New Member Surge
ALLMI’s industry representation continues to expand, with YTD new member registrations increasing by 100% compared to the same period in 2022.
One member to recently join ALLMI’s fleet owner division is Bimson, a nationwide brick and block haulier to the UK’s construction materials manufacturers. The company’s Logistics Compliance Manager, Kevin Buckler, comments “Having been a user of ALLMI training for nearly 10 years, achieving member company status was a logical move for us. The application process included comprehensively reviewing the lorry loader aspect of our business to ensure we conform with legislation, standards and industry good practice; resulting in a membership that further enhances our already strong reputation for safety and quality.”
ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “ALLMI membership is something which is earned, and companies work hard to meet and maintain the required standard. It is, therefore, important that the industry recognises the value that should be associated in dealing with an ALLMI member, and the investment in quality the company will have made to have the right to display the ALLMI logo.”
He continues “We also have a provisional membership category, allowing companies that aren’t quite able to meet the audit requirements to still be a part of the Association, thereby having access to our training, guidance and support. Importantly, these companies cannot bear the ALLMI logo until full membership has been achieved, but it’s an excellent means of helping them to improve what they do and is another demonstration of ALLMI’s ability to raise industry standards in a very direct and tangible way.”
ALLMI provides membership for: manufacturers / importers; installers; service companies; ancillary equipment suppliers; fleet operators; site operators. Annual subscriptions start at just £450.
