The Company

Since 1846, we’ve been making people healthier and the economy stronger. We’ve served generations of families and will serve generations to come. 

We’re here to have a positive impact on people and the planet for generations. We don’t just give people water - we keep them healthy and help them grow. We work around the clock, testing our water hundreds of times every day. 

We take this same view with our 600 employees, we don’t just give them jobs in water, we keep them healthy and help them grow.

The best of both worlds 

We’re one of the smallest water companies in the UK. Being small means we’re nimble and can achieve things quickly for our customers and our people. 

But while we’re small, we’re also part of a larger family. In June 2021 we became part of the Pennon group, which also owns South West Water and Bournemouth Water.  

This means that as part of our team, you’ll get the best of both worlds – the dynamism and fast pace of a smaller company, along with the security and breadth of opportunity that comes with being part of a large organisation.
