Kloeckner Metals UK is Fit For Nuclear

Kloeckner Metals UK is pleased to announce that we have been certified with Fit 4 Nuclear status (F4N) by Nuclear AMRC.

F4N is a unique service, developed by Nuclear AMRC (University of Sheffield) to help UK manufacturing companies get ready to bid for work in the nuclear supply chain. It lets companies measure their operations against standards required to supply the nuclear industry - in new build, operations and decommissioning.

Throughout the assessment process Kloeckner’s Blackburn site was supported by F4N Industry Advisor John Olver who reviewed a wide range of processes and procedures and suggested improvements.

John Olver F4N advisor: “Kloeckner Blackburn has been on its F4N journey for 3 years. In that time extra resource has been provided in a focused manner and substantial training undertaken to ensure a SQEP workforce, effective communication and introduction of a Lean philosophy. There is clearly a strong commitment from the business and all its employees towards a Nuclear Safety Culture and ongoing continuous improvement.

Steve Tyrer Kloeckner Metals UK Business Development Manager Nuclear: “Kloeckner’s F4N journey has been an extremely positive one with our successful award as a result of a collaborative approach between both our Blackburn Operations and Commercial teams. This certificate is in recognition of Kloeckner’s strong drive towards continuous improvement and will greatly assist us in our journey into Nuclear new build, as many tier I contractors recognise F4N as an important qualification to identify new potential suppliers.”
