SCOTLAND’S second-largest water supplier is moving to a new location, with plans to almost double employee headcount in the next two years.

Clear Business – currently based in Hamilton– will become the second tenant of Clyde Gateway’s speculative office development, One Rutherglen Links. This brings the building to full occupation and represents the largest letting outwith a city centre this year.

Clear Business, part of the Verastar Group, entered the Scottish Water market as a licensed provider of water and waste services in 2013 and has rapidly gained market share, now servicing over one in four companies. It also provides business energy and telecoms services. Clear Business will occupy the ground and first floors of the building and bring 130 employees to the local Clyde Gateway area. It has ambitious plans to grow its business substantially and almost double the number of employees in the Clyde Gateway area to 250 staff over the next two years.

One Rutherglen Links is a four-storey, 34,085 sq.ft, Grade A office development – one of only a handful of speculative developments that South Lanarkshire has seen in recent years. Located beside Rutherglen railway station and national motorway networks, this building is meeting a much-needed gap for quality office space.

Clear Business will join leading provider of vital multi-technical services – SPIE UK, who currently occupy the top two floors.
