WE ARE
EMPLOYEE OWNED

As an employee owned organisation all our employees have a significant and meaningful stake in the business and we all know the success of Camlab is tied directly to the success of our employees and customers. 

This means that our employees have both a financial stake in the business via shares through Profit Share, Share Incentive Plans (SIPs), of which any dividends received are paid tax free and they also have a say in how Camlab is run which is why they go the extra mile and take great care of ‘their’ customers.
