Oakworth Takes Gold!
Oakworth has been awarded Gold level membership of the Structural Timber Association (STA) in recognition of the company achieving high levels of quality and performance across a range of industry standards.
From the company’s long-term commitment to CE compliance to a recent quality management system audit resulting in ISO 9001 certification, Oakworth holds an impressive set of accreditations. John Capper, MD, explains why Oakworth decided to go for Gold…
Our reputation is built on a firm commitment to delivering consistently high standards and technical excellence whilst prioritising safety and sustainability. And whilst achieving STA Assure Gold provides Oakworth customers with the confidence and reassurance that their project is in safe hands, it’s also a shining example to the construction market that the structural timber industry means business.
The use of structural timber continues to grow and now accounts for over 27 per cent of the low rise construction market – which is fantastic news for the sector. The structural timber industry has come a long way but we need to continue to raise standards and make ourselves known as a credible solution to housing needs. Oakworth is one of only a few companies in the UK to achieve the STA Assure Gold qualification yet high profile commercial customers expect the highest level of quality assurance. It will be great to see more STA members on the podium!
