AWG plc was a British holding company which is parent to Anglian Water. It was previously listed on the London Stock Exchange and was a member of the FTSE 250 Index but it is now owned by the Osprey Consortium. Its headquarters are in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
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.
In March 2008 AWG sold the Morrison Utility Services business to Cognetas and Englefield Capital for £235m.
