Gender Pay Gap Report

From 2017, any organisation that employs 250 or more people must calculate and publish information about their Gender Pay Gap. The data for pay rate comparisons relates to a snap shot as at 5th April 2020.  The date for bonus payments relates to bonuses received between May 2020 and April 2021.

The ATB Group UK Ltd has three sites in the UK, located in Norwich, Leeds and Birmingham. At the reporting date, the group employed 301 people, comprising 271 males and 30 females. All three sites are engaged in the design, manufacture and test of electric rotating machinery. The Birmingham site manufactures small motors and generators. The other two sites manufacture progressively larger equipment weighing up to 40 tonnes and can be considered manufacturers of heavy industrial equipment. We believe this focus on manufacturing and in particular, heavy industry does not generally appeal to female applicants. Despite this, we are happy to say that we have female employees in manual shop floor roles, shop floor inspection, purchasing, planning, sales and finance.
