The Staff

Forresters employ approximately 110 staff – the majority of whom live within a 10 mile radius. We are proud of the dedication and commitment shown by many of our staff, (over 35 staff having worked for the company in excess of 10 years). The majority of our managers have worked their way up from within the production halls, and it is part of our company philosophy to actively encourage internal promotions.
