Expansion leads to relocation
Thames Water moves from capital to Linlithgow
Thames Water Commercial Services (TWCS) is moving from Edinburgh into larger premises in Mill Road Enterprise Park at Linlithgow Bridge.
The firm is part of the Thames Water Group and now has in excess of 1,300 sites on its books – exceeding the target it set 12 months ago to double the number of commercial sites it manages in Scotland.
Alan Munro, who heads the Scottish TWCS team, believes 2016 could be its biggest year yet, as it secures more of the £330 million non-household retail market in Scotland.
From 2017, non-household customers in England will also be able to choose their water supplier, which is expected to see much discussion and analysis north and south of the Border.
Mr Munro said: “2015 saw us rapidly grow our team in order to tap into the huge demand that we knew was out there.
“It is this potential that encouraged us to move out of Edinburgh and into a new base in Linlithgow which not only fulfils our need to manage for greater growth, but allows us to better support businesses across Scotland because of its excellent central belt location.”
TWCS has been operating in Scotland for just under three years, attracting a customer base across banking, finance, hotels, leisure, commercial, education and retail sectors.
