Duo launch supply firm
New water entrant targets SMEs
The brainchild of Scots entrepreneur Roger Green and digital expert Rich Rankin, Brightwater Services plans to fill a niche in the sector.
The Musselburgh-based firm will target independent businesses in sectors such as retail, services, tourism, hospitality and professional services.
Rich Rankin, managing director, said: “Our research has shown that there is a marked lack of awareness of deregulation in this sector.
“Many business owners don’t think about switching water suppliers, despite the fact that switching your photocopier, phone or broadband supplier is more common.
“For small businesses in particular, where owners are juggling many different jobs, they may simply not have the time to consider switching and how it might save them money while improving their environmental performance by saving water. “
One of Brightwater’s first customers is accountancy firm McDonald Gordon & Co.
