  • Ashbridge Roofing Achieve Gold in Constructionline

    Ashbridge Roofing

    Scunthorpe firms Hales & Coultas and Ashbridge Roofing have both achieved Gold in Constructionline.  

    Constructionline is the UK’s largest register of contractors, consultants and material suppliers for the construction industry.  

    The two firms are part of the Ongo partnership, who have a commitment to provide high quality services to all their customers, and having two of their commercial businesses rated as gold with Constructionline demonstrates this.  

    Both firms have previously been silver accredited in Construction Line, and achieved gold in their latest audit. There are just 27 companies in the North Lincolnshire region that are gold accredited, and Ashbridge Roofing is the only one in its industry in the area. 

    Being gold accredited means that both Hales & Coultas and Ashbridge Roofing meet higher levels of criteria in the standard of service they provide. Ashbridge and Hales & Coultas were subject to high levels of scrutiny and have now demonstrated that they meet strict industry and government standards, including the Health and Safety SSIP criteria, which shows how organisations comply with health & safety legislation.  

    Hales & Coultas Manager, Andy Hales, said: “It is a fantastic achievement to be gold accredited with Constructionline, and it really shows how committed we are to providing the best possible service to our customers.” 

    Ashbridge Manager, Graham Alcock, said: “We are incredibly proud to receive the gold accreditation, it shows the big steps we’ve taken in increasing the professional standards at Ashbridge and this will definitely help us to grow our business in order to meet our ambitious targets.”
