Kestrel

Top of the podium for Kestrel with sixth consecutive gold standard

  • 19 Nov 2018

Kestrel has proved sustainable sourcing is at the heart of its business after achieving the BES 6001 for the sixth consecutive year.

The accreditation means installers, specifiers and distributors can have faith that Kestrel’s fascias, cladding, soffits and trims meet high standards of sustainability.

Kestrel sales and marketing director Owen Thorogood talked about BES 6001, which the Lincolnshire manufacturer of PVC-UE roofline, cladding and window-line products has held since 2012.

“It’s a true ‘gold standard’ in sustainability and shows our customers that they are buying the best, not just in terms of quality fascia, cladding and roofline products, but in our supply chain and manufacturing process,” he said.

The BES 6001 standard scores Kestrel for issues such as material traceability, business ethos, health and safety and waste management within its supply chain.

Kestrel faces an independent audit every 12 months in order to keep the accreditation – this year saw the company improve its score.

Owen added: “While we are proud of having the BES 6001, we are also committed to improving wherever we can.

“This increased score shows that we are working with a reliable and even more sustainable supply chain of companies that hold themselves to the same high standards as Kestrel.”

Recent years have seen the brand invest over £10 million in new manufacturing technology and equipment.
