Amazon Filters strengthens staff volunteering opportunities with charity CMPP
1st December 2021
More than 200 team members at a Surrey-based industrial filter maker are to be offered hands-on community volunteering opportunities.
It follows an agreement between manufacturer Amazon Filters and charity CMPP, the Community Matters Partnership Project.
As a business partner of CMPP, Amazon Filters will benefit from help to further its community links while giving around 220 staff at its Frimley head office and European production centre the chance to support a range of activities.
They include participation in community action days, environmental clean-ups, projects at local schools and fundraising initiatives.
Ruth Pappadakis, Head of Human Resources at 36-year-old Amazon Filters, said: “Taking part in community volunteering supports our staff wellbeing, workplace values and company culture.
“Many of our employees live locally and are keen to give something back to the community so becoming a CMPP business partner fits well with that.
“At the same time, as a company founded and based in Surrey, we want to strengthen our local community connections too.
“We look forward to sharing CMPP volunteering opportunities with our team members in all kinds of job roles, both factory and office-based.”
Tracy Jarvis, Chief Executive of CMPP, said: “As a well-established and respected local company, Amazon Filters represents a perfect example of how we can enable the strengthening of connections between a company and its community.
“We’re keen to start helping Amazon Filters employees get involved in some exciting and worthwhile local volunteering projects.”
Founded in 1985, Amazon Filters provides mission-critical filtration products and solutions for a wide range of industry sectors in the UK, Europe and further afield.
They include municipal water, food and beverage, chemicals and coatings, automotive and building services.
Production at the Frimley facility reflects ongoing investment in a ‘quick and able’ approach to manufacturing capacity which enables the company to turn round bespoke orders from anywhere in the world faster than competitors.
