Adcock gains quality and H&S certification

Adcock-logoUK: Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning has recently been recognised for both its quality management and health and safety procedures.

In addition to attaining the quality management certification ISO 9001, the Cambridge-based contractor has also gained the health and safety certificate OHSAS 18001.

The health and safety standards of the Company were also recognised in February and March this year by construction firm MACE MEP when it received Health & Safety League winner certificates for its work on the Elm House project as well as individual health and safety recognition for engineer Joe Sullivan.

In addition to the growing list of accreditations, Adcock has also been shortlisted for Family Business of the Year Award 2016 for the East & East Anglia region. The winner will be announced on June 2 at a special awards presentation evening at the May Fair Hotel in London.

Nigel Claydon, managing director at Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning said “Our primary aim is to deliver service excellence in all that we do, as well as keeping our staff and those around them, safe at all times. Investing in quality and people is what makes Adcock a leader in its field and an exceptional company to work for. It’s also why over 85% of our work is repeat business, a statistic which we are very proud of.”
