In August we had our annual surveillance audit on our quality system for ready mixed concrete from BSI which went extremely well with no NCR's raised. This was thanks to the effort of all the staff involved across the various disciplines in production, admin, operations and quality control. Having the kitemark standard ensures the highest of quality concrete for our clients.
In September we had our annual audit from Achilles for the UVDB standard of HSEQ in the Utilities sector. Again this went extremely well with a 100% Overall score and is credit to everyone at EMN Plant Ltd in maintaining a safe and high standard of service.
EMN Plant Ltd recently donated £600 to Dogs Against Drugs to support their ongoing work in Shetland. Megan Grant and her dog Oscar accepted this from Directors Christopher and Ellis Nicolson.
