We are pleased to announce that we have recently been audited by supply chain solutions specialist Achilles and have passed with flying colours. This means we are now an Achilles BuildingConfidence approved supplier for the UK construction industry.
The Achilles Building Confidence service is a supplier accreditation service for the UK construction industry. In short, Achilles makes doing business easier for everyone by creating a single process where buyers can find qualified partners, and suppliers can prove their credentials.
What it means to our customers?
Having an independent Achilles accreditation really matters to our customers. Achilles are committed to delivering the very highest standards across the board. This means that Cotterill Civils has been evaluated by a group of professionals from the construction sector looking to drive standards and promote industry best practice.
Achilles uses a single platform and questionnaire to streamline the supplier management process for all parties involved. Its registration, pre-qualification and risk management model is developed by buyers within specific industry sector communities, making it an effective way to on-board and manage suppliers. Rather than having to undertake a lot of administration work to evaluate a supplier each time a contract is awarded, the Achilles membership shortcuts this process, saving our customers the time and cost involved.
What it means to us?
The Achilles membership is one of a number of other accreditations that Cotterill Civils has achieved over the last 18 months, including ISO 9001 and Constructionline membership. Companies who achieve Achilles Accreditation gain a ‘shop window’ with some of the biggest companies in the construction sector.
Andrew Cotterill, MD of Cotterill Civils, commented: “At Cotterill Civils we are committed to providing our customers with an outstanding service at all times. The Achilles accreditation once again demonstrates our commitment to consistently improve and build upon these high standards. It also provides our customers with the added confidence that they are working with a renowned and trusted partner.”
