BSI Kitemark® certification ensures a prosperous future for Austin Sheward Coachworks
Gaining the Kitemark certification has streamlined the processes and procedures for Austin Sheward Coachworks a Woking based bodyshop. Jason Shepherd, assistant manager at Austin Sheward commented: “Gaining the Kitemark gives a robust standard which is recognised nationally by Insurance companies, work providers and the general public. I have been working with cars for over twenty years and I know vehicles have changed drastically in the past six years. “You need to have the Kitemark to ensure your vehicles are repaired to the highest quality standard and that we are getting critical car body repair safety processes right. We are looking forward to seeing the benefits from gaining the Kitemark- but overall it has streamlined processes and procedures in the business.” “Most drivers don’t realise they can normally choose where their vehicle is repaired, and not their insurance company’s choice. It’s the motorists’ right to choose a bodyshop, which will repair your car competently to proven safety standards. Having the Kitemark at our bodyshop assures the customer they are making the right choice.” Scott Hanney, Business Development Manager, BSI added: “Austin Sheward Coachworks should be rightly proud of this on-going certification. The management of a bodyshop business should be able to view the adoption of PAS 125 as a business investment, not just as a required certification issue. The certification provides a blueprint for business improvement and providing evidence of corporate responsibility on behalf of work providers, retail customers and vehicle users.” - ENDS - Notes to Editors For media information Tracey Treanor, Chicane Tel: +44 (0) 07789 078710 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org About BSI Group BSI Group is a global independent business services organization that develops standards-based solutions to improve management practices and promote innovation.
