Castle to “merge’’ with Affinity for Business

Castle Water has announced a "merger" with Affinity for Business from 1 April.

Affinity for Business’ 50,000 customers will join Castle’s 350,000 in the merged portfolio. Castle said the deal would “allow more efficient billing, reduced administration and improved customer service for the many Affinity for Business customers already served by Castle Water” – a product of geography for many since Castle acquired Thames Water’s business customer base.

Blairgowrie-headquartered Castle will add Affinity for Business’ Welwyn Garden City base to its regional office portfolio, which already includes London, Leeds, Ayr and Portsmouth.

Affinity for Business staff are expected to be transferred over.
