Following a rigorous application process, Marsh Industries is now fully registered as a supplier on Achilles UVDB (Utilities Vendor database).
UVDB is the utilities industry pre-qualification system used across the UK that helps utility companies manage risk within their supply chain and comply with international procurement legislation.
The company’s registration as a ‘Silver Plus’ supplier demonstrates that having completed the industry pre-qualification questionnaire, we have proved our capability to meet the relevant industry and legislative requirements. Being on the database will make procurement easier for potential customers by allowing them to apply their internal benchmarking standards to our profile – giving them an easier way to assess our suitability as a supplier.
Managing Director, Steve Boyer, states, “Being awarded the Achilles UVDB Certificate is an extremely important part of the company’s development.”
“With the on-going investment at our Somerset facilities producing civil and commercial off-mains drainage products, our registration with Achilles UVDB opens up opportunities for us to work with national utilities companies such as National Grid, Anglian Water, Thames Water, Wales & West Utilities, etc. This, when in combination with our BIM programme and third party Specification Platforms, will enable the company to enter a new and viable market over the next few years.”
UVDB Verify audit and assessment is performed independently by Achilles and provides a further rigorous assessment of a supplier’s risk, with a particularly strong focus on Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) requirements.
Over 30 utilities companies and more than 35 of their contracting partners use the UVDB system to qualify their supply chain through a standard assessment of their management systems and site performance.
