Makin Metal Powders (UK) Ltd., Rochdale, UK, reports that it has achieved ISO 45001 2018 certification, the standard for management systems for occupational health and safety.

The company attributed this to its focus on protecting its workforce and those who come into contact with the company, building on its goal of ‘continuous improvement’ in all areas.

The next step for Makin will be to achieve all three management certifications held – Quality, Environmental and H&S – into one integrated system by the end of 2021.

Makin Metal Powders manufactures copper powder, bronze powder, tin powder, infiltrants and press-ready pre-mix powders along with other related alloys from its production facility in Rochdale. The company is one of the largest European producers of copper and copper alloy powders and, as part of the GRIPM family of companies, has a global reach with a worldwide network of agents and distributors.
