Asset flies ahead with new Kitemark

Posted: Monday 28th February 2011

Asset International Ltd, has become the first plastic pipe manufacturer in Europe to achieve a Kitemark to the new BS EN 13476 standard across its entire Weholite product range.

The BS EN 13476 accreditation replaces the WIS 4-35-01 for plastic structured wall pipes used in non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage.

The Kitemark certification is recognised worldwide and gives products a recognised stamp of safety, quality and trust. Asset will undergo regular inspections to guarantee that its large diameter HDPE Weholite product consistently meets the requirements of the standard.

Managing director at Asset, Simon Thomas, said: “To achieve a Kitemark certification across our whole product range demonstrates the quality and integrity of Weholite and reinforces what our existing customers already know.

“The accreditation will stand us in good stead as we endeavour to expand our market share in the existing sectors in which we operate as well as enter new markets. It also offers contractors reassurance in the quality of our product.”

The Kitemark recognition follows Asset’s recent achievement of the UVDB Verify accreditation for high standards in health and safety, environmental and quality.

Asset International Ltd design and manufacture Weholite for a variety of schemes of all sizes including flood alleviation, marine outfall and ventilation projects.
