Unrivalled Quality

COMAH status means stringent regulations by UK Compliance Authorities including Health & Safety Executive and Environment Agency. We are one of the first chemical logistic companies to comply - and are now the #1 operator.

The most comprehensive quality assessment is CEFIC's SQAS regime. All our operations are audited to this standard and we achieve the best scores in Europe.

Reports are available on request.

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

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 unrivaled 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. For more info,see link .

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