Recently, the Hire Association Europe and Event Hire Association (HAE EHA) launched a new category of 'Hire Industry Trusted Suppliers' (HITs). Supply chain members have to pass the online assessment and due diligence process to achieve 'Trusted Supplier' status. We at Plastic Solutions (Aldridge) Ltd are proud to have been awarded this trusted status seal of approval.'
Jon Trelfa, Plastic Solutions General Manager, says, 'This is important to supplier companies such as ours. It gives our customers, many of whom are hire-based companies, that extra layer of reassurance that we are fully committed to maintaining the very best practices.
The HAE EHA say that 'displaying the HITs logo is a hallmark of quality in training, safety and environmental aspects as well as other important areas. Other well-known company names such as JCB and Morrisons have committed to this scheme too.' Of course, the name of the game, behind earning one's stripes, so to speak, with this seal of approval is to drive up safety standards as well continually.
But that's not all! Accompanying services also include legal advice, training, publicity, safety checks, marketing leaflets, lobbying and financial information. These are all vital add-on services that small businesses, like ours, need from time to time.
Being an HAE EHA member benefits us, at Plastic Solutions, in many ways. Firstly we maintain our customer focus with a quick and efficient service. For example, our customers value the fact that we hold high stock levels. That means we supply a speedy solution and we get it right first time. Secondly, we aim to double our turnover in the next few years. So working with the HAE EHA give us the secure 'backstop' of legal advice and sales path support we mentioned earlier. Thirdly, it gives us exposure to a network of similarly-minded members that we can tap.
