Supply chain distribution specialist Oakland International has retained British Retailers Consortium’s (BRC) quality audit for storage and distribution for their Ireland facility located in Ashbourne, Co. Meath.

Oakland’s General Manager in Ireland, Richard Hill (pictured), comments: “Retaining BRC approval is fantastic news for the business and for our customers, with BRC accreditation providing assured acknowledgement that Oakland is a highly rated supply chain partner.”

Passing with flying colours, the clean audit followed a rigorous daylong assessment of environmental standards, operating systems, traceability, layout and product flow also incorporates handling requirements of specified materials which offers a bench mark for best practice within the storage and distribution industry. Oakland’s proactive methods facilitate continuous improvement in all systems and processes through the use of custom-made management systems to provide customer confidence that all products stored and distributed through Oakland International retain their inherent quality.

As well as reflecting the standard’s best practise, Oakland’s BRC accreditation demonstrates consistency and care in the supply chain operation which encompasses order picking and packing, a key factor in the firm’s popularity as an Irish supply chain operator of choice.

Oakland’s Quality Assurance Manager, Louise Smith, comments: “We are all delighted particularly as the audit provided us with such positive feedback. Our team’s dedication ensures attention to detail and flexibility of service offer is maintained throughout, delivering positive results time after time.”

Oakland’s customers using both UK and Ireland depots enjoy a seamless, fully controlled quality standard which suppliers and their retail and wholesale customers have confidence in that the highest standards of quality safety and legality are continually being followed.

Known for innovation, Oakland’s Ireland and the UK supply chain management solution offers an expanding range of support services including tempering, co-packing, multi-temperature distribution, distressed load management and brand development support.
