Here at Forth, we are proud to announce that we have successfully achieved the highly renowned JOSCAR accreditation which recognises us as a fully compliant supplier for several defence companies and major organisations.
The JOSCAR accreditation is a central register of approved suppliers which are used by several major defence organisations including BAE Systems, the Ministry of Defence, Rolls Royce, Airbus and NATS.
Gaining a place on the register is strictly by invite only and requires successful completion of a rigorous qualification process.
Being JOSCAR-accredited means we join an elite group of suppliers which have been handpicked by some of the most established defence organisations across the UK.
The seal of approval means that our current and future customers can have extra confidence in Forth and our products as we have the capacity and technical ability to deliver on projects of this scale.
Many of these organisations have strict security requirements which are becoming more and more important to clients of all sizes, therefore being associated with JOSCAR helps to inform our customers that we meet these high levels of protection for their systems and data.
Tony Sneesby, the Operations Manager at our Barrow-in-Furness base, said: “Having this accreditation gives organisations we work with in the defence industry – such as BAE Systems in Barrow – the confidence that Forth meets all the required standards to work in a highly regulated environment.
“Forth has been working successfully in the nuclear industry for more than 20 years and we are known for our quality standards and compliance. We also have a proven ability to respond quickly and use our vast knowledge and experience to find solutions to challenges in a range of industries.”
