Accu's Path to Excellence

Accu is a young, ambitious, fast growth business that embraces technology and moves quickly to innovate - with the integration and synergy of AI and IoT in our procurement & manufacturing processes helping us to achieve exceptional customer experience scores.

These advancements have enabled Accu to grow and thrive in a highly competitive global market, all whilst adhering to our net-zero environmental targets and social responsibilities.

Accu would be nothing without its incredibly dedicated team of individuals, all pulling together to show the engineering sector what’s possible when you think outside of the box.

We’ve created a self-directing workplace that cultivates a culture of inclusion and belonging, whilst allowing everyone to bring ideas forward. Additionally, being a member of TeamAccu means that everyone, even our CEO works a 4-day week. Implemented permanently in 2022, without salary reduction, it has formed an important part of our culture.

We believe that this deep respect for our employees’ time and a strong focus on making Accu a great place to work, plays a huge part in our path to excellence. In short, if we’re all happy at work then we’re better equipped to make our customers happy.
