Helen Jones MP, Labour member for Warrington North, recently visited the Sharples Group Kingsland Grange HQ to hear more about the company’s ‘principlebefore-profit’ initiative from Managing Director Mark Brocklehurst, Sales Director David Griffiths and
Financial Director Aimee Timmins.
Also in attendance were charity representatives Adrian Derbyshire, a former international wheelchair athlete for Great Britain, a hate crime ambassador and disability spokesperson; and Dave McNicholl, the chief executive of Warrington Youth Club.
Brocklehurst said: “Principle-before-profi is about people, our staff and our customers in all areas of the business. Getting your staff and customers on-side is crucial for any business. And the best way to do that is to keep them informed and to share the benefits.”
During the visit Mrs Jones congratulated Sharples Group for winning the Most Responsible Business Practice Award in this year’s High Sheriff of Cheshire Awards. She said this achievement was proof that Sharples was both an ethical and successful company.
Shaples Group, which celebrates its 40th birthday next year, has 27 employees and a turnover of £3.2 million.”
