More Certifications for R3
Following on from another successful year, and fresh from being "Highly Commended" in the "Best Contractor" category at the 2013 Housing Excellence Awards, R3 Repairs Limited (our subsidiary maintenance company) has achieved a further two major certifications – ISO 18001 and OHSAS 14001. Reaching this point is a key milestone for the company as this completes the suite of certifications that the company initially set out to achieve.
Our Chief Executive, Martin Pollhammer, commented:
"This is fantastic news, and well ahead of schedule. These certifications are important because not only do they demonstrate the company’s commitment to the environment and health and safety, but they are helpful to us in bidding for new contracts, both within and outside the housing association sector. In common with other certifications, we reached the required standard at our first assessment – a tremendous achievement by all the staff involved."
"It's hard to believe that the company is just entering its fourth trading year – in addition to the certifications, R3 has won several major awards and a number of contracts with new customers – it already employs more staff than ELHA and pretty soon its turnover will be bigger too. However, it is a competitive market and we need to keep our feet on the ground, but it goes without saying that a little celebration of these achievements is perfectly in order!"
