Quality triple score for the Wrennalls Group
The Wrennalls Group, a Lancashire based carpet cleaning consultancy, is celebrating a triumph for excellence across its management systems dealing with quality, health & safety and environmental accountability by achieving IS0 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and BS OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety. The three accreditations apply across the whole of the Wrennalls Group and all its associated companies.
"The Wrennalls Group is growing all the time - most recently with the addition of Columbus Cleaning Machines to its portfolio," says Shaun Bradbury Managing Director of Wrennalls. "So to achieve these ISO accreditations not only in quality management, but now in health & safety and environmental management, demonstrates our commitment to running our businesses in the most professional, efficient and safe way possible. Columbus Cleaning Machines together with Wrennalls, Oates Laboratories UK, Dry Fusion, M2 Care and Cleaners Warehouse form a group where excellence is core to its business mission."
ISO 9001:2008 is recognised worldwide. It requires organisations to demonstrate that they have a quality management system to ensure consistency and continuous improvement; leading to higher levels of performance and customer satisfaction. The revised 2008 standard has a much greater focus on the management and measurement of business processes and their continuous improvement.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management, like all other ISO accreditations, is a voluntary standard that assists companies to continually improve their environmental performance whilst complying with any relevant legislation.
OHSAS 18001:2008 is the International Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard. It primarily addresses occupational health and safety rather than product safety. It provides a framework for companies to assist in their effective management of OH&S including compliance with legislation that applied to their activities and identified hazards.
Wrennalls was formed in 1985 with a view to bringing high quality, affordable cleaning services to the public and to businesses throughout the North West and beyond. The company has since moved forward both in terms of its client base and in its use of the latest technology.
Originally offering consumers and commercial clients the best possible carpet, upholstery, hard floor and rug cleaning services, it widened its remit in the last five years, taking advantage of the industry knowledge of its director and managers and becoming a prominent consultant to some of the UK's leading carpet manufacturers, advising them as to long term carpet and floor care.
Using the latest technologies and techniques afforded by the groundbreaking Dry Fusion Carpet Care System, nowadays the Wrennalls Group provides the highest standard of quality carpet cleaning and maintenance services.
The group has also facilitated the development of an online warehouse: Cleaners Warehouse, a one stop shop for all cleaning products.
More recently two new companies have been added to the ranks of the Wrennalls Group: Oates Laboratories UK , the UK arm of the ED Oates PTY in Australia which houses such well known brands as Research Products and Citrus Resources. Also an exciting import agreement to work exclusively with German based floor cleaning machine manufacturer, Columbus Cleaning Machines has been brokered and this new operation will trade as Columbus Cleaning Machines - a division of the Wrennalls Group.
