We have a responsibility as a Burnley-Business to be involved in the community, whether that’s through employment, volunteering, charitable donations and education. Caring about CSR is in the interest of business and society as a whole.
Rupert Gatty, Managing Director
Not only do we offer employment opportunities for people in the local area and contribute significantly to the manufacturing economy within Lancashire, but the whole workforce strongly believes in supporting good causes wherever possible.
Throughout the business there’s a real community spirit, with all employees encouraged to take part in charity events, volunteering for causes they feel passionately about, and help train young people and develop skills that will help them gain employment.
We are always keen to hear from passionate, committed and ambitious individuals across all departments within our business. We believe that is the people who create a great business
We believe in joining in and being a part of the community. If we feel a sense of belonging in a group then we perform better as a team
Our staff regularly take part in a variety of charity events raising money for worthy causes and spending time together outside a working environment
From charity events, to mentoring, work experience, sponsorships and training, we are busy making a difference in our local community and our employees.
A Day In The Life Of Our Production Planning Manager
To celebrate International Women Day, we talk to one of the rising starts at CoolKit, Alicia Threlfall, taking us through a typical day for a Production Planning Manager in a rapidly growing business.
Manufacturing Of The Future
CoolKit has well-established links with Burnley College, bringing the engineering talent of tomorrow onto their shop floor. One of the latest recruits to come from the College has had an interesting journey so far.
We meet Chris Bromley, Junior Design Engineer, to discover what made him completely change direction in his career, find out what he gets up to at CoolKit and how he’s making a real difference.
CoolKit: Incremental Changes
Within the Burnley-based company, the R&D department is headed up by John Drummond, Quality and Engineer Manager. John has recently helped CoolKit secure the latest ISO9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards.
John, an engineer by trade, is tasked with re-engineering processes and solutions to ensure each vehicle is completed to a high standard, with more speed and efficiency.
