The company was established in the United Kingdom by its Chairman, Bob Blake, in 1972. Ashe is uniquely placed as a large design and build construction company offering the full range of services from unusual and intricate projects to large-scale developments. Their aim is to construct environments that enhance the lives of the people who use them and to create environments which result in satisfied clients whether they are international blue-chip brands, property developers, public sector, or commercial organisations.
While the nature and size of the schemes they work on varies enormously, they are all covered by their company ethos that regards the standard and quality of service they offer their clients to be paramount – they aim for 5 Star Delivery on every project. Customer care is central to their approach at every stage of every project to ensure complete satisfaction with the buildings they deliver.
ISO Management Consultants Ltd have had the privilege of being their ISO Advisers since the implementation and UKAS registration in 2002-3. At that time driven by the then Managing Director, Robin Blake, who had the foresight of seeing the advantages that having an ISO integrated management system for 9001, 14001 & at that time 18001 OHSAS in place to help drive the business forward,
Thanks to their commitment and dedication to the culture of the ISO Standards and continual improvement, they are now an important part of the DNA of the company,
This has been achieved by the active involvement and participation of all the company’s staff. This has also led to registration to the “Investors in People Award” for the company in 2011.
I have watched with pleasure as this company has gone from strength to strength throughout the past years, even after 3 major financial crises and Covid-19 in the UK, they have kept focused. Driving quality, environmental, health and safety, customer satisfaction, and continual improvement.
I have watched the company develop from £5 million turnover in 2002-23 to over £70 million plus turnover in 2020. Due entirely to Bob and Robin’s vision and determination to see the possible advantages of having ISO embedded within their company.
