IKO’s Appley Bridge factory attains ISO 14001 certification

Published:  05 August, 2015

IKO has achieved the environmental standard ISO 14001 for its bituminous and liquid membranes factory based in Wigan, Appley Bridge.

All three of the waterproofing and roofing product manufacturer’s factories now comply with environmental standards. Its Clay Cross plant in Chesterfield and site at Grangemill Quarry have both already achieved the accreditation.

“As a company we’re focused on recycling raw materials, reducing packaging, cutting energy and water consumption and monitoring logistics to minimise environmental impact,” said group managing director, Andy Williamson.

“IKO’s continued investment in environmental and energy performance across all sites will remain a priority.”

Group safety health and environmental manager, Jon Pickup, said: “Achieving ISO 14001 across all three UK sites is a great achievement for IKO and an acknowledgment of the hard work that everyone has put in to achieve it.”
