History

Originally Anglian Water, it was one of the British regional water companies privatised in 1989.

Like many utility companies, AWG has attempted to diversify away from a core business which offers steady profits but has very limited potential for expansion, in its case through the acquisition in 2000 of the Scottish support service and construction group Morrison Construction. In 2006 it sold Morrison Construction to Galliford Try for £42m.

AWG was acquired by the Osprey Consortium, made up of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, Colonial First State Global Asset Management, Industry Funds Management and 3i Group, in December 2006.

In March 2008 AWG sold the Morrison Utility Services business to Cognetas and Englefield Capital for £235m.
