IKO Polymeric has achieved the BES 6001 Standard for responsible sourcing of construction products.
The latest accreditation means that IKO’s Polymeric single ply and structural waterproofing plant at Clay Cross and its Grangemill site for Hot Melt and Mastic Asphalt now comply to BES 6001.
This follows on from Clay Cross, Grangemill and the bituminous and liquid membranes factory at Appley Bridge all achieving the ISO 14001 environmental management standard.
Both ISO 14001 and BES 6001 are increasingly specified on major projects, as more and more companies seek assurances on the environmental impact and responsible sources of construction materials used on site.
All materials must undergo a rigorous testing process and pass third party assessment against the requirements of the standard.
IKO PLC’s Group Managing Director, Andy Williamson comments: “Getting ISO 9001 and BES 6001 has been a high priority for IKO. As our company tagline spells out, IKO is ‘Setting the Standard’.
We aim for this in everything we do, from product innovation, service and support, to achieving relevant accreditations that confirm our commitment to quality and the environment.”
