UKDN Waterflow is a leading provider of water and wastewater infrastructure services to UK utilities, rail, insurers and commercial organisations. The company was formed in 2003 through the merger of five regional drainage businesses to create one of the first national players in the space. In 2010 the management team partnered with Lyceum to provide capital and strategic expertise to help grow the business in a fast changing market. Since Lyceums investment the group has made and integrated two acquisitions, extending the geographic reach and creating an extensive portfolio of services.
The UK drainage industry is a highly fragmented market which is increasingly consolidating as businesses seek to outsource their drainage requirements to a single provider capable of delivering a broad range of services to the highest standard.
This is stimulating significant merger and acquisition activity in the sector as smaller firms are targeted by larger companies looking to gain the scale and breadth of services needed to create sustainable success.
To continue to develop and grow the business our strategy has focused on:
- Capitalising on UKDN Waterflow’s client relationships, service levels and systems to grow market share
- Extending the technical services activities from the South to the Midlands and North
- Expanding the group’s emergency response capability
- Investing in business development that is focused on three major verticals, WASC, Commercial an Industrial and Transport
