Bison Frames

Fast efficient certification for Bison Frames

Barnsley-based Bison Frames are well-known in the industry for manufacturing high-end PVC-U windows and doors. With more than 50 years of fabrication experience and an emphasis on quality and innovation, they manufacture casement windows, PVC-U doors, conservatories and WarmCore bi-folding doors. But perhaps they’re best known for their PVC-U sash windows, including their flagship Genesis vertical slider. So when the time came to seek PAS 24:2016 accreditation for their sash window range, Bison turned to the leading industry certification and compliance consultancy, CENSolutions.

Bison’s Managing Director, Mark Tetley comments: “As a manufacturer with a reputation for quality and service, it’s important to us that we partner with companies with the same values. We’ve worked with CENSolutions in the past and I know how well-respected Wayne, Mike and their team are within the industry, not just for certification but as a consultancy that works with businesses. So when we needed PAS 24:2016 certification for our sash windows, I called CENSolutions.

“I made the right choice – the process was fast, efficient and hassle-free. CENSolutions intuitively understood what we needed and acted accordingly, keeping things straightforward and clear along the way. They made a potentially daunting task simple, because they really understand how fabricators like us work. We have more certification to do for other products in our range, and we’ll go straight back to CENSolutions to accomplish it.”

Wayne Rogerson, Joint Managing Director of CENSolutions adds: “It was a pleasure to work with Bison Frames again. From the first phone call with Mark it was clear that Bison were ready for assessment for PAS 24:2016 accreditation on their vertical sliders. Bison’s hardware supplier ERA had already performed the window tests for them, and it was clear that their processes and documentation for factory systems controls and third-party supplier accreditations were already accurate, complete and up-to-date. One week after the initial phone call CENSolutions in cooperation with ER Certification performed the assessment, and one week later they Bison their PAS 24:2016 certificates.

“As a company Bison are committed to manufacturing quality products in the correct way, and this was demonstrated by their understanding of and commitment to quality standards and frameworks. I have no doubt that their customers benefit from working with a company that embraces standards in the way that Bison does, and at CENSolutions we’re looking forward to working with them again.”
