Howarth gets the Kitemark

Published:  18 September, 2014

Howarth Timber Windows & Doors has become a BSI Kitemark-certified supplier.

This certification from the British Standards Institution demonstrates that Howarth follows best practice and is fully compliant with industry standards, including enhanced security (PAS 24). The BSI Kitemark is expected to help the company drive business, gain differentiation in the marketplace and continue to provide excellent service to its customer base.

Mick Toner, Howarth Windows & Doors’ factory manager, said: “We chose the BSI Kitemark because it’s easily recognisable and because of its association with good quality products. It gives our clients confidence in doing business with us, and it has helped to raise our profile as a manufacturer of high-quality products, delivering high levels of customer service.”
