Northern Joinery strengthens commitment to sustainability

Date published: 15 June 2019

Northern Joinery has joined the Supply Chain Sustainability School, having been awarded their silver level of recognition this month.

The Supply Chain Sustainability School offers businesses within the construction industry recognition for a commitment to sustainability throughout their supply chain, in addition to providing training and resources to those who want to enhance their commitment.

Northern Joinery Ltd was the first UK staircase manufacturer to be accredited to what is now ISO9001:2015, the international standard for quality management, in 1989.

It is also accredited to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) standards for chain of custody – ensuring that from forest to customer, its staircases are made from the sustainably sourced materials, harvested using the highest ethical standards.

David Broadbent, Managing Director, said: “We are pleased to have achieved silver status and to lend our support to the School’s aims by embedding sustainability in all that we do. We have always taken our ethical, environmental and social responsibilities extremely seriously, and will continue to do so for decades to come.”

With ever more focus on the responsibility of businesses of all sizes to reduce their impact on the environment, Northern Joinery Ltd’s achievement of silver level with the Supply Chain Sustainability School demonstrates the company’s commitment to remaining at the forefront of manufacturing technology and sustainability in the 21st century.

Northern Joinery has been trading from the same location in Whitworth, near Rochdale, for over 60 years. It manufactures staircases for individuals, local and national housebuilders alike, and delivers to customers all over the United Kingdom.
