Friday 10th March was a big day as we officially announced the restructuring of Soilèir, Hydration Hub and Clearer Water under The Clearer Group.
The Clearer Group announcement coincides with the one year anniversary of Soilèir acquiring Clearer Water. Soiléir demonstrated their commitment to the Clearer Water brand, retained all existing staff and created new opportunities to create further career and employment opportunities for young people with additional needs.
One year on from the acquisition Soilèir will now be housed under the Clearer Group alongside flagship brand, Clearer Water and Hydration Hub.
In honour of the big announcement we take a look back at some of this years milestones.
