Business continuity certification


Kloeckner Metals UK has attained certification to ISO 22301 – an international standard for Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). 

It certifies the company’s compliance with global standards for continuous operations in the event of any disruptions. 

The primary purpose of BCMS is to identify threats relevant to a business and the critical business functions that they could impact. The ISO 22301 standard is designed to assist companies in identifying potential threats, assessing their impact and implementing plans in advance to prevent business disruptions.

In today’s rapidly changing global environment, numerous risks can affect companies’ operations. Kloeckner’s ability to manage everything from routine incidents to disruptions in the global supply chain gives its customers enhanced confidence that they will receive the products and services they need, when they need them, even during unforeseen circumstances. 

Peter Whiting, CEO of Kloeckner Metals UK: “As a supply chain partner to a number of high-technology industries, maintaining a robust business continuity management system and enhancing our business resilience is of paramount importance to ensure success. I am extremely proud of our team, whose hard work and commitment helps us consistently drive the business forward and lead the way among the industry suppliers.”
