AFI repeats five star success

27 March 2014

UK powered access rental company AFI-Uplift has achieved the 5 star Achilles BuildingConfidence rating for the third consecutive year following a recent reassessment.

Five stars are only awarded to suppliers that comply with all aspects of the certification for two or more consecutive years. To gain the general accreditation, companies have to demonstrate a high level of competence in health & safety, quality assurance and control, environmental management, sub-contractor and supplier management, among others.

AFI Director Nick Higgins said, “Gaining the top 5 star rating for the third year in a row is a fantastic achievement. Only a small proportion of BuildingConfidence accredited companies gain the 5 star rating and we are very proud to be one of them.”

Major contractors use the award to evaluate their supply chains. AFI became the first powered access rental company in the UK to achieve BuildingConfidence certification when it gained its first accreditation in 2008.
