Merseyside team announce BRC AA accreditation
16 Aug 2019
The team at Boxes and Packaging (Merseyside) is delighted with the retention of its BRC Class AA status accreditation at a recent audit.
Having reached AA status in 2018, an improvement from A rating in 2017 and 2016, the team has been working diligently to ensure the status was retained and that any areas for improvement recognised at the audit were kept to a minimum.
Working with a third party consultancy has allowed them to make those all important small changes to achieve their target with only three areas recognised for improvement against a hugely comprehensive audit.
“This is excellent news for us all at Merseyside and is an achievement that we can be proud of,” said Stefan Weig Managing Director Boxes and Packaging (Merseyside). “Credit must be given to Terri Lewis who has been instrumental in handling our quality management procedures and in helping the team to reach these previously unattained standards.”
Since the 2018 audit, changes have been made to workplace transport systems and procedural improvements. Furthermore, staff and management are now an integral part in BRC at Merseyside understanding what it is, how it is achieved and recognising that it is a team effort.
“Achieving this standard is not something that is given easily and the team at Merseyside have made excellent progress since last year,” said Stacey Austin Northern Regional Managing Director Boxes and Packaging. “It shows the ongoing commitment of the team, and Boxes and Packaging, to produce quality packaging products and strive for the highest standards in all our operations.”
