The accolade is the latest step in Konecranes’ target to secure ISO accreditation across each sector, industrial crane manufacturing, service and crane maintenance, machine tools and parts.

Paul Nagy, director head of parts at Konecranes said: "Each and every member of the UK parts team is delighted to share in what is an unprecedented and fantastic achievement within Konecranes globally.

"It is testimony to the hard work, effort and endeavour that everyone has shown when it comes to the three core areas of health and safety, quality and environmental."

He added: What’s more, it demonstrates to our constantly expanding customer base that our parts are supplied in a controlled manner and via a robust and proven systems infrastructure. It also emphasises the importance that Konecranes UK places on securing internationally recognised quality accreditation marks at all levels."

The latest accreditation follows on from last August in which the company’s crane manufacturing business became ISO9001 and ISO14001 accredited, which means it is now on track to secure ISO18001 certification this August.

In addition, Konecranes Machine Tool Service, which holds the ISO9001 quality standard, is aiming to add ISO14001 and ISO18001 in July.
