A NORTH Yorkshire industrial shredder manufacturer has been awarded three industry accreditations.

Boroughbridge-based UNTHA UK has achieved ISO9001, 14001 and 18001 certifications in recognition of its commitment to quality, environmental, and health and safety management.

UNTHA UK’s managing director Chris Oldfield said: “Our drive towards greater teamwork and efficiency began with our organisational restructure earlier in 2014.

"The business has grown by 500 per in only two years, so it is important that we remain a close-knit and well organised team as we continue to expand. These latest ISO achievements complement the changes we’ve already started to make.

“It can take companies up to two years to obtain these three standards, so for us to be successfully certified for all, in one go, is a fantastic accomplishment. It reflects the collaborative efforts of our team and shows our unswerving dedication to doing business properly.”

The accreditations were awarded following in-depth audits of the company’s processes, culture, knowledge and operating performance.

Mr Oldfield added: “The hat-trick tells our clients, peers and prospects that we’ll operate safely, effectively and efficiently, because these standards are in fact the very minimum level of compliance that we will commit to.”
