National Grid Gas Distribution has been rebranded as Cadent, now an independent organisation.
The change comes as National Grid sold off its majority stake in the company in a £13 billion deal, which is now owned by a consortium of investors.
Cadent Chief Executive Chris Train, who has had more than 30 years of experience in the energy sector said: “I’m very excited to announce our new name which is inspired by the word cadence which embodies the natural rhythm and energy running through everything we do.
“As Britain’s largest gas network, we look forward to a strong future ahead, supported by our various partners.”
The company maintains a network of 131,000 kilometres of pipes for 11 million homes across the North West, West Midlands, East Midlands, East Anglia, North London and parts of the Thames Valley.
