Cordelta believes that the local community is an important part of our environment and we aim to utilise local service and product suppliers wherever possible.

“We live in the community and believe that everything is connected” says Cordelta’s Managing Director Ken Gutterson. “We don’t exist on an island. If we can help each other there are better outcomes for everyone.”
