Star Uretech joins the Good Business Charter Star

Star Uretech is delighted to announce it has joined companies such as Capita, London  City Airport and Deloitte in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC), an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.

Star Uretech is proud to be the first in the Resin Flooring sector to join the GBC. It has never been more important for businesses to regain trust and show they care about more than just profit.

The Good Business Charter exists for all companies and charities with 10 employees or more across all industries and sectors and works through a simple online self-certification process. At a time when people are caring more about who they work for and who they buy from, the Good Business Charter offers a straightforward accreditation which recognises organisations which prioritise and care for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law. The GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.

The Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board. Other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation and   the Prompt Payment Code. The GBC has been set up by a charity called the Good Business Foundation and accreditation will be free for all companies in the first year.

Chairman of the GBC board, Simon Fox, said:“The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have bought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses  to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to  change  business practice for  good. We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.”

Mark Almond of Star Uretech Ltd, said:“We take great pride in the ethical way in which we choose to run our business and we are delighted to receive accreditation from the Good Business Charter. We aim to prove that it is not just possible to run a successful company which chooses to do the right thing but that an ethical approach actually helps us to achieve our targets and continued success”

KEMTILE APPOINTS NORTHERN TERRITORY MANAGER

Leading hygienic flooring company Kemtile has put the experienced George Morton in charge of existing clients and new business development across the North of England.

George brings 30 years of construction and flooring installation expertise to the Territory Manager role and will now work as part of an extensive commercial team based in Kemtile’s UK HQ in Warrington.

Kemtile, which celebrated 40 years trading history in 2019, was acquired by US-based RPM Performance Coatings Group in July 2018, joining the worldwide Stonhard division, a specialist epoxy resin flooring manufacturer with a 90-year pedigree of its own.

It represents a new era in the UK for both firms, combining in-depth expertise for specification, manufacture and installation all under one roof for the first time.

It’s full circle for George, who spent three years with Stonhard until 2013, where he added resin flooring to a vast knowledge of concrete floors and construction in general and established an enviable sales record.

Taking some time out to run his own business, developing opportunities and managing all aspects of flooring build and install across the UK, George has now returned to the company in an exciting new role in the newly merged organisation.

He will be tasked with selling the ‘single source’ commercial flooring solution across Kemtile’s heartland food and drink marketplace and exploring opportunities in pharma, aerospace and engineering where the Stonhard UK brand is strong.

Current customers across both brands include Wright Foods, GKN Aerospace, Wrights Pies, Rhokett and KP Snacks.

He said: “Selling bespoke flooring solutions for both Kemtile and Stonhard is a really fantastic opportunity for me and a chance to complete unfinished business here! I think the sky’s the limit for these two brands. Both are second to none in experience, knowledge and commitment to delivering a high-quality service. I can’t wait to get started.”

Jamie Cooke, Operations Director commented: “We are delighted to bring George back into the business. He has a first class understanding of how to source and create tailored flooring solutions for customers in a wide range of sectors and is already familiar with the Stonhard brand and our commitment to on time, on budget delivery. He is going to be a great asset to our Northern client base and will help us lead Kemtile into the next phase of growth as part of an exciting worldwide Group.”
