Quality marks for Spiral


Helston-based specialist staircase manufacturer Spiral Construction has been awarded two prestigious accreditations.

The Company has achieved ISO9001, the international standard for quality management, and the Investors in People bronze standard.

Spiral Construction’s MD, Eric Nicholls, commented: “We are delighted to have received these accreditations in the same week and I am very proud of all our staff and management for achieving this.

“ISO9001 is a highly regarded international standard and will assist us in both the areas of continuous improvement for the business and winning future contracts. We are also delighted to have achieved the Investors in People bronze standard only three years after receiving our receiving our original accreditation. This puts us in the top 3% of companies nationally that have IIP, in itself a very difficult award to achieve.”

Meanwhile, work starts next week on the 30% expansion of Spiral’s Helston factory premises, with anticipated completion by February.

Nicholls added: “We are very pleased that work will shortly be under way on the next phase of our continued expansion. Despite the very difficult trading conditions in the construction industry at present, we are very busy on a large number of projects throughout the UK, including the supply of 11 feature helical staircases to a prestigious development of luxury apartments in Leicester Square, London.”

The company currently employs 55 people and is hoping to recruit further staff when the factory extension is completed.
