Our New Accreditations 6th July 2017
2017 has been a busy year so far for MIES and as part of our continued development, we have gained a number of new accreditations.
The company now operates a standardised quality management system in line with BS ISO 9001:2015 ensuring that our processes and document management meets the stringent requirements of such an accreditation. This was made possible thanks to the large investment we made in 2016 into our company-wide bespoke document management system and the hard work of our SHEQ Manager, Martyn Jones. As a qualified ISO 9001 Lead Auditor Martyn has been instrumental in ensuring MIES gained the accreditation at the first opportunity.
MIES Fire & Security have also gained NSI Silver, BAFE and FIA membership which gives all our clients the comfort that our installations are to the highest standards. Jake Williams, MIES Fire & Security Manager has worked tirelessly for the past few months to ensure we achieve the accreditations in record time so congratulations to him for all his hard work.
With these latest additions to our portfolio of accreditations, MIES is firmly placing itself as one of the leading Building Services contractors in the country.
