Duravit UK Ltd Case Study

Providing Employee Benefit Advice

Duravit AG produces an extensive range of sanitary ware ceramics and bathroom furniture for an international market. The company operates 10 production plants worldwide and employs a workforce of more than 5,000 employees. Their UK operation (Duravit UK Ltd) is based in Milton Keynes.

Steve Cook has provided employee benefit advice for Duravit UK Ltd since 2009. When Angela Rodger joined the company she recommended using Lonsdale Benefit Consultants, as Steve had provided employee benefit advice for her previous company.

Steve recommended replacing the Duravit UK Ltd stakeholder pension scheme with a group personal pension scheme through Aegon, and he also set up income protection and group life cover schemes with BUPA.

Auto Enrolment for Duravit UK Ltd

The company is currently working with Steve on their auto enrolment project. Steve presented to staff recently and has encouraged them to use contractual joining to potentially avoid having to assess staff for auto enrolment suitability. This should enable Duravit UK Ltd to achieve their staging date, and offers their staff the opportunity to join the group pension scheme.

Duravit UK Ltd benefits from having a dedicated pension administrator. Dawn Overton is based in Lonsdale Benefit Consultant’s St Albans office and administers their pension scheme and answers queries for individual scheme members.
