Whether you arrive at our factories in Cheltenham or Hull, have a visit from a Service Engineer or pick up the phone to our Customer Service team, you'll instantly see that, no matter our department or location, we all share the same values at Kohler Mira.
From day one you're part of the Kohler Mira community - a collaborative, forward focused team with a shared pride in our work and commitment to delight our customers, develop innovative products and services and inspire our people (who knew a bathroom manufacturing company did all this?!)
