Norbord is celebrating achieving gold in the Structural Timber Association's new Assure accreditation programme.

STA Assure offers three different levels of accreditation - gold, silver and bronze - to provide customer assurance.

And Norbord, which is a member of the STA, says achieving gold means that its position in the timber frame industry as the manufacturer of SterlingOSB has been "acknowledged".

The STA Assure membership and quality standards scheme aims to benefit both customers and members, promoting the different specialisms, accreditations and quality standards held by STA members.

The accreditation levels highlight the differing levels of in-house quality procedures, management systems and product performance as well as external accreditations held by STA members, offering clients complete transparency.

David Connacher, Norbord’s Marketing Manager, said: “We are obviously pleased to have been awarded with STA Assure Level Gold, which enables us to further demonstrate our high quality standards to the market and provide complete reassurance for our customers.”
