Hallamshire Engineering Services, a leading UK manufacturer of materials handling equipment, including pulleys, rollers and conveyors, has been accredited to the latest ISO9001:2015 Quality Management Standard.

The company, part of Group Rhodes, achieved the standard through the efforts of its team in aligning quality processes to the existing standards already in operation by the group’s other businesses, Craven Fawcett and Rhodes Interform, at its new factory in Wakefield.


Mark Ridgway, Group Rhodes’ Chief Executive, said: “Retaining a high level of quality is an essential element in achieving our business objectives and securing a competitive advantage. It is important that quality is recognised as not only applying to our end products and services, but also as an integral part of our operations”.

He continues: “Our processes are lean and efficient, yet we continually work at improving the skills of our most valuable asset – our workforce.  Each and every employee in our organisation is responsible for ensuring their particular processes are as efficient as they can be, and the management team in turn provide essential training resources to support this task”.


The ISO9001:2015 standard was achieved through a programme of internal audit against the policies, procedures and processes that make up the company’s Quality Management System.  A team of qualified auditors guided by Group QHSE Manager, Graham Howard carried out a full assessment of Hallamshire Engineering Services’ Quality Management System, after which the company was awarded the highly valued accreditation by UKAS.

Speaking on behalf of Hallamshire Engineering Services, Operations Manager Neil Bettley, said: “This standard demonstrates that Hallamshire Engineering Services operates a management system that is not only accredited to international standards, but has been built on a culture of continuous improvement. We look forward to continuing to exceed our customers’ expectations with respect to the quality of our products and services”.
