Consolidated Water was established in 1973 as a private water utility in Grand Cayman, the largest island in the Cayman Islands group, and obtained its first public utility license in the Cayman Islands in 1979.
The company realized significant growth by capitalizing on our exclusive water utility franchise in Grand Cayman, as well as acquiring a number of other established businesses in the region. We leveraged these acquisitions, using our technical expertise and regional knowledge, to obtain contract extensions and new projects.
We installed our first SWRO plant in 1989 and now have more than 25 years of design insight and operational experience with this technology. SWRO is used in all the company’s operations. Our water production and distribution business model was first introduced in the Cayman Islands in 1990, and is now used throughout the company’s operations.
The Company was listed on the NASDAQ stock market in 1995. Take a look at our Investors section to learn more about our company’s finances and review investor relations materials.
