KEMTILE CELEBRATES 40 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Kemtile – the flooring and drainage specialist to the food and drink manufacturing sector – is celebrating its 40th anniversary this month.

Formed in autumn 1979, the size and success of the Cheshire-based company has consistently grown over four decades in terms of size, capabilities and customer base.

Starting as a three-person team, Kemtile was acquired by US-based RPM Performance Coatings Group a year ago. It is now a division of its industrial brand, Stonhard, which provides a range of products and services to various markets in more than 65 countries across the globe.

Kemtile clients include Princes, Kellogg’s, Unilever, Heinz, 2 Sisters Food Group, Cargill and Moy Park.

The company recently relocated its head office team into a larger, fully renovated and newly refurbished premises on the same business park that it has always occupied.

This increased its workspace by a third, which is now filled, in part, by the Stonhard UK team after moving its national headquarters from Hampshire to Warrington during the summer – bringing the company’s full staff headcount to 60.

Jamie Cook, Operations Director of Kemtile, said: “We are, of course, delighted to celebrate such a milestone and I’m very proud of our growth and successes during the last four decades.

“From rather humble beginnings, our experience, expertise and attention to detail has earned us an enviable reputation amongst food and drink manufacturing companies and pharmaceutical processors.

“I took over the company with my co-director, Stephen Westley, back in 1998. Since then, we’ve worked with lots of leading brands – as well as many smaller players – and have become a hygienic flooring supplier of choice.

“Our acquisition reaffirms our success and will help us to realise our strategic growth plans for the future. It’s certainly an exciting time for Kemtile – and the wider Stonhard and the RPM Performance Coatings Group – and we’re very much looking forward to what’s still to come.”
