The company, which was established in 1975 in the North East, has grown over the years and now has a nationwide commitment undertaking contracts throughout Great Britain for all the major contractors and numerous prestigious clients.
We are one of the leading specialist tiling contractors in the industry with an outstanding reputation for quality of work and dependability. In February 1992 we became the first tiling contractor to achieve BS5750 Part 2 Certification for Quality Assurance and have maintained and improved the standards ever since, our current standard being ISO 9001:2008.
Following our success in achieving Total Quality Management we turned our attention to enhancing the capabilities of our workforce through a structured training programme. We embarked on a series of initiatives to provide the facilities and support required to ensure that anyone in the company could access training specific to their particular needs.
In 1996 we started a modern apprenticeship scheme under the guidance of the CITB. This continues to run and has been a resounding success with apprentices enjoying specialist training to ensure that the company has a skilled workforce for the future; two UK National Skillbuild Champions bear testimony to that success. Our commitment to the ongoing development of our staff is reflected in the recent re-awarding of our Investor in People status which we first achieved in 1997.
The company has always taken our impact on the environment seriously and has for many years employed business practices and methods of working that sought to minimise our carbon footprint. More recently we chose to formalise our procedures and Environmental Management System and this culminated in June 2013 with our certification for ISO 14001:2004. Using this standard, we shall continue to strive to improve our environmental awareness, strengthen the ethos of the company and monitor our progress in running our business in a responsible and sustainable manner, encouraging suppliers and clients alike to improve with us.
Our philosophy is simply to be the best; we know this to be the only way forward.
