Constructionline have been working with buyers and suppliers for 20 years – they work closely with their partners and have a deep understanding of buyers’ needs. At Constructionline, they pride themselves on opening up opportunities for members to access a wide range of procurement contracts and projects – and for buyers to access a validated pool of high-quality suppliers. Compliance is at the heart of what they do. Whether it’s getting to grips with new standards and requirements or updating their systems to enable buyers to search on a wider range of criteria, their longstanding experts keep ahead of changing regulations – and so does their platform. Not only do they work to enhance PAS 91 criteria, they also validate suppliers as ‘Deemed to satisfy’ for SSIP via their health and safety specialists at Acclaim. In using the Constructionline platform, buyers can expect to simplify and speed up their search, validation, and purchasing decision processes considerably, improving resource and cost efficiency.
Our team has recently attended Sharmans’ purpose-built training facility at their Head Office in the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire. The training course was comprehensive, covering both Plygene Gutterline and Liquid Coatings products. Our guys got professional hands-on training to ensure correct application of Seamsil cut-edge protection and give that all-important 15 year guarantee for our metal roof renovation works.
Integrity recently renewed its continued membership of IFEDA. IFEDA, the Independent Fire Engineering & Distributors Association, was founded in 1989, to provide an independent representative body of fire trade companies. The objectives of IFEDA, as a trade association, are to support members and promote quality industry standards and procedures within the fire safety industry. IFEDA is also instrumental in promoting the benefits of these quality and professional industry standards to insurance companies, fire authorities, government departments and other fire trade companies. Leading the way in training IFEDA offers, amongst others, fire extinguisher training courses. IFEDA continues to champion third-party accreditation for fire risk assessments and their importance, following the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Fire risk assessments are an area often overlooked by businesses, and IFEDA, by assisting members and promoting quality and fire safety is keen to improve the industry standards of fire risk assessments delivered to business owners and industry as a whole.

Integrity Security Group is now the proud sponsor of the Llandidloes Football Club Juniors Team for under 12s! The first ever recorded game of football in mid-Wales was in Llanidloes at the ‘Lower Green’ on Victoria Avenue on 26 December 1870. The club was founded 5 years later in 1875, the same year as Newtown. The club is recorded as playing a fixture against Newtown on Christmas Day 1875 on a field called Caegwyn. ‘Records of Llanidloes’ early days are quite patchy, but it is known that the club reached the semi-final of the Welsh Cup in 1881, losing to Newtown.
