KAT achieves BSI Kitemark

KAT was presented with the ten BSI Kitemarks at the FIT Show on its stand in May 2017. On achieving the largest amount of BSI Kitemark certificates in any UK industry, KAT’s managing director, Chris Powell, commented: “To aim for and achieve this prestigious standard for all our products – aluminium and PVCu – was no mean feat. It has taken commitment and ambition from our team across different sites. We are delighted to have set such a precedent with the most Kitemark certificates reached at one time in any industry and to demonstrate to our trade customers our purpose to provide the best quality products.

“Our portfolio offers the most comprehensive collections, and now they all officially reach the highest level of quality and performance, this can only benefit our customers in passing on reliable, yet state-of-the-art, doors and windows to end users.”

Natasha Bambridge, UK Product Certification Director at BSI said: KAT should be delighted that they have achieved such an impressive number of BSI Kitemarks, which will undoubtedly provide assurance to their customers that their fenestration products are consistently high quality, safe and reliable. The BSI Kitemark is a symbol that around 70% of the British public recognize, and one that has given millions of Britons over the last century the knowledge and comfort that the products they come into contact with are tested to the highest possible standards. The team at KAT should be congratulated for this achievement.” Contact KAT
