GOJO Industries Europe, the European arm of one of the largest suppliers of hand hygiene products in the world, and a major supplier to the NHS in England, has achieved the management standard, ISO 9001. This demonstrates its on-going commitment to delivering a first class service to its ever-growing customer base. The European head office, which is based in Milton Keynes in the UK, achieved the accreditation earlier last year.
ISO 9001 recognises companies that have developed their internal working processes to help deliver greater consistency and quality of service. This accolade is a natural addition to ISO 14001, which GOJO Industries Europe achieved in 2012. This standard, linked to reducing resource usage, waste and costs, is an acknowledgement of the company's commitment to sustainability.
Mike Sullivan, managing director of GOJO Industries Europe, said: “The achievement of ISO 9001 is a welcome recognition of our dedication to providing the highest possible levels of customer service to our clients. I'd like to thank all GOJO Industries Europe employees for helping to make this happen - it was a real team effort. ISO 9001 is a natural progression from the attainment of ISO 14001 in 2012. GOJO Industries Europe helps its customers to achieve their own green aims through its products, by incorporating sustainable ingredients, recyclable packaging and energy saving elements, but it is also firmly committed to becoming a greener company itself. By the year 2015, GOJO has pledged to reduce: water usage by 30%, solid waste by 25% and greenhouse gases (GHG) by 5%. The latest results show that the company is well on the way to achieving these targets, with water usage already reduced by 20%, solid waste reduced by 4%, and GHG emissions reduced by a huge 30%. More results and information can be viewed in the GOJO Sustainability Report, which is available on our website.”
