Acorn Timber & Joinery - Certifications & Accreditations
Now that you have visited our website you will no doubt have realised the value we hold in third party certification.

As a company, and as individuals, we have always strived for quality in our workmanship and our attention to detail but as the construction industry became more demanding we saw the need to substantiate this.

Our first official accreditation came in 2005 when we achieved membership of the BWF (British Woodworking Federation). Although this involved many changes and company wide improvements to meet the membership criteria, we still feel it has been our best investment of time and money to date. Membership of the BWF alone does not meet the demands of our industry, it was this membership which inspired us to go onto achieve the certifications detailed below

About the BWF
The BWF is predominantly a business support organisation. They offer advice, support and wood industry information to their members as well as guidance for customers who use, or specify, their members' products and services.

Members of the BWF get invaluable back up and business support. We would be happy to recommend any joinery manufacturer to join the BWF, providing they have the drive and persistence to develop.

ISO 9001:2008 (WQM 154)
About ISO9001:2008
We were really sceptical about the need for ISO9001 until we began our consultation sessions. We had always thought that we consistently made quality products and that our internal systems operated efficiently. How wrong we were.

Achieving certification took more time, money and effort than all the others standards we have met but the systems implemented both before and after compliance have greatly improved our company.

We are independently audited every 9 months by Warrington Certification.
