Here's a few stats we're really proud of:
Well, it's pretty simple, really. Because we do way more than build and innovate. We care. We save carbon. And most importantly - we save lives.
35% of our workforce have overcome barriers to employment during their time with us. From addiction to past convictions or seeking refuge, the journeys our colleagues have been on are nothing short of incredible.
Because they're living proof of the great things people can achieve if you give them a second chance or throw them a lifeline, and we believe everyone deserves a shot at turning things around without being judged for their past.
As part of that, we've created a company culture that's characterised by support and understanding - so when our people come to work, they can be entirely themselves, all of the time.
We believe our people deserve to be rewarded for their contributions to Solar Gates and the brilliant work they do. Here's a few things we've put in place to say thanks:
We don't just do award-winning solar hybrid barriers and gates. We've also got a dozen beehives dotted around the factory that we use to farm delicious honey and help local food producers.
Sounds a bit random, we know. But bees support our ecosystem and a huge variety of wildlife, and that's something we care a lot about.
All of our products are solar or hybrid powered so we can help our customers strive towards becoming Net-Zero.
We design everything to require as little power as possible, regardless of the season, so we can do our bit to help counteract the negative effects of carbon emissions and strive towards a greener planet - because the Earth deserves to be looked after.
