Our Culture

We take pride in our welcoming and rewarding culture at Avanti. Our teams stay motivated in our mission from a variety of team-building events: expect anything from team lunches to Birmingham Bulls games to Spartan Races! Our employees are excellent and we make sure to recognize them regularly through the employee newsletter and the Croda Stars Reward Program.


Giving Back

We believe that giving back to the community is great not only for our neighbors, but also our people. That’s why we encourage our employees to spend up to 1% of their annual working time to volunteer for an organization of their choice. Our Community Council at Avanti keeps us involved in community efforts, including a monthly dinner at the Ronald McDonald house that feeds over 50 families.
