J H Richards is very proud to announce that it has been certified to the coveted ISO-14001:2004 Environmental Management standard by the UKAS accredited company CCAS.
ISO 14001:2004 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system that exists to help organisations continually reduce their impact on the environment and comply with all laws, regulations and other requirements.
Ken Greenhall, Managing Director of J H Richards, explained
“This accreditation, along with our ISO 9001:2008 accreditation, demonstrates our commitment to continual improvement of our manufacturing processes and to meet our customer’s needs and the highest environmental standards. It also brings further credibility to our social responsibility, good stewardship and good citizenship associated with such a long-standing Birmingham based family company.
“We are also working towards OHAS 18001:2007 in 2016 which will confirm our commitment to safety at J H Richards. This will allow us to bid directly for the new nuclear build in order to secure our company’s future as a leading bearing supplier to the electricity supply industry.
He added that ”We have significantly reduced the waste being sent to land fill and reduced our Carbon footprint every year for the last three years. I am also very happy that we have managed to work with our major client’s to eliminate the alloying elements Cadmium and Lead from our range of alloys.”
