Tor applies for business retail supply and sewerage licence with eye on South West

Exeter-based Tor Water has applied for a business supply and sewerage licence. In its business plan synopsis, privately funded Tor said “It will be focussing on the South West of England and seeks to provide an unsurpassed level of customer service at a competitive price to the consumer.”

The company was founded in February last year and is owned by Jiro Mcdonald Wilson who is the only director with the firm.

Wilson said in his Linkedin profile he is "building Tor Water around a team who are experts in what they do and how they do it."

He added: "Tor Water is all about good practices which means I put my people first because how are my customers ever going to be happy if the service isn't first class. We will deliver the best in terms of ethics, practices and foster excellence in all shapes and sizes."
