Hyperdrive Innovation has officially been certified by the International Standards Organisation (ISO) for the environmental standard ISO 14001:2015 establishing the business as a leader in its field. The independent assessment was conducted by QMS International, the UK’s largest quality management specialists.

Already holding ISO9001:2008 and the 2015 edition, the new accreditation will see Hyperdrive’s processes imbed an effective environmental management system. The business has restructured the way it uses gas, electricity and water to ensure best practice, as well as committing themselves to higher levels of cardboard, plastic and metal recycling.

Chris Pennison, CEO, said “To have achieved this accreditation is just fantastic as it recognises our ongoing commitment to not only our immediate ecosystem but the wider environment. It demonstrates our determination to drive excellence in every aspect of the business.”

Hyperdrive’s facilities in Sunderland have production capabilities of up to 10,000 battery packs per year and include three offices, two R&D workshops, one large manufacturing area and their top-secret innovation space.

The new certification comes just two months after Hyperdrive announced a strategic partnership with Foxlink Group to expand manufacturing efforts in Asia.
