PPR Solutions has been awarded a prestigious award in recognition of their efforts to ensure the safety of their workforce and customers.
PPR provides bespoke, high-end, outsourced engineering services and was recently acquired by ByBox Field Support, the UK market leader in field service supply chain solutions.
The London-based engineering firm recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice among UK contractors.
Emanuel Andjelic, who founded the company with partners John Cushing and Tushir Patel, said: "We applied for SAFEcontractor accreditation, which has incredibly stringent requirements, for two reasons – to implement a uniform standard across our business and also as a way of recognising the hard work our staff have put into our health and safety systems.
"We’re delighted to receive the accolade, which reflects our dedication to the health and security of our staff and clients.
"SAFEcontractor is also increasingly important as more and more of our clients are asking for it during contract negotiations, which shows the esteem the award is held in."
John Kinge, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor, said: "Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove they have sound health and safety policies.
"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that PPR has. The firm’s high standard has set an example which will hopefully be followed by other companies within the sector."
Over one hundred and twenty major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or engineering and mechanical work.
PPR was started four years ago with a simple mission: provide fully managed engineering solutions on a variable cost basis. It has experienced rapid growth since its inception and was acquired by ByBox earlier this year.
ByBox provides PPR with the scale and technology required to make another step-change in growth, while PPR provides ByBox with the ability to provide ByBox’s customers with high-end outsourced engineering as part of Thinventory – ByBox’ end-to-end field service software platform.
