Castle Water last week announced it had secured recommended supplier status for a further multi-million pound national framework agreement through the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), for the provision of water and wastewater services to the public sector in England.
This is the fourth major CCS framework agreement Castle has secured – the first dates to 2017 when the market opened. The company is now experienced in carrying bulk transfers of English public sector customers.
Castle Water chief, John Reynolds OBE, said: “I am delighted that our relationship with CCS and our CCS customers continues to strengthen. We understand the specific needs of our public sector customers to receive high service standards while achieving real cost savings. Our dedicated public sector team work in partnership with our CCS customers to reduce water costs, support efficiency and help to meet environmental and sustainability targets.”
Sam Ulyatt, strategic category commercial director for Crown Commercial Service, said of the water framework: “The agreement is supporting the public sector to receive whole life value in service, and costs reduced on its customers’ water bills, leveraging the buying power of the public sector to support the delivery of efficient and effective public services.”
