Our culture

 

Our Cornerstones provide strong values and foundations for the development of everything we do.  

Being a family is core to our being. Everyone works together, everyone looks out for each other and everyone is expected to step up and play their part. 

For us, it's a way of working and treating people that makes us who we are. 


Our work is underpinned by our 5 Cornerstones and you'll find them in everything we do:



Upholding Family Values

This is what makes us different. We work hard together to deliver results and have some fun along the way. It’s about doing the right thing. We’re straightforward and value honesty, trust and kindness. It’s ‘new-fashioned’ family values built on our heritage.

  

Keeping People Safe
Safety, for us, is everything. We expect everyone to go home to their families exactly as they arrived at work.
Making decent returns
Making a decent return is less about making money and more about creating value for shareholders, employees, customers and suppliers.  And it depends on building business relationships based on trust and respect; strong enough to keep going through bad and good times.
Working for our customers
The success of our business relies on strong relationships. This is about a ‘can do, will do’ attitude and understanding the lifelong value of each customer relationship.
Being the best

Our aim is to set the bar high and make our customers feel special. Our business is built on maintaining good relationships with our customers and suppliers. It’s essential we attract and retain the best people to enable us to operate the best business in every catchment area.
