ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015 Accreditation

Mechanica Utilities Ltd are proud to announce the accreditation of both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

The company Directors chose Businessflow Ltd (, to consult them through the process, with The British Assessment Bureau ( being the leading ISO certification body for the UKAS accreditation.

James Horsham (Managing Director for Mechanica) explained “both accreditations are important to the company’s growth, as they demonstrate we follow our policies and procedures. The Integrated Management System that we have adopted, means that ISO 9001 will improve our business efficiency and profit margins, which in turn will help us win and retain business, whilst ISO14001 will help us minimise the impact that Mechanica has on the environment, by managing and reducing our waste”.

Joe Thompson (Commercial Director for Mechanica) explained “whilst going through the audit process, it highlighted certain inefficiencies within our business, therefore allowing us to re-evaluate our operational procedures. The whole mechanism, from initial surveillance through to stage two auditing, was an extremely valuable process”.

Daniel Gunner (Engineering Director for Mechanica) explained “in achieving the accreditations it has enabled us to proceed with our ongoing investment programme, and roll out our latest job costing system (EMIR) six months earlier than planned. This will enable Mechanica to operate to its full potential and work hand in hand with both standards in a whole new level, to not only benefit us but more importantly benefit our customers”.
