Working towards a clearer future
In just three decades Clearwater has grown from a regional water solutions provider to one of the largest suppliers of water treatment, hygiene and air solutions, servicing major brands across the UK and Ireland.
Since our humble beginnings we have become far more than just a leading supplier of these solutions. Alongside our continued work increasing sustainability and delivering ROI for our clients, we have been instrumental in the development of governmental legislation and have generated tens of thousands in charity donations.
Clearwater is about more than simply reducing the amount that companies spend on water and energy consumption. As a nearly 500 person strong business, we are passionate about the wider social and economic impacts that our solutions have, not just on end consumers, but also on the environment that surrounds them.
Clearwater Technology Ltd founded
Within two years of launching, we moved into our new office and warehouse facilities in Watchmoor Park, Camberley and gained an ISO9002 Quality Standard.
By 1994 we had outgrown the new facilities and relocated to offices in Minster Court, Camberley with Watchmoor Park becoming our operational depot.
In 1995, Clearwater joined the Heating & Ventilating Contractors Association (HVCA) which later became the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA).
By 1996 we had become a leading and respected solutions provider across London and the South East .
1998 saw our focus expand to the Midlands and the North with the appointments of numerous engineers in both regions.
Water Ancillaries Ltd aquired
1999 saw Clearwater acquire competitor Water Ancillaries Ltd and establish chemical production facilities and laboratory in the Midlands. By the end of the year we had attained a 9001 quality standard and also registered with the Code of Conduct Association, now known as LCA
10 years in business
Following a momentous first ten years in business, we kicked off the new millennium with the introduction of a dedicated business development team.
New facility in Bristol
Launched a new facility in Bristol to serve the South West and Wales. That same year we gained our ISO 14001 environmental management rating.
In 2002 we expanded into Scotland with a new office in East Kilbride. We also formed SafeCare, the consultancy services arm of the business. Following rapid growth, Clearwater’s Midlands office was relocated to a bespoke facility in Bromsgrove. The following year we achieved the Investors in People standard.
2004 saw Clearwater appointed as the approved supplier of water treatment for the office of Government Commerce.
Halifax office opened

Northern Ireland expansion
In 2009 we set up in Northern Ireland with the opening of our Belfast office.
More offices in the North
In 2010 greater demand for Clearwater’s services in the North led to the closing of the Halifax office and the opening of two new offices – one in Warrington serving the North West and one in Garforth serving the North East. 2010 also saw our City and Guilds training programmes accredited for Legionella control and awareness.
Pump services division established
In 2011 we established our dedicated pump services division.
Growth hits £25 million
In 2012 we celebrated a major milestone – Clearwater’s growth was recorded at £25 million; a £20 million increase from the year 2000. Later in 2012 we introduced Clearsafe, a paperless field force automation system that is more efficient to use and kinder to the environment.
25 years in business
In 2015 we celebrated 25 years delivering Water and Air Services and joined Baird Capital in partnership. This landmark year also saw our staff raise £27,000 for Cancer Research UK.
Head office move
In 2016 we relocated our head office from Camberley to Frimley.
In 2017 our Midlands operations moved to larger facilities in Redditch where the Clearwater Technical Training Academy will launch in 2018.
What happens next?
It’s been an exhilarating journey from our humble beginnings to our current positioning as a leading provider in the water and air services industry, serving clients of all sizes across a vast and exciting range of verticals. As we continue to expand, deliver and innovate, we will keep our quality of service and the impact of our work as the driving force behind every future achievement. Watch this space.
