Our people count.......



We are 80 years old this year and of all the things that we have achieved over those 80 years we couldn’t be prouder of our people and the way that we work together as a team.
Our mantra has always been to care about how we do business, this means that not only do we care about our ethical standards and how we interact with our suppliers and customers, but also how we care about each other. Coming to work might be a financial necessity but it should also be rewarding in other ways, and the relationships that we build with each other are important for our wellbeing and our sense of satisfaction at the end of a good days work!

We are very proud to say that in recent weeks our efforts have been recognised with two awards which mean a great deal to us.

Firstly we have been awarded the Workplace Wellbeing Charter (http://wellbeingcharter.org.uk) and are the first company in Stockport to do so. By having ourselves assessed, benchmarked and accredited with “The Charter” we have committed a
statement of intent towards the health, safety and wellbeing of the people who work with us. This encompasses both physical health and mental health, so for example we operate the “Cycle to Work” scheme, but we have also trained some of our staff to help in a more “pastoral” role. The Charter is national recognition of this fact.

Secondly we have been awarded Investors in People Gold Standard. This follows pretty quickly on the heels of our Silver award last year, and is in recognition of the improvements that we have made since then. We believe that only 7.5% of organisations in the UK carry this prestigious award, and we know that there are only 14 who have been awarded it in Stockport. The assessment is rigorous but IIP have helped us to set ourselves goals and targets and we are pleased to have raised our game and met their requirements.

In the last few years we have taken quite a few steps to show our staff that we value and respect them.


We believe that it is important to adopt a transparent and ethical approach to business.

We do not supply directly to the public or to schools or shops within schools. We support the specialist retailers who stock our products. We only use factories which are fully compliant with all health, safety and child/labour regulations and we care about the products and services that we offer to our customers.
