We are pleased to announce that The National Federation of Builders (NFB) has appointed ISOQAR, one of the Alcumus operating companies, as a National Associate Member.

The arrangement means that construction firms with NFB membership can enjoy benefits such as preferential rates when they use ISOQAR to gain their ISO 9001 certification.

Members who are already in an ISO 9001 accreditation scheme can transfer to ISOQAR as their auditor free of charge. In addition to this, they can also offer preferential rates for further accreditations such as ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 27001.

Martin Smith, CEO of Alcumus Group said: “We have been providing expert services to help businesses achieve and maintain ISO 9001 accreditation for 20 years, including considerable experience in working with those in the construction industry.

“I am delighted that the NFB has recognised this experience by making us a National Associate Member. ISO 9001 can bring significant benefits to NFB members, such as opening up new tendering and supply chain opportunities, with the potential to win valuable new business.”
