Aquascot began the journey into employee ownership in 2008 with a long-term plan of becoming 100% employee owned by 2017. Seven years on and we are on track to achieve this goal.
The company directors chose this path as a way of keeping the business local and to protect the long-term interests of everyone involved with Aquascot: supply partners, partners in the business, customer partners and the many people who enjoy our products every day.
In preparation for Employee Ownership, an employee elected ‘Partnership Council’ was formed to represent the interests of the employees. This is our way of collecting employee views and ensures a healthy flow of communication runs through the business. We believe this adds an additional strength to our partnership.
Every two years we hold an election where new members replace the longest serving members, giving everyone a fair a chance to represent their colleagues.
