Complying with Constructionline’s premier criteria 08 January 2024

Fastener manufacturer, EJOT, has been approved as a Constructionline Premier member, with its range of high performance concrete anchoring solutions, including LIEBIG heavy-duty anchors, now available for main contractors and public sector project teams to specify and procure through the Constructionline platform.

EJOT’s approval means the company has been verified to operate to the highest ethical and quality standards under the latest membership structure and has complied with Constructionline’s enhanced assessment criteria in areas including environmental management, quality management and equal opportunities’ policies.

As a result, buyers involved in major public sector building and infrastructure projects can find valid information on EJOT’s fastening systems in Constructionline’s supplier database, including EJOT’s building envelope solutions and its LIEBIG heavy-duty anchors, the latter having been used globally since the 1980s in a wide variety of applications, including nuclear power facilities, military establishments, tunnels, bridges and other safety critical, high load installations.

EJOT UK’s structural anchoring specialist, Paul Papworth, said: “We’re really pleased to have been approved as a Constructionline Premier member, because we know how important it is for buyers on major projects to have total confidence in their supply partners – particularly for safety critical applications, like anchoring into concrete.”

Originally created as a government department more than 20 years ago, Constructionline supports thousands of businesses across the public and private sectors by connecting buyers and suppliers. It increases opportunities for members, such as EJOT, to access a wide range of procurement contracts and projects, while at the same time giving buyers access to a validated pool of high-quality suppliers, working to enhanced PAS 91 criteria.

The depth of the assessment and scrutiny involved in the Constructionline scheme means no aspect of a supplier’s business goes untouched. As part of EJOT’s Constructionline verification process, it submitted a variety of quality specific documentation, ranging from its ISO 9001:2015 certificate and ethical and equality policies, to information detailing the company’s ‘Carbon Reduction Plan 2035’ and the data to demonstrate its reduction efforts to date.
