14th May 2024

Kilkern’s supply-chain management has had a resounding thumbs-up following its most recent Constructionline review.

The civil engineering and highways infrastructure specialist has been awarded Platinum status after its latest audit which verifies and assesses the management systems used by the supply chain for both quality and applicability.

Head of Health, Safety, Environment, and Quality compliance (HSEQ), Martin Gallagher believes that achieving the Platinum award is a real feather in the cap for the business and an important recognition of the hard work put in by the team to achieve the necessary standard.

“Platinum status is a fantastic reflection of the values and commitment within the business,” he said. “To achieve and maintain the membership level, we put ourselves through an additional level of scrutiny and it’s testament to the quality of the systems that we have in place that we’ve done so well.

“A large part of the audit relates to matters of health and safety – a subject we place huge emphasis on both within Kilkern and also at our vacuum excavation specialism VAC UK. The report recognised the contribution of our No Harm campaign and how it was contributes to an increased level of safety maturity.

“We are proud to have set a high bar for ourselves and for our supply chain. We know it gives clients great confidence and we will continue to push to new levels in coming years.”
