This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Stuart Turner Limited’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year commencing 1 October 2023 and ending 30 September 2024.

This statement covers the activities of Stuart Turner Limited and its wholly owned subsidiaries, being: Stuart Turner Aquaboost, Mikrofill Systems Limited and Aquatronic Group Management Limited (and references to “Stuart Turner”, “we”, “us”, “our”, the “group” or the “company” are to Stuart Turner Limited and the members of its group).

This is the second statement being made by Stuart Turner under section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and trafficking in our business and supply chains and are working on reviewing and refreshing our approach to complying with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Our structure

Stuart Turner is a manufacturing business located in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire and includes three wholly owned subsidiary businesses, being: Stuart Turner Aquaboost, based in Eggborough, North Yorkshire; Mikrofill Systems Limited located in Redditch, Worcestershire and Aquatronic Group Management Ltd, based in Copford, Essex, with regional support offices in Manchester and Southampton. In total, we employ approximately 230 people based in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

The group has an annual turnover in excess of £60 million.

Our business

The main activity carried out by Stuart Turner is the manufacture and sale of a range of water boosting products across a broad range of residential and commercial applications. Stuart Turner Aquaboost manufacture both standard and bespoke water boosting installations specifically aimed at the commercial and OEM market while Mikrofill Systems design and manufacture commercial condensing boilers, hot water loading systems, dosing pots, and pressurisation equipment. AGM Ltd are a key supplier of water pressure booster sets and pressurisation units to the building services, process and water industries.

Demand for our products is consistent throughout the year and is not subject to seasonality.

Our supply chains

We source a range of materials, including polymers, metals, electronics, packaging and other such products together with related services from the UK, Europe, and Asia that enable the manufacture of our range of water boosting products at our four sites in the UK.

Like many organisations, we outsource some services to keep our operations running effectively, such as maintenance, cleaning, logistics, and IT.

No labour provided to the group in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. The group strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Our approach

We have various measures and due diligence processes in place to ensure the suppliers we engage with take compliance with applicable modern slavery law as seriously as we do. This includes our suppliers being:

(i) required to respond to qualification protocols to confirm that they comply with applicable laws relating to the prevention of modern slavery;

(ii) agreeing to allow us to visit and assess their compliance and that of their suppliers to applicable laws relation to the prevention of modern slavery; and

(iii) assessed for social compliance and any indication of modern slavery prior to approval as a supplier to the group. If a supplier assessment reveals a vulnerable workforce or geographical location risk is identified, an audit will be completed, and the results and the remediation plans (if any) will be evaluated prior to approval of the supplier. The standard terms within our supplier contracts also provide the right of termination for any non-compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and in the event that the supplier is, or is suspected, to be involved in modern slavery, we will terminate our relations with them.

Next steps

As noted, this is the second statement being made by Stuart Turner under section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Whilst we have several measures in place relating to Modern Slavery Act 2015 compliance, we intend to take further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking and will be working to implement a refreshed compliance programme over the next financial year. 

Board approval

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30 September 2024.

It was approved by Stuart Turner’s Board in November 2023 and shall be reviewed and updated annually.
