Altro Group Gets On Best Firms List
Altro Group is an anti-slip flooring specialist company. Its products are useful on all kinds of floors, including those that have had or may need wood floor repairs. It has been named as one of the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For by the Sunday Times. Even more astonishingly, Altro Group is in fact the only such manufacturing firm in the whole of the United Kingdom to be named in the list. This also marks the sixth time in a row that the company, which is based out of Letchworth and makes Autoglym car care products and wall cladding, has made the list. Altro Group employs a maximum of four hundred and fifty-five people, all of whom were quizzed about their employer by the paper regarding matters such as working conditions, training and development opportunities, the company’s profile in the local community and overall job satisfaction.
“We are thrilled that the contribution of all our employees across the Group has been recognised for the sixth year running,” says Altro Group MD Richard Kahn. “We were surprised to find ourselves the only manufacturing company in the listing this year. Competing in a world market is challenging for UK manufacturers, but we believe that our culture, brand values and the way in which everyone works to shape the company are central to maintaining our success.”
Every employee of Altro Group actually owns a stake in the company, with eighty per cent of those surveyed saying they are proud to work for the Group.
