HMG Paints Receives Supply Chain Accreditation
This month, U.K.-based coatings manufacturer HMG Paints announced in a press release that they have received the Joint Supply Chain Accreditation (JOSCAR), indicating that the company has demonstrated its commitment to credentials and the industry. The accreditation reportedly follows the company becoming Cyber Essentials Certified, as well as a member of Make UK Defence.
JOSCAR is used as a repository for compliance information and pre-qualification to determine if suppliers are “fit for business," recognized by large purchases such as Boeing, Raytheon, Rolls Royce and more. The accreditation is expected to aid HMG in developing sales to large purchasers in the defense industry and other markets.
“We are delighted to have gained the JOSCAR supplier accreditation” commented Alan Sharples, Defence Sales Manager at HMG Paints.
“The award is testament to the investment and innovation we’ve made into the business and the marketplace over the last few years. It also represents a huge opportunity area for us and we’re excited to start working with the businesses who utilize JOSCAR to find suppliers.”
HMG Paints is based in Britain, which they say allows for “fast delivery across its entire range.” The company stated that this can benefit businesses currently using JOSCAR.
“With pre-qualification via JOSCAR we are looking forward to getting started on some very exciting projects with members” added Sharples.
“Being a British SME, we can manufacture and deliver products fast and now with JOSCAR accreditation we can do it even faster by removing pre-qualification and reducing procurement timescales.”
According to the release, HMG also signed the Armed Forces Covenant with the nation, promising to protect veterans in the country by providing access to housing, jobs, healthcare and more.
HMG Defence claims to offer products that are free from Chrome VI, meet low VOC requirements and are IRR and CARC resistant.
The HMG Defence team reportedly plans to attend the DSEI show at ExCel London in September. There, buyers should be able to meet the team to discuss paints and coatings requirements.
