Shop fitting and retail display specialist achieves double recognition


Northamptonshire-based shop fitting and retail display company Triplar has continued to improve its industry credentials after undertaking accreditation through two leading schemes.

As part of the firm’s on-going commitment to environmental health and safety, Triplar has achieved both Public Available Specification (PAS) 82 accreditation and membership of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Developed specifically for shop fitters by the National Association of Shopfitters (NAS) with the British Standards Institution (BSI), PAS 82 accreditation aims to raise standards within the industry through recommendations on health, safety, environmental policies and more. In line with Triplar’s commitment to best practice, successful accreditation meant an in-depth assessment of the team’s offering – including risk assessments, premises and hazards – to ensure the very highest standards.

The team has also achieved membership of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. While only applicable to work undertaken in the UK, the scheme – which specifies a shop fitting management system – will benefit Triplar’s retail display fitting operations in Europe and beyond. A national imitative set up by the construction industry to improve its image, the scheme measures companies against a Code of Considerate Practice – focusing on on-site working practices, including consideration for the general public, the workforce and the environment.

The Wellingborough-based retail display, shop fitting and commercial interiors specialist, works with a range of multinational and national brands. The family-owned business has over 30 years in the sector and counts Nike, Levi’s, Lush and Dr. Martens among its clients.

Triplar MD Tim Rodwell said: “I am very pleased and proud of the work our team has undertaken to achieve accreditation in these areas. It’s crucial that we continually improve as a business and these industry-leading schemes provide us with a way to both measure and refine our current working practices.

“Triplar already has an excellent reputation for the highest health and safety standards but we want to go further, reducing our impact on the communities we work in while also delivering the highest standards to our clients.”

A prominent member of the Institute of Family Business, Triplar is also an active member of the UK shop fitting industry, with director Mike Rodwell recently joining the board of the NAS.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Monitor Noel Johnston said: “Triplar is a well-established company with good policies and procedures in place for its high profile clients. All of the requirements for the Considerate Constructors Scheme are in place at Triplar and it’s great to see that the company is enthusiastic about embracing and promoting the Scheme.”
