Our colleagues

We employ over 160 Colleagues across our sites from within the local communities in which we operate. 

The continuing success of Ellgia is a consequence of the fantastic team of employees that we have recruited and developed since we were founded in 2011.  A business that has changed dramatically in terms of its depth and complexity throughout that period. Our people have adapted, grown and embraced the continued improvements and change and are the foundation of our future development and performance.  

Our colleagues are Ellgia’s biggest asset and without their dedication and commitment, we wouldn’t have achieved the growth and improvement that the business has seen over recent years.
