High Peak based Street Crane Company have set aside £100,000 to help staff through the cost of living crisis. The one-off support payment will provide each employee with an additional £850 in their September pay packet. The management team of 15 is voluntarily forgoing the payment so an extra £100 could be added for each of the 118 eligible employees.
“With the impact of the pandemic and Brexit, and the ongoing energy uncertainties caused by the war in Ukraine, we are all navigating our way through exceptional times. People are our most valuable asset and at Street we have a proud 76 years history supporting each other. I would like to thank everyone involved,” explained Managing Director, Gus Zona.
In his fourth year as an apprentice, Josh Clark, commented, “This bonus is a great sign of respect and means a great deal to me. It's going to be a huge help in the upcoming winter months and in dealing with the current cost of living crisis.”
Michael Burgreave, who manages the goods in, added, “When the company asks everybody to gather for a meeting, you expect bad news. Especially with the current economic climate. Thankfully, the news was very good – an announcement of a bonus from the management team. This is a fantastic gesture and will not be forgotten by me and a lot of fellow workers.”
Street Crane Company was founded in 1946 by ex-spitfire pilot, Peter Street. In its long history it has successfully grown and prospered to be one of the world’s largest suppliers of overhead crane technology, exporting to over 50 countries. This is not the first energy or cost of living crisis that the company has experienced in that history.
“Of course as business we still face the full force of price rises. As a major steel user we are seeing the cost of raw materials sky rocket and energy price increases hit us everywhere. We hope the Government will look to put in place measures to help all businesses to work through the crisis. With the cost of living support payment, we are doing what we can to help our team,” Gus concluded.
