Proud Plevin gain BSI accredited certification

1 June 2016

We are proud to have been awarded management system certification across all four of our processing and manufacturing sites, having gained our ISO9001, ISO14001 and OSHAS 18001 assurance marks following audits undertaken by BSI.

We began working towards certification in March 2015. Help was on hand from Barnsley Enterprise who supported us by providing both the funding and an external coaching consultancy to assist us in achieving this.

ISO9001 is a Quality Management System that enables us to provide a consistent quality product and service to our customers through standardising and documenting our processes. Environmental Management System ISO14001 demonstrates a robust, integrated approach to environmental management and sustainability. OHSAS18001, a widely recognised Occupational Health and Safety Management system, demonstrates a commitment to health and safety and the management of risks.

Michelle Barnes, group compliance manager, Plevin, said “Achieving BSI certification has had a positive impact on our working practice against internationally recognized industry standards. We are very proud of the efforts over the last year made by our employees in helping the company achieve these significant goals.”

The management systems will undergo rigorous checks to ensure standards are being met from a team of external auditors as part of the process to retain certification. We also have our own team of trained internal auditors to check systems and maintain best practices.

Team Plevin complete the Great Manchester 10k Run

23 May 2016

Nineteen runners from Plevin took part in the Great Manchester 10k run on Sunday (22 May 2016). 'Team Plevin' ran to raise money our charity of the year, the NSPCC, who work tirelessly to prevent child abuse.

The team had a fantastic day, completing the course in good time with no strains or blisters which is always a bonus.  Two team members even managed to take a selfie with none other than Eric Pollard from Emmerdale, one of the celebrities taking part in the race!

So far, Plevin have raised over £800 towards the worthy charity but the donations are still kindly pouring in. Our just giving page is still open. If you would like to make a donation, please visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Team-Plevin to make your pledge.

This is the second time that Plevin have taken part in the race in aid of a charity, both of which have been memorable occassions. The atmospehere was fantastic and with such a buzz when crossing the finishing line that some of our runners have already been asking if we are taking part in 2017!

New Group Operations Manager appointed

21 January 2016

Plevin has appointed Gareth Mason as their new Group Operations Manager to support its operations across all of their processing sites.

Gareth has been employed as Sales Manager at Plevin since February 2014, promoting the company’s Snowflake and Woodpecker pet and equine bedding brands. He also managed the incoming waste wood process for its recycling facilities.

In his previous employment, Gareth held the positions of Works Director and Production Manager for 7 and 10 year respectively. His previous experience holds him in good stead to enable the company to refocus on operational development, improving efficiencies across the four Plevin sites in Mossley - Greater Manchester, Hazlehead - South Yorkshire, Elkesley - Nottinghamshire and Boston - Lincolnshire.

As one of the largest wood waste recyclers in the UK, Plevin recycle all grades of waste wood. Alongside the animal bedding division of the business, Plevin provide stock for the panel board industry and manufacture wood fuel for the E.ON biomass renewable energy plant in Sheffield.
