Established in 1974, Liniar’s headquarters, mixing plant, lamination facility, warehouse and showroom are based in Denby, Derbyshire. Surrounding the facility are the areas of the Amber Valley, including Ripley, Heanor, Codner and Belper.
The Amber Valley region was formerly home to a strong coal mining industry but suffered from long periods of unemployment levels after the closure of the opencast mines in the area and Denby Hall Coillery in 1968.
Liniar and its Senior Management Team have always had a strong commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, from a comprehensive apprenticeship programme which has been running since the company was founded to the more than 500 employment opportunities it has created in a vast range of roles. Additionally, the company takes part in the local community with help at events, donations to charity and one-off charity projects with
schools, churches and charities.
Boasting a strong ethos of training and development, including a world-class apprenticeship programme, Liniar strives to provide opportunities to both young people in the area and current employees who are planning for their future. Liniar is delighted to say it has over two dozen current apprentices in the business throughout areas such as finance, marketing, logistics, tool room, design and development and engineering and an additional 14 other apprentices who’ve completed their programmes and gone on to full-time employment with Liniar. In fact, Liniar’s Design and Development Director Chris Armes, began as a tool room apprentice in 2003 and has risen through the ranks throughout the years – becoming an integral part of all new products launched into the market with the Liniar name.
As part of a successful Corporate Social Responsibility policy, Liniar plays an active role in the local area by offering its services or making donations to a whole host of activities and events – including sponsoring the annual
Marehay Show, fixing the boiler of a local church and providing tons of supplies to charities which help disadvantaged youths and under-age
In 2020, supporting the community included supporting the local ladies football club – The Pride Park FC ladies team. The team a long-time team member’s daughter, Summer, plays for.
