Anglian Water Business wins Pure Gym contract

New contract covers 180 sites across England and Scotland

Anglian Water Business has been appointed to provide water retail services to the UK’s largest private gym operator – Pure Gym.

The three-year contract involves all of the company’s 180 sites across England and Scotland, and will also include any new sites added to the portfolio during that period.

Anglian Water Business has been providing these services to Pure Gym in Scotland for the past two years, and the gym operator opted for an early contract renewal in Scotland in order to consolidate all its English and Scottish sites with a single supplier.

The new contract is expected to generate operational savings in excess of £35,000 per year for Pure Gym, with these financial benefits increasing as more gyms are added to the network.

Anglian Water Business business account manager Simon Belton said: “We’ve been Pure Gym’s water retailer in Scotland for a number of years; and have built a track record and strong relationship that has prompted the company to agree an early contract renewal with us for its sites in Scotland in addition to consolidating all its English sites under a single contract.

“Our focus will continue to be on making it easier for Pure Gym to manage its water spend with an emphasis on outstanding service, water efficiency and reliability, supporting the company as it continues to set the high standards of affordable, flexible and top-quality gym facilities that have seen it grow so rapidly.”

Pure Gym was founded in 2008, and is the UK’s largest private gym operator, with more than 180 gyms and 800,000 members across the UK.

Pure Gym head of facilities Simon Rouski said: “The shower and change facilities we offer at every site mean that water is an essential element of our service to customers so a reliable supplier that can help us maintain reliability and reduce costs across our growing network of gyms is vital.

“Our experience with Anglian Water Business in Scotland means that we know we can trust them to take the hassle out of managing our water supply across all our gyms while offering us cost rationalisation.”

Anglian Water Business supplies more than 160,000 businesses and public sector bodies across the UK. In March, the company announced a joint venture agreement with NWG Business, to create a new water retailer – Wave. The joint venture is subject to approval by the Competition and Markets Authority, which is expected to make a decision next month.
