Gary Nicholls, chairman of the Ventilation Hygiene Branch of the HVCA Service and Facilities Group, is celebrating his company's achievement of a 'full house' of international quality accreditations.
For Essex-based Swiftclean - of which Nicholls is founder and managing director - has achieved certification under the international ISO 14001 environmental, ISO 9001 quality management and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety standards.
This impressive triple achievement was marked by a special presentation - made at Esca House, the HVCA's headquarters.
'At a time when many companies are looking to make cuts, it is refreshing to see Swiftclean making such a substantial commitment to quality,' said Rod Pettigrew, HVCA deputy chief executive.
Ventilation hygiene and legionella control specialist Swiftclean, which has its head office in Southend on Sea, has grown from modest beginnings 27 years ago to become a profitable, £4million turnover business employing more than 80 people.
