We have achieved RISQS accreditation from the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) after flying through the scheme’s rigorous audits last month!
RISQS is a supplier qualification scheme that audits and assesses suppliers in order to pre-qualify businesses to work with over 110 buying organisations throughout the UK. The RISQS accreditation means that we are now able to tender for work within railway stations via infrastructure buyers, Network Rail, Transport for London and other train operating companies.
Tracey Jackson, marketing manager here at Howells Patent Glazing said, “We’re so proud of our team for helping us to achieve RISQS accreditation. We have all worked so hard in order to make sure that all of our systems and communications run like a well-oiled engine in order to pass RISQS rigorous audits. This is a big deal for our firm, and knowing that we are competing with some huge names in the industry is an incredible feeling. We’re looking forward to making the most of our new accreditation and seeing what 2017 has in store for our business”.
Having previously worked on railway stations including: Windsor Royal, Bristol Temple Meads, Melton Mowbray, Loughborough, Stoke-On-Trent and Kettering to name a few, we’re well on its way to becoming the first choice provider of patent glazing systems for rail stations across the UK!
Not only have we had 40 years’ worth of experience in the industry, but we’ve boasted new product launches, a collaboration with industry giant Pilkington UK to launch their Suncool One 60/40 glass, record breaking turnover and workplace NVQ’s for all staff – and that was just in 2016! Howells are set to go from strength to strength over the course of 2017, and hope that by investing in our marketing and trade-show appearances, we will see another 40 years of success.
Don’t forget to come and find us at The FIT Show on the 23rd-25th May, stand number CAB04, NEC Hall 8.
