2012 – Renolit is a manufacturer of high quality plastic materials for many applications. The products of the Dutch subsidiary are processed into products for the medical industry, such as infusion bags and tubes and bags for blood plasma, by customers. The company is located in Enkhuizen, the Netherlands and changed ownership several times. Renolit Netherlands employs about 160 people.
Renolit Netherlands operates in a market that is not particularly cyclical, however it puts increasing demands on the production and regulation, it has raised the requirements in terms of hygiene and it orders for more difficult products. As company Renolit must develop and so the staff need to develop as well. In consultation with the employees, the company has used the room in the collective labour agreement (namely the old measures to release elderly people) in a new way, namely for training and measures that will contribute to the vitality of the staff.
From the outset , all employees were involved in renewal of the collective agreement, in briefings and in the bargaining. An important lesson is : all parties have to agree on the facts (and the figures) in advance. If you agree on these, there is no ground for suspicion.
The result is not yet known.
Renolit was the last company in the AWVN (general employers association) manifestafette 2011-2012, in which the baton was previously won by: ING Insurance / Investment Management , Xerox and FloraHolland.
