Anglian Water Named Company Of The Year

The latest Water Industry Awards have been held in Birmingham and supplier Anglian Water has enjoyed some serious success, taking home three gongs including the much-coveted Water Company of the Year award.


It also took home Health & Safety Initiative of the Year and Wastewater Innovation Project of the year, a new category introduced in 2019. The health and safety accolade was awarded because the company was able to demonstrate a robust, innovative and high-quality safety management system, as well as evidence of performance in this area that went beyond statutory requirements.


CEO of the water supplier Peter Simpson commented on the company’s success, saying: “We are delighted to have picked up these three awards last night and to take home the Water Company of the Year is a real honour.


“The challenges that face the industry are greater than they have ever been – from climate change and environmental threats to growth and the engineering skills gap, all alongside continuing to deliver the high level of efficient service our customers expect. Everyone at Anglian Water including our partners and contractors, are working extremely hard to meet these challenges. This award is for every one of them.”


The last 12 months have been quite the success story for Anglian Water, with the supplier also being named the best place to work in the UK by Glassdoor, as well as being named Utility of the Year at the end of 2018.


Do you want to switch water supplier?


Did you know that, thanks to deregulation of the English retail water market, you can now choose which water supplier you want to serve your needs? If you’re unhappy with the service you’re receiving from your current supplier or have started to wonder if you could save money by enjoying better rates somewhere else, it might be time to consider switching.


The main reasons that companies choose to switch include making cost savings thanks to better tariffs, better service and more accurate billing, needing a supplier that specialises in services for your operational needs, consolidating their entire water supply across multiple sites with a single supplier and taking advantage of value-added extras on top of the typical water supply and wastewater services.


The deregulated market is now open to 1.2 million businesses, charities and public sector organisations throughout England. In order to be able to switch, you need to have at least one operating site in England or Scotland. At the moment, businesses or premises in Wales and Northern Ireland are still unable to change.


Since deregulation, more retail suppliers have entered the market so there’s more choice than ever but it can be hard to work out which is the best for you and your company, so get in touch with H20 Building Services if you need some help navigating your way through the decisions you’ll have to make.
