Instarmac Group plc, home to the Ultracrete, Ultrascape, Ultra Tile and Ultra Floor brands, was officially named by Price Waterhouse Cooper as ‘Employer of the Year’ at a star-studded ceremony in London earlier this month.  

Instarmac was initially shortlisted in July.  This in itself was already a huge achievement, as there were over 600 applications from all over the country.  

The awards celebrate the best in the UK Private Sector and underline its importance to the economy. Instarmac was one of only two companies in the West Midlands region who were shortlisted.  

To not only be shortlisted, but be officially named as Employer of the Year is testament to Instarmac, who are an example of how important private companies are to the recovery of the UK Economy. The award means that Instarmac are truly showcasing the ‘Best of British’ whilst the world focus is on the UK.   

Chris Romans, Partner and Private Business Expert at PwC in the Midlands commented that Instarmac are “making an important contribution to the local economy and creating sustainable jobs for local people.”  

It was commented that Instarmac won this award by showing they are much more than “a good company to work for.”  Charlie Hoffman, Managing Director for HSBC Private Bank (UK), associates of the awards, states that, as the winner, Instarmac:  

“Are able to demonstrate continued success in their employment policies and benchmark (their) progress against industry best practice.  (They) provide a beacon of inspiration for all private businesses across every conceivable sector.”  

Instarmac have been successfully manufacturing accredited highway maintenance systems, proven mortar paving products, and independently tested tile adhesives, grouts and levelling compounds for over 35 years.  

Their internal production processes have won awards for their Lean Efficiency, and their quality systems have been ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 accredited for almost 10 years – a mean feat for any manufacturing business.
