Top Tier COMAH

We are a quality operator and willingly sign up to the toughest accreditation regimes. ISO9001, COMAH, SQAS Warehouse, SQAS Transport, BRC Storage & Distribution, GMP/GDP, FEMAS, ISO22000. All of these keep us on our toes - and give you the assurance that your goods are in safe hands.

ISO9001 is only the half of it: we're held to higher standards still. COMAH, CEFIC/SQAS and BRC Storage and Distribution are among the schemes we adhere to. We're comfortable operating in the most demanding environments.

The Group is a prime mover behind the Hazchem Emergency Response Scheme which provides a single response system backed by the National Chemical Emergency Centre. This is a new innovation - and provides unrivalled peace of mind to our customers.

The Control of Major Accidents Hazards Regulations 1999 & 2015 govern the operation of large chemical warehouses throughout Europe.  HW Coates was one of the first to meet the standards.  We've grown to become the UK's Number 1 operator.

Coates is part of the community and tree planting continues to be a focus across our sites. We aim to soak up enough CO2 for about 100,000 deliveries a year.
