We are proud to have memberships with the below organisations.
Achilles qualifies, evaluates and monitors suppliers so buyers for the world’s largest corporations can develop long-term, mutually-beneficial relationships with reliable, qualified suppliers across the globe.
The British Woodworking Federation
The BWF is predominantly a business support organisation. They offer advice, support and wood industry information to their members as well as guidance for customers who use, or specify, their members’ products and services.
All participating members of the BWF-CERTIFIRE Fire Door and Doorset Scheme are rigorously assessed and audited, providing specifiers with the added security and confidence in the products being selected.
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. FORS helps fleet operators to measure and monitor performance and alter their operations in order to demonstrate best practices.
Grown in Britain
Grown in Britain brings together everyone who values forests, woods and trees and the products that can be made from the wood they produce. It is an incredibly positive movement that is bringing together environmentalists, contractors and woodland managers.
Timber Decking & Cladding Association
The Timber Decking and Cladding Association (TDCA) is an independent organisation. They are a technical and advisory body that operates on a not for profit basis. They provide guidance on how to correctly select, specify and use timber that is used to construct decks and cladding.
The Timber Trade Federation (TTF)
The Timber Trade Federation is growing the use of wood through innovative industry representation and growing business support for its members. The TTF is regularly consulted by Government, NGOs and sister organisations on issues affecting the wood industry and is helping to shape a successful future for its members.
