Business Stream wins water retail deal with airports group
Business Stream has secured new water supply and wastewater services contracts with AGS Airports, which incorporates Glasgow Airport, Aberdeen International Airport and Southampton Airport.
The two Scottish airports are renewing their contracts, whilst Southampton Airport is a new contract following the opening of the English retail water market last April. The contracts are for three years, and will allow the airports to benefit from Business Stream’s dedicated account management service, providing day-to-day expert support and 24/7 emergency assistance, if required.
Glasgow Airport’s new arrangement also involves the installation of automated meter readings to track water consumption and leak detection surveys to help reduce the airport’s water use.
Maureen Jamieson, group head of procurement, said: “Business Stream’s services and account management support allow us to manage the airport’s water systems smoothly and efficiently. As an organisation committed to reducing our impact on the environment, we’re also taking advantage of their technology and expertise to identify and manage opportunities for cutting water use.”
James Cardwell-Moore, commercial director at Business Stream, said: “Competition in the non-domestic retail market is increasing rapidly, encouraging us as a business to continually improve the service we provide to our customers. We’re delighted that both Glasgow and Aberdeen International Airports will be continuing their partnership with us and that they’ll now be joined by Southampton.”
