A Glasgow-based mobile power generator has passed its re-accreditation audit reviews the business’ practices in relation to health and safety, environmental compliance and quality control to ensure official processes and procedures are in place and being adhered to throughout all operations.

Achilles is the global leader and partner of choice for supply chain risk and performance management in industrial, infrastructure and natural resource sectors.

The audit takes place once every three years, in addition to an annual check-up.

Meanwhile generator provider Dieselec Thistle Generators has continued to generate strong growth throughout a number of sectors relying on Achilles accreditation – including major infrastructure projects such as the new Queensferry Crossing, data centre installations for major financial institutions in London and Edinburgh, and a portfolio of NHS hospitals throughout the UK.

Since 2010, DTG  – which plays ‘David’ to a rival Glasgow-based Goliath – has been supported by Glasgow-based equity partner, Nevis Capital, which continues to support the company growth.

Operating from its 6.3 acre head office facility – which includes an 80,000 sq ft warehouse  DTG holds up to £2 million of generators in stock and supplies from six to 3,000KVA.
