Gillespie UK, the largest volume manufacturer and producer of 3D GRG in Europe, has been awarded two ISO certifications by Auva including ISO 9001:2015 (quality management) and ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management).
The company worked with Temple QMS, to support the implementation of the systems. As a manufacturer of engineered internal cladding: Zerodec, Gillespie UK is well known for producing off-site fabricated materials capable of reproducing complex 3D shapes to enhance modern interiors, buildings, and public spaces and has supplied material extensively overseas into Ireland, mainland Europe, Middle East, Far East and Asia.
The material has been used in architectural finishes for distinguished marquee projects both in the UK and internationally, many of which incorporate cutting-edge designs into public spaces.
ISO 9001:2015 is the most widely recognised quality management standard in the world, developed and published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
As part of its quality management system development process, it helps companies align their quality management system with their global business strategy. Across all organisational processes, it promotes evidence-based decision-making and accountability for improving communications, operational efficiency, customer focus, and employee engagement.
With its Integrated Management System (IMS) approach, combining two management systems, it provides companies with the opportunity to streamline, save time, and operate more effectively on several different levels in a sustainable way, enhancing customer satisfaction and driving continuous improvement.
Bob Hughes – Director at Temple QMS said:
“It’s been a pleasure working with Gillespie UK. The adoption of an Integrated Management System will support the continued growth, consistency and client delivery for the company, all supported by improved environmental performance.”
Tony Barber – Director at Gillespie UK said:
“Being rewarded with these two certifications by Auva, is a testament to Gillespie UK’s dedication to providing the right foundation in place for our structure, and demonstrates our core value of putting customers at the heart of everything we do and consideration for the environment.”
About Gillespie UK:
Gillespie UK is the largest volume manufacturer, and lowest cost producer of 3D GRG in Europe. This brings greater certainty of supply, and continuity of delivery to large projects, reducing risks to programme extensions, and cost overrun.
Throughout 50 years of continuous material production, Gillespie has constantly sought to implement improvements in product manufacturing and processes.
In 2020, Zerodec provides the most geometrically accurate engineered GRG available, designed using 3D modelling software, created using CNC moulding
technology, and the highest quality raw materials:
- High quality hard alpha-hemihydrate gypsum plaster
- Continuous strand monofilament glass-fibre
- Patented polymers to achieve improved tensile strength and prevent the re-absorption of moisture from the atmosphere
- Clean potable water used in such proportion as to ensure maximum workability and the optimum water/plaster ratio for strength.
