Employee Owned Company
Eagle Plant's shareholder recently announced that he would sell a controlling interest in Eagle Plant to an Employee Trust. This will effectively transfer ownership and control of the Eagle Plant business to its employees. This change is likely to be completed by the end of March 2016.
A new Trust Company will be formed and the Trustees will hold shares on behalf of the employees. It is anticipated that there will be five trustees, two elected by the employees themselves, two trustees from the trading company (Eagle Plant) and an independent chairman. The current Directors will continue in post.
These are exciting times for Eagle Plant's employees and customers and it is hoped this development will signal further growth for the business.
