For a Thirteenth Year, Metal Supermarkets UK Receives ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Accreditation

Metal-Supermarkets-UK-Earns-ISO-90012015-and-ISO-140012015-Accreditation style=Metal Supermarkets UK, the world’s largest supplier of small quantity metals, has been given ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accreditation by the IQS UK Standards Audits Division for the thirteenth year in a row. These awards are granted in recognition of continuous excellence in Quality Management and Environmental Management systems.

Metal Supermarkets’ commitment to its clients in the United Kingdom is highlighted by numerous ISO certifications, which demonstrate remarkable process improvements and standard application.

“We are honoured to have received this accreditation for a thirteenth year,” stated Metal Supermarkets President and CEO Stephen Schober. “We are committed to consistently enhancing our operations in the UK and upholding the excellent standards that Metal Supermarkets consumers expect.”

Each Metal Supermarkets UK location must implement a documented Quality Management System incorporating all policies and procedures, as well as an internal commitment to maintain employee competence and awareness through on-going training and a thorough review of environmental responsibilities, in order to achieve ISO certifications.

The lone franchised Metal Supermarkets location in West Bromwich has upheld the standards set forth by the ISO and has been awarded ISO 9001:2015, in addition to the corporate locations. The West Bromwich location has demonstrated their commitment to the Metal Supermarkets brand while effectively seeking to provide quality products and services.

ISO 9001 is the most commonly used Quality Management Systems (QMS) standard in the world, with over 1.1 million certificates given to firms in 178 different countries. It is given to companies who regularly provide high-quality products and services, improve efficiency, and increase customer happiness.

Companies that have implemented environmentally friendly practises in their business processes are recognised by ISO 14001 certification. It is given to companies that are working to increase resource efficiency, waste reduction, and cost reduction.

“All year, Our teams work tirelessly to acquire the ISO certifications,” stated James Headifen, Director of Franchise Development and Operations at Metal Supermarkets UK. “Receiving accreditation for the thirteenth year demonstrates our dedication to provide effective and safe service to our consumers.”

In 2009, Metal Supermarkets earned their first ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications. Metal Supermarkets was re-accredited after successfully demonstrating its processes to an independent external auditor, who confirmed that they were being carried out in accordance with defined policies and stringent criteria.
