A very warm welcome to the AKW Holdings Group of Companies.
You have joined an organisation whose mission is to provide bespoke products for the Care market. These products are aimed at keeping the elderly and those with reduced mobility living independently in their own homes for as long as possible with safety and dignity. Should the day come when a person has to go into a residential care setting then we also supply products for Care and Nursing homes which not only provides a safe working environment for staff, but which also offers practical and comfortable solutions for the patient.
Whilst our largest market is based in the UK, we also have a growing international business based in Belgium which has the same mission and supplies similar products, mainly in France and we also export to the USA.
You are now part of an organisation which takes pride as being market leaders and innovators in the Care market. We hold many patents for innovative design and continue to strive for excellence in both product design and quality.
You are key to the development of our business. Our philosophy is to ensure all our staff develop their skills through in house training, external training courses and internal career development opportunities. Many of our Directors and Senior Managers are long serving employees who have proved themselves capable of taking on more responsibility during their time with us.
I, along with the other Directors, wish you a long, fulfilling and enjoyable employment with us.
I look forward to working with you.
