South Staffordshire

South Staffordshire supplies water to 1.6m households in the West Midlands and Cambridge who, it says, receive a bill that is approximately three quarters the industry average. It also provides specialist infrastructure contracting services and customer services for other utility firms. In January, Adrian Page, 48, stepped up from group finance director to become group chief executive. The firm was bought by KKR from Alinda Capital in July for an undisclosed sum.
