Compliant, who were launched by managing director, Mark Henderson, in 2017, were exhibiting at the North East Expo in 2021 when they met Salicru UK.

Following an initial conversation at the expo, further discussions and meetings took place, with Salicru UK appointing Compliant as their ISO consultant to gain UKAS accredited ISO 9001 (quality) & 27001 (information security) standards.

ISO standards are becoming increasingly necessary for businesses looking to grow, tender for public sector contracts or for inclusion in specific frameworks, resulting in Compliant experiencing a dramatic increase in enquiries during the past 18 months.

Salicru UK, who are based in Durham’s Portland House, offer a wide range of uninterruptable power supplies (UPS’s), variable frequency drives and transformers to businesses across the UK. Owner, Carl McCammon, was keen to gain the two ISO standards to demonstrate to prospective clients their commitment to quality and information security.

Upon gaining the standards, Carl commented, “As we wanted to grow the business, I knew that gaining the ISO standards would be integral to us, not only would it enable us to tender for larger contracts but it would also streamline our processes and ensure we are offering the very best service to our clients.”

Following our initial meeting at the North East Expo, it was great to work with the Compliant team, they made everything straightforward for us and were with us every step of the way and helped make the ISO process pain free. We’re delighted to have gained the standards and look forward to working with Compliant on an ongoing basis to support us in maintaining the management systems.”

Compliant managing director, Mark Henderson, who is a BSI trained lead auditor, commented, “Salicru UK are a great company to work with and we were delighted they chose us as their consultant after initially meeting at the Chamber Showcase within the NE Expo.

We work hard to ensure that our clients experience as minimum disruption as possible when going through the ISO process and also reduce the resources in terms of time and cost.

There is a common misconception that gaining ISO standards is expensive and time-consuming however with our support, cost-effective plans and monthly payment options, we do everything we can to make sure the process is as easy as possible, all the while providing a first-class service.

As a company, we are accredited to the five main ISO standards ourselves too, this gives our clients the reassurance of knowing that we practice what we preach, we go through the exact same processes as our clients so are in a perfect position to advise, guide and support our clients.

We’re looking forward to working with the Salicru UK team in the future and helping more businesses throughout the UK to gain ISO certification.”
