ATi achieved high standards through external assessment of our integrated management practices and procedures and has now progressed to a category B1 registered supplier.
With above average scores for Quality (93%), Health & Safety (88.7%) and Environment (84.9%), ATi was awarded the certification during a company and site visit. The UVDB Verify Scheme enables the major players within the Utilities environment to access all the ATi pre-qualification documentation, reports and results by computer, therefore eliminating the lengthy pre-qualification period before any tender process can begin.
Achilles operates the UVDB supplier management service on behalf of all the major UK utility organisations and works with more than 700 of the world’s largest companies across a range of industry sectors. By passing this strict certification process, ATi is able to assure its customers that its processes meet and exceed best practice benchmarks for a system and solution provider.
Through the Achilles Practices Certification, ATi further optimised its capabilities to deliver secure systems to its customers. Additionally, ATi can support a key component of their customers’ corporate risk management programs.
Mike Strahand, ATI General Manager Europe, said: “We are very proud to be formally recognised as a ‘bench marked’ potential on-site service and technical support provider to our customers.
“This certification approval highlights our commitment to achieving excellence in all that we do for our customers. It also reflects our continuing ‘value for money’ approach, which has fuelled our ongoing growth and expansion of the products and services that we offer.”
