Smarta Water

Dave Hawkins
Portfolio Executive

“We’ve recently taken on two new starters and have plans to grow the business further thanks to the working capital boost we have received from FW Capital.”

Steve Black, Managing Director, Smarta Water 

Smarta Water were able to support the future growth of the business across the UK following securing a £500,000 investment from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, as part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

The funding provided additional working capital to assist the creation of two new head office roles, while also supporting the general expansion of the business. This includes assisting Smarta Water with the building of a new billing platform with Trevi to offer an enhanced and easier payment software solution.

Smarta Water was established in November 2018 and currently employs ten people. The business is an independent retailer supplying non-household water and wastewater services across England and Scotland, operating from offices in Bristol and Leeds.

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
