Vision Commercial Kitchens has announced that it has passed a rigorous independent assessment to secure Altius accreditation.
The catering equipment distributor said that qualifying as an Altius Assured Vendor means it can now forge links with blue chip businesses such as Morrisons, SGP Property and Facilities Management, General Healthcare Group, Punch Taverns, Arcadia Group and Spirit Pub Company.
Craig Forrester, managing director of Vision, said the accreditation demonstrates that it has all the necessary health and safety systems, insurance coverage, and other requirements in place to be a competent supplier to large corporate customers.
“Achieving this recognised standard proves our high level of competency. It will enable us to compete nationally for major contracts and boost our reputation as a quality supplier,” he said.
“The major corporate businesses who are partnered with Altius can have confidence in our abilities, and it gives us a golden opportunity to increase our sales. This adds to our already comprehensive portfolio of accreditations including ISO9001, ISO14001 and BS OHSAS 18001.”
Altius Vendor Assessment helps companies to assess, improve, monitor and assure their supply base to reduce their risk and liability and increase performance.
The robust online supplier accreditation and management system, which is free to clients and main contractors, takes a thorough evidence-based approach to checking the competences and financial health of suppliers.
