Christeyns wins Employer of the Year at Bradford Means Business Awards
Specialist chemical manufacturer Christeyns has cause for celebration as it was announced Employer of the Year at the 9th annual Bradford Means Business Awards last week.
The awards ceremony, held at City Park in Bradford on 19th July, celebrates all that is great about business in Bradford and the companies putting the city on the map.
The Employer of the Year award is presented to an outstanding company that has demonstrated strong investment in their employees, in their health and wellbeing, as well as offering a range of key employee benefits. Companies also needed to be able to demonstrate that the safety and security of their employees is of the utmost importance.
For Nick Garthwaite, managing director at Christeyns, treating employees like family is what makes the business a success. “I think that being recognised as the employer of the year stands out as THE award to win in many respects. As a business we care about our employees. Whether a manager or an apprentice, all are treated with the same respect and given the same opportunities and benefits.”
The firm was also a finalist in the Manufacturer of the Year category.
Christeyns UK is part of the Christeyns group, based in Ghent, Belgium. Its principal focus is the manufacture and supply of detergents and supporting chemicals for the commercial laundry sector across the UK in which it is the market leader.
