Schuh, the Livingston-based footwear retailer, is set for five-figure cost savings after swapping its water supplier.

The firm has switched its account for its headquarters and 15 Scottish branches to Thames Water Commercial Services (TWCS) and as a result is set for savings of up to £22,000 a year.

Its Bathgate distribution hub has slashed its projected wastewater bills by £40,000 after the Thames team identified that run-off drainage was flowing into a local burn, rather than into the sewer network.

Schuh managing director Colin Temple said: “The knowledge and expertise of the TWCS team in spotting the significance of the burn quite literally unearthed new savings that would otherwise have gone completely unnoticed.”
