Stonhard UK, a manufacturer of high-performance epoxy and resin floors, has achieved Level 4 Contractor/Installation Achilles Accreditation.
Achilles is one of the world’s leading global supply chain risk management companies. The accreditation allows participating corporations such as Aston Martin, Shell, Network Rail, ABB, Baker Hughes, Jaguar Land Rover and many others to minimise their buying risk, streamline and reduce cost of procurement using pre-approved suppliers.
As part of the supplier audit, Achilles reviewed Stonhard’s level of management controls, legislation and regulations compliance, risk management controls, quality management controls, training and competence, ethical behaviour and sustainability, supply chain management, and emergency preparedness.
Stonhard customers and prospects which participate in the Achilles programme can now save time and cost of procurement using a standard pre-qualification questionnaire.
