Our Success

The ability to anticipate growth industries, making shrewd investments during the good times and bad and applying meticulous attention to detail in all we do, are just a few of the reasons why we feel we have been successful on our growth journey to date. Our ambition for continued and sustainable growth remains as strong as ever, as does our ‘excellence as standard’ bottom line approach.

Strong family values and ethics within the Malhotra family have also been brought to the fore within the company with a second generation family member now on the Group Board. Corporate ethics and governance now take precedence within the Group, but remain underpinned by the values that the Malhotra family have held firm to over many generations.

Daft as a Brush

Since 2016, Malhotra Group PLC has had a nominated charity of the year. For the past 5 years, the group has ran different initiatives to help raise as much money as possible for the different charities. We have worked alongside both national and local charities, and so far, raised circa £75,000 for the amazing causes.

For 2020, our nominated charity for the year is Daft as a Brush, Cancer Patient Care. This deserving charity provides free of charge custom made vehicles to transport outpatients to and from hospitals such as the RVI and Freeman hospital who are undergoing Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy Cancer treatment. All the regions to be covered by Daft as a brush are; Northumberland, Newcastle Upon Tyne, North and South Tyneside.

As a company, we have pledged to raise a minimum of £7200 for the charity, this amount covers the cost of keeping one of their ambulances on the road for a full year. The ambulance we have sponsored is called ‘Gosforth Guardian’.
