Market-leading valve and penstock engineering experts celebrate renewing their SafeContractor accreditation and becoming SafePQQ verified.

Glenfield Invicta have been designing and manufacturing specialist engineered valves and penstocks for more than 160 years. Offering unparalleled industry expertise and market leading valve and penstock engineering excellence across water and non-utility infrastructure projects.

“Our quality ethos from project inception to completion is not limited to the service or product itself, and we are dedicated to offering our partners the highest safety standards. Our products are part of complex systems, handling vital processes every day. Our products fulfil and often exceed international standards and approvals and all new products undergo rigorous testing in line with our stringent quality control procedures.” commented Paul Boyden, Managing Director at Glenfield Invicta.

“Achieving SafeContractor accreditation demonstrates our commitment to health & safety best practice to new and existing clients. As a business we are also committed to working sustainably and ensuring ethical trading practices throughout our supply chain. Being awarded SafePQQ verification provides our clients with peace of mind that we have appropriate procedures in place against these key business sustainability topics including Modern Slavery, Right to Work, Environment, GDPR and Finance.” continued Paul.

Achieving UK-leading accreditation from SafeContractor and SafePQQ verification enhances a contractor’s reputation, saves them time and money when bidding on new tenders, and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices, company standards and procedures are compliant with the law. Contractors are connected to leading organisations via our online portal, where they are displayed alongside their accreditation and verification awards to hundreds of companies that only work with SafeContractor members.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: “SafeContractor has over 20 years of experience helping contractors to evidence that they have sound health and safety policies in place. During the current economic impact of COVID-19 it’s more important than ever that contractors enhance their reputation and win work. We have the UK’s largest team of in-house auditors to work with contractors through the accreditation process and to play a vital role in supporting clients to meet their compliance needs."

"Extending our vetting of supply chains to include our SafePQQ verification in May 2019 was a natural step for us to help our contractors save time, money and to win more work by reducing the burden of providing compliance information to various clients at different times.”

"We’re thrilled that Glenfield Invicta has achieved both SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification, demonstrating their commitment to best practice in health & safety and beyond. We wish them every success with their future growth and are proud to have them join our community of over 33,000 contractors.”
