Our Vision

To be the best torque tool company in the world. Respected, profitable and a great place to work!

Our Philosophy

People are the source of our strength. They provide our knowledge and skills and therefore determine our reputation in the market. Personal input, involvement and teamwork are our core human values.

We pride ourselves that our average length of service is 11 years and 12% of our employees have more than 25 years’ service with 7% achieving over 30 years’ service.

Norbar offers a competitive salary and a non-guaranteed profit share scheme. There is a voluntary contributory pension scheme, and life assurance of three times basic salary. Employees can access a voluntary benefits scheme via a lifestyle hub and apply for discounts in many high-street stores and leisure activities.

After a qualifying period, staff are eligible for company sick pay and long service status. Occupational health advice is on hand to provide support and guidance. For those who require physiotherapy/chiropractic treatment etc. some financial assistance is available.

The Company recognises the value of family time. In this respect Norbar can offer the equivalent of 5 weeks' holiday partly converted into hours, to take in 1 hour units to meet personal commitments. The standard working week is 4½ days. Finishing at Friday lunch time gives additional flexibility for appointments and commitments

Norbar develops the skills required for employees to not only do their own jobs but alternative jobs within the Company to create flexibility, variety and promote engagement. It also actively encourages employees to undertake relevant self-study and personal development with some financial contribution.

A subsidised Restaurant facility is available to all staff at lunchtime offering excellent choice and value for money. Hot meals, vegetarian options, sweets, cakes and snacks are freshly prepared on a daily basis.

This facility has been awarded 8 'Eat Well in Cherwell' awards in the last few years, as recognition that it adopts a healthy attitude towards the food it provides and the environment in which it provides it.
