We Own It.
Shawston is an employee owned business. This means Shawston is wholly owned by its employees who have purchased shares in the company through investing their own hard earned money. Our employee ownership journey started in 2015, when the co-founders set us on the long-term path towards ‘forever Shawston’. It has always been our philosophy to put more and more equity in the hands of our employees, so the decision to change our employees from wage earners to genuine shareholders was an easy one.
"Retiring at Shawston is a real prospect – a job for life perhaps."

Shawston’s evolution has been through focussed and timely strategic business decisions to benefit our customers. Happy customers make Shawston happy and in turn provide benefits to our company, our employee shareholders, and our suppliers. Our strategy is key here - a customer centric focus through the individuals that are responsible for Shawston’s success.
"Being fully in control of how we want our business to run, the future is ours to plan."
