Employee Ownership Day

By Jake Kirk • Friday 30th June 2017

Employee Ownership Day

It’s that time of year again when we can celebrate Employee Ownership Day!

We began as a true start-up in 2001 and have always lived by the philosophy “customer satisfaction matters so much more when you own the business”.

Kite Packaging was founded on the principle of employee-ownership, back in 2001. Our Chairman, Bruce McInnes, along with the founding partners, decided to create a company in which employees could share in wealth creation, and provide customers with a best-in-class service, driven by employee’s motivation to create success for the company and themselves. After all, “customer satisfaction matters so much more when you own the business”.

We are known as a ‘direct’ employee-owned business, meaning we, as employee partners, own the majority shares in Kite. This gives us the advantage of making strategic decisions from the ‘front line’ and encourages us to help the business, our colleagues, our customers and our suppliers, creating a true partnership approach.

Happy Employee Ownership Day to everyone who has supported Kite and our philosophy!
