Gripsure celebrates double ISO accreditation for quality and environmental sustainability

Gripsure is celebrating after achieving two prestigious international accreditations.
We have been awarded ISO 9001, for quality management systems, and ISO 14001, for environmental management. ISO is an independent global organisation, which sets rigorous international standards across all types of businesses. Gripsure’s accreditations are in place for three years and include annual site visits from an ISO representative.
To achieve both accreditations, we had to demonstrate well-structured processes and problem solving across our operations, from designing and manufacturing new products to tracking and delivering orders. To achieve ISO 14001, we also provided detailed evidence of how we are minimising our environmental impact across our activities.
Gripsure Managing Director Mike Nicholson said: “Quality and environmental sustainability are the two values that Gripsure is absolutely committed to. We have always been passionate about consistently delivering the highest quality products and service to our customers. In recent years, we have also taken great steps towards environmental sustainability, from working with sustainable FSC and PEFC certified timber to reducing waste. We have now taken this a step further by signing up to a commitment of becoming a net zero carbon business.
Gripsure already enjoys a strong reputation, with consistently positive feedback. Being awarded these prestigious international accreditations by an independent body, however, will give our customers that extra confidence in the quality and environmental sustainability of our products and services.
Gripsure Finance Director Robin Olver added: “When we decided to go for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 we knew we were already part way to meeting the ISO’s high standards. Taking those extra steps needed to achieve the accreditations meant building on Gripsure’s culture of problem solving, collaboration and continuous improvement.
For us, achieving these two accreditations is not a tick-box exercise. The process has been genuinely positive and has given us the opportunity to bring together the vast wealth of knowledge and experience across our team.
Being an ISO accredited business means providing consistently high quality, environmentally sustainable products and customer service. Our larger commercial customers will recognise these global accreditations, which demonstrate that Gripsure’s products meet the highest international standards.
