The Abu Dhabi dealership green efforts recognised by leading Total Quality Assurance provider Intertek
Premier Motors is the first automotive company in the UAE to achieve five International Organization for Standardisation (ISO) certifications.
The Abu Dhabi dealership was awarded the ISO management systems certifications by leading Total Quality Assurance provider Intertek and cover Environmental Management, Occupational Health and Safety, Energy Management, Business Continuity and Security Management standards.
Premier Motors represents major European and American automobile manufacturers such as Land Rover, Jaguar, Ferrari, Maserati, Lincoln, Ford, and Ford Trucks across Abu Dhabi.
During a special ceremony at Premier Motors, the ISO certificates were presented to Helal Hanei Omar, Vice President of Premier Motors and Paul Moore, Senior Vice President, Administration and Finance of Al Tayer Motors, by Sudheer Kesapragada, General Manager of Business Assurance for UAE and Qatar at Intertek.
“These certifications are important to us because they reaffirm our commitment to adopting high global standards in governance and assurance management,” said Omar. “Equally important, they put in place a framework for continuous improvement and excellence in delivery of service to our customers. Over the years, we always set out to follow best in class standards in the way we deliver our services and products, and these certifications demonstrate our continued success.”
To attain the ISO certifications the dealership underwent a comprehensive independent and impartial assessment across its operations by Intertek’s expert auditors. The audit concluded that Premier Motors has established systems in place to improve its business operations, including the business continuity process to ensure the business can recover to an operational state within a short period of time.
Intertek also ensured the company’s commitment to occupational health and safety of its workers, as well as Premier Motor’s efforts taken to minimise the negative effects of business on the environment and verified their efficient use of energy, to reduce costs and conserve resources. Premier Motors further proved that it has an effective security management system, critical to security assurance of its supply chain.
“We are pleased to award Premier Motors with the ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 50001, ISO 22301, and ISO 28000 certifications and to congratulate them for their vision and commitment to world class standards,” said Sudheer Kesapragada, general manager of Business Assurance for UAE and Qatar at Intertek. “Intertek offers global Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification solutions to our customers across multiple industries and these certifications highlight the company’s high standards across its operations.”
