer, we supply hundreds of thousands of businesses, charities and public bodies throughout England and Scotland. We see this as a further opportunity to use our expertise in delivering best value and significant cost savings for our growing number of public sector customers in the new competitive market.”
Sam Ulyatt, Strategic Category Commercial Director for Crown Commercial Service, said: “In April we brought the largest public sector water framework agreement to the UK market. The agreement will eventually support the public sector to save £20 million on its water bill, leveraging the buying power of the public sector to support the delivery of efficient and effective public services.”
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.
