EAST Yorkshire company Filplastic has joined an elite band of racking suppliers to score top marks in an annual industry audit.

The company, based near Howden, scored an impressive 96 per cent on its recent audit by industry body SEMA (Specialist Equipment Market Association).

Just five other companies from across the UK scored more than 95 per cent on the demanding test.

The audit, which took place in August this year, looks at all aspects of a company’s processes and procedures, including health & safety, environmental policy, staff training, quality control and how companies manage accidents.

Filplastic scored top marks on almost all aspects of the examination, and immediately corrected the minor issues there were identified.

Managing director, Paul Taylor, said he was extremely proud of everyone at the company as they all had a hand in ensuring policies and procedures were adhered to.

“This is a fantastic result,” he said.

“The SEMA audit is very involved and digs deep into how companies in our sector operate.

“Because we’re installing racking that can be several metres high, it is imperative that we take the best possible care of the people in our business, and SEMA ensures we do that by subjecting everything we do to a thorough examination.”

Mr Taylor added that the audit went much further than just ensuring Filplastic’s staff and customers were safe.

“SEMA delve into all aspects of our business, and rightly so,” he said.

“Customers need to be confident we do everything properly with no corners cut, and our score in the audit is testament to that. It is a great result and I’m really proud of everyone who helped achieve it.”

SEMA exists to promote and extend the safe design, installation and use of storage equipment manufactured and supplied by its members.

Every member of SEMA has achieved or is committed to achieving BS EN ISO 9000 within the Quality Assurance Schedule (QAS 2000).

QAS 2000 was developed in conjunction with BSI and other leading authorities and organisations from the storage industry, and specifies the relevant codes of practice and standards for the industry.
