EJOT’s range of high performance concrete anchoring solutions, at the heart of which is its globally renowned LIEBIG heavy duty anchors, is now available for main contractors and public sector project teams to specify and procure with confidence through the Constructionline platform.
In being approved as a Constructionline Premier member by the industry-leading procurement and supply chain management service, EJOT has been verified to operate to the highest ethical and quality standards under the latest membership structure.
Membership to this highest level means EJOT has successfully complied with Constructionline’s enhanced assessment criteria in areas including environmental management, quality management and equal opportunities policies. As a result, buyers involved in major public sector building and infrastructure projects can find valid information on EJOT’s fastening systems, including its market-leading building envelope solutions and LIEBIG heavy duty anchors, in Constructionline’s supplier database.
Paul Papwoth, EJOT UK’s structural anchoring specialist said:
“We’re really pleased to have been approved as a Constructionline Premier member because we know how important it is for buyers on major projects to have total confidence in their supply partners, particularly for safety critical applications like anchoring into concrete.
“As a global business we are dedicated to working to the highest quality standards, whether that’s in respect of our ISO registered manufacturing systems, environmental management or ethical considerations. This is coupled with the high technical standards for our EJOT and LIEBIG branded products, many of which are certified to internationally recognised standards including ETAs (European Technical Assessments), the UKCA mark and FM Approvals, to give procurement teams full confidence in our ability to meet their project goals.”
Originally created as a government department more than 20 years ago, Constructionline supports thousands of businesses across the public and private sectors by connecting buyers and suppliers. It increases opportunities for members like EJOT to access a wide range of procurement contracts and projects, while at the same time giving buyers access to a validated pool of high quality suppliers working to enhanced PAS 91 criteria.
The LIEBIG range of heavy duty anchors has been used globally since the 1980s in wide variety of applications. These include nuclear power facilities, military establishments, tunnels, bridges and other safety critical high load installations and applications.
In the UK, a number of significant recent infrastructure projects have benefited from LIEBIG anchors too. These include HS2, where LIEBIG Superplus BLS anchors provided a versatile solution to securely fix silos at one of the project’s concrete batching plants, and the construction of the Third River Crossing bridge in Great Yarmouth, where LIEBIG Ultraplus anchors were specified to attach the bridge’s lifting, holding and lowering mechanism.
The depth of the assessment and scrutiny involved in the Constructionline scheme means no part of a supplier’s business goes untouched. As part of EJOT’s Constructionline verification process, it submitted a variety of quality specific documentation, ranging from its ISO 9001:2015 certificate and ethical and equality policies, to information detailing the company’s Carbon Reduction Plan 2035 and the data to demonstrate its reduction efforts to date.
