“At Church & Dwight UK Ltd, we are very proud to be a thriving UK operation and part of the very successful global Church & Dwight Co. Inc. based in Princeton, New Jersey, USA and listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
In the UK, we continue to have high ambitions, both in terms of the results we expect and how we get there in order to maintain our competitive edge in this challenging arena.
In fact, I would call us restlessly ambitious - restlessly ambitious for our business, for our brands and for our people who work here.
Firstly, we are committed to creating a larger and more successful business with ever strengthening leading brands.
We relish the challenge of building our existing brands in what are demanding markets and during 2011, we successfully acquired and integrated the market leading, Batiste Dry Shampoo brand to significantly enhance our overall portfolio.
We relentlessly seek to strengthen our company both through brand innovation and through improving the quality of our relationships with key customers and suppliers.
We continually seek to manufacture as efficiently as possible and have, through 2011, been able to announce two significant investments in new production equipment that will begin to positively impact our business from 2012.
We are also a company which works extremely hard to ensure we can quickly learn from the successes of Church & Dwight Co. Inc. and its affiliates from across the world.
Secondly and most importantly to note, it is in our people and our teams where we have our greatest strength. We draw on the expertise, creativity and passion of our people in working together with a shared and clear sense of purpose towards achieving our goals.
As an operation based in Folkestone, we have a strong presence which comes with a heritage that we are proud of.
Our local mission is to build social links, to forge partnerships with the local community and to foster a community spirit with our employees.
We value authenticity in our relationships, agility in the way we are able to move faster and smarter than the competition whilst also encouraging our people and teams to find the best possible balance to be both empowered and fully accountable in their roles.
For me, it is a very fulfilling experience to be part of the company we are today at Church & Dwight UK Ltd and also to contribute to working towards the business we want to be in the future.
I hope you find it so as a consumer, a customer, a supplier or even one day, as a potential employee!”
