FOR the second year in a row, specialist tyre supplier, Tyre Boss, has successfully achieved ISO 9001: 2015 accreditation – an achievement which is more commonly found among larger businesses that have quality teams dedicated to gaining the ISO standard.
As a smaller business it takes a lot of hard work and resource to gain the standard whilst keeping the business running at maximum capacity. However, Wayne Collins, who co-owns and runs the business with wife Victoria, is adamant it is worth the effort.
“Gaining this ISO certification is critical to our business as it gives confidence to our large waste and recycling customers that, despite being a smaller company, we are highly professional and meet all the desired quality standards,” he said.
“Vick has worked tirelessly to achieve the award and huge kudos to her for managing the process whilst also dealing with the business in these very challenging times.”
The Government has announced in recent weeks that waste sector employees are considered ‘key workers’ and, as such, are needed to carry on working during the coronavirus pandemic. Coupled with an increase in waste – a byproduct of unnecessary panic buying – the sector is set to be hugely busy throughout the duration of the pandemic.
As such, Tyre Boss will remain open to support customers with materials handling machines operating in the sector.
“Our solid tyres are ideal for machines in the hazardous waste sector because they provide a durable, puncture free solution,” continued Wayne. “We will be here to support our customers in the sector for as long as we are required.
“We have implemented social distancing protocol on site and it is working well, and we have plenty of stocks for all makes and sizes of machine, so we can respond quickly to call outs.”
