ISO 14001 certification highlights company's commitment to best practice, but more can still be done, says director.

Total castings solutions provider, Grainger & Worrall, has gained ISO 14001 certification across all of its sites following the recent accreditation of its Telford facility.

The latest ISO certification follows the Shropshire firm’s drive for environmental best practice across all of its sites. It also coincides with a £400,000 investment in infrastructure for a new natural gas grid connection at the company’s Bridgnorth facility.

Grainger & Worrall quality systems manager Geoff Tillson said the latest certification confirmed his company’s reputation for commitment to best practice and drive for improvements to its environmental performance and waste reduction targets.

“The ISO 14001 accreditation provides distinct criteria for environmental and business management systems, which we are continually committed to develop and exceed,” he said.

Company director, Edward Grainger, said during recent months the company had invested in measures to further improve its quality and environmental standards, but that there was always more they could do. He said the company would not become complacent with its recent accreditation and would continue to push for improved sustainability.
