Poundfield were awarded with the CE Mark accreditation for a second year, following an intensive assessment by the BSI, presented by assessor John Clackin, client manager.

The assessment reviewed the management systems and the conformity of the Factory Production Control in respect of the following British standards:

EN 15258:2005 – Precast concrete products. Retaining wall elements

EN 15037-1:2008 – Precast concrete products. Beam and block floor systems

EN 14992:2007 – Precast concrete products. Wall elements

The company’s compliance with the regulations, set out by the standards applicable to the above construction products, and satisfactory fulfilment by the factory production control of all the prescribed requirements sees the CE Mark accreditation re-awarded to the Poundfield.

‘To be awarded the accreditation for the second year is a great testament to the management and staff of the company. We have worked extremely hard improving the management systems and controls which in turn brings significant benefits to the company. To have the BSI approval and CE Mark on our products for our customers is reassurance that they are buying a quality product from a quality manufacturer’ says Matt Moss, finance director.

Poundfield will now look in the direction to continue to improve management systems, with the intention to move to the next stage of further accreditations.
