Portable Exhibition Stand Provider Group Obtains ISO14001

NORTHAMPTON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2010) - Marler Haley, part of leading exhibition stands and event display solution group P3 Group have taken the lead in becoming the industry's first, to be officially accredited with the internationally recognised ISO14001 environmental standard. Working closely with BSI over the past year, Marler Haley together with Nimlok has been concentrating on obtaining the ISO14001 environmental management system.

Andrew Morris, Business Development Director from BSI commented; "Whilst Marler Haley and Nimlok have had a commendable focus on the environment for many years, certification to ISO14001 allows them to demonstrate that commitment. ISO14001 is the internationally-recognised standard for environmental management systems. It specifies how a business should go about reducing its environmental impact, whilst maintaining profitability. BSI only issues a certificate once we are convinced that our client had implemented processes and procedures that fully comply with the standard. This has meant a great deal of hard work for the staff at Marler Haley and they should be proud of their achievement. Winning a certificate is really only the start of the process as we will return annually looking for continuous improvement in Marler Haley's environmental management system."

Operations Manager, Keith Richardson added; "For 37 years we have been committed to caring for the environment by using 80% recyclable material for manufacturing our products." Marler Haley endeavour to ensure maximum recyclability of unwanted display products by offering to dispose of any exhibition display equipment no longer wanted by clients, as part of the original purchase contract.

Testament to the reusability of Marler Haley portable display stand products is the very large quantity of Marler Haley equipment still in daily use after 20 or 30 years.

Caring for the environment is something Marler Haley have always participated in; Keith commented; "When we were developing our site many years ago, we couldn't build on the corner of our land due to discovering a colony of newts and so left the gardens as they were so they were not disturbed - forever caring for the environment!"

Upon receiving the ISO14001 standard, Group Managing Director Tim Perutz added "We are extremely proud of this huge achievement and I am grateful to all of my colleagues for their efforts made in reaching this internationally accepted environmental standard."
