Thames Water Granted Licenses to Sell Across the U.K., PA Says

Thames Water, the U.K.’s largest water supplier, has been granted licenses to sell to businesses throughout England, Wales and Scotland, the Press Association reported, citing the company’s commercial services director.

The entry of Kemble Water Holdings Ltd.’s Thames Water unit, which serves 14 million mainly residential customers in London and other parts of the Home Counties, means the private company may plan to target high-use businesses in England and Wales such as breweries and industry, competing on price to take revenue from water suppliers elsewhere in the U.K., PA said.
