Family firm in 100 best to work for

A leading manufacturer of flooring, walls and ceilings has been included in the top 100 companies to work for, for the seventh year running.

Altro Group, based in Letchworth GC, achieved its highest ranking in the Sunday Times annual listing which recognises employee engagement, working conditions and community action at UK firms.

Established in 1919, the company is still run by the same family and employs 478 people, including 350 at its Letchworth headquarters making non-slip safety flooring, hygienic wall cladding and Autoglym car care products.

Third generation managing director Richard Khan said he was delighted with the recognition. “It matters so much because this is based purely on what our staff think of working here, and it shows that even in times of economic challenge when we’re all having to go the extra mile, people are enjoying coming to work and feel that their contribution really makes a difference.”
