Leading construction materials supplier Aggregate Industries has been re-certified for another three years of ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS), after being recognised for continually improving effectiveness and efficiencies across the business.
ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised QMS standard which is designed to help business plan, monitor and manage business quality and identify areas for improvement. Following the audit, the British Standards Institution (BSI) has recommended that Aggregate Industries be re-certified, after it found the firm to have zero non-conformances.
Being certified with ISO 9001, Aggregate Industries will continue to be in a position to display strong corporate governance, work effectively with stakeholders and the supply chain and be even more resilient as a business.
Guy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries UK, said: “This is a great achievement for the business and we thank all those involved in the re-certification. Constantly improving our processes in order to run efficiently aligns with our business objectives and we will continue to work to the best standard possible – with our customers always at the heart of what we do.”
The news follows on from Aggregate Industries receiving the ISO 45001 Standard in Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems certification in July 2020 and ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems certification in March 2020, after demonstrating a company-wide commitment to energy efficiency.
