IRL Group were recently invited by Altro to visit their premises and take time out to provide them with our views and opinions.

It is key for Altro to understand what their Customers think of them and to know where they need to improve in the future so that they continue to improve their product and service offerings.  Altro have said that our feedback on their product, service, packaging  and colour selection will be very useful for them moving forward. 




Our two new apprentices started their scheme this month in resin flooring.  For these first sessions our 2 apprentices joined together with other FeRFA (Resin Flooring Association) apprentices for the two day modules which included an induction from CITB, and an in-depth health & safety training session delivered by Terry Foxley, the FeRFA trainer.

All schemes lead to an NVQ level 2 diploma and are fully grant funded by CITB for in scope employers. 



A number of years ago as a member of FeRFA, we committed to playing our part in halving the amount of construction and packaging waste going to landfill. We pledged that we would promote the adoption and implementation of standards for good practice in reducing waste, re cycling more and increasing the use of recycled and recovered materials.

We estimated how much waste we would produce on our projects and worked with our clients and suppliers to find ways to reduce waste.

We did this by reducing waste on site through proper handling, storage and use of materials; we found more ways to recycle more waste; and recorded the waste we produced, we are pleased to say that our records now show that we have halved the amount of waste produced since 2013 from 223 tonne to 116 tonne of which over 97% is being recycled and will continue our commitment throughout 2015.




IRL Group have recently taken part in a Help for Heroes Charity Event at the Barley Mow Public House in Stapenhill.  The event turned out to be a far greater success than ever imagined and on the night the total amount raised was a staggering £3142.00 due in no small way to our generosity and other like minded companies who contributed such high end quality goods to the auction.

Through our efforts we will have helped to aid injured and traumatised service personnel and we take great pride in that fact.


Sika Race Day at Uttoxeter

IRL Group recently attended a special "Race Card" @ Uttoxeter Racecourse courtesy of Sika UK, the programme included a Private Box, 7 Races, Refreshments & Lunch, and the chance to enjoy a day away from work in the company of one of IRL Group's longest trading Partners -Sika UK, Martin Yarker. IRLGroup Business Development Manager says " We had a fabulous day @ Uttoxeter Races with our colleagues from Sika UK, we are normally too busy with everyday working to attend events such as these, but everyone really had a great day (some more than others at the bookies!) This type of event definitely strengthens the ties we already have with Sika UK, and is something we should do more often!"
