Konecranes UK's parts operation, based in Castle Donington in the Midlands, has received its ISO quality, environmental and health and safety accreditation.

It is the first Konecranes parts distribution centre to achieve this, the manufacturer said. The announcement is another step in the company’s two-year target to achieve ISO ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO18001 accreditation across each sector of its business, a spokesperson said.

So far the company has achieved ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation for its crane manufacturing business and ISO9001 for its machine tool service.

Paul Nagy, Konecranes director, head of parts, said, “This accreditation demonstrates to our constantly expanding customer base that our parts are supplied in a controlled manner and via a robust and proven systems infrastructure. It also emphasises the importance that Konecranes UK places on securing internationally recognised quality accreditation marks at all levels. This will now hopefully give them continued confidence to partner with Konecranes across all aspects of the cranes and lifting equipment supply chain.”

Pat Campbell, Konecranes director of market area West Europe, said, “Konecranes has always recognised the importance of quality accreditation. Indeed Konecranes was one of the foremost advocates of the ISO9001 quality mark that was first introduced over 20 years ago. Across all aspects of our business, quality remains of paramount importance, hence the decision to adopt a fully integrated approach at the start of last year. We are delighted with how successful the strategy has proven to be so far, and everyone is looking forward to bringing the two-year plan to fruition later this year.”
