To mark this achievement, John Hartley, MD of QAIC will visit the Newhouse Depot on 22nd February 2017 to present a signed, framed certificate. Senior Management would like to take this opportunity to express their gratitude to the compliance team and all Newhouse staff who took part in the preparations and all the hard work put in to achieve BRC with AA standard recognition.
Freddy Solomon, Malcolm Logistics, Director of Warehouse Operations & Business Development said:
"We fully understand how critical it is to our customers to have complete confidence in our ability to uphold supply chain integrity. The standard has necessitated that we built a culture around quality that involves everyone, at all levels within the Logistics Division. Our staff recognise that our continued re-certification to the standard is now an established part of our operating profile, and that re-certification as a process helps us further promote “Continuous Improvement” to ensure consistency and confidence throughout the supply chain.”
