Rise Elevator and Compliant FM come together to achieve ISO 9001


Two North East based businesses leading the way with strategic partnership.

In 2020 North East Automotive Alliance members Rise Elevator and Compliant FM joined forces. The aim of this partnership was for Rise Elevator to gain UKAS accredited ISO certification, ISO 9001. ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for quality and with consultancy support from Compliant FM, Rise Elevator became successfully certified in less than 3 months. Gaining this renowned certification is a great success for Rise Elevator as it supports the business’ commitment to high quality services and enables it to tender for larger contracts.


After careful research Rise Elevator decided to invest in a UKAS accreditation that would support the business’ overall strategy and help with its five-year plan.

Rise Elevator partnered with Compliant FM as they had a good reputation and high success rate for supporting SMEs in gaining certification with a quick turnaround. Engaging a certification consultant meant that a successful framework with professional processes and procedures was put in place for Rise Elevator. The two North East based companies are working together to improve lift services across the region and beyond.


  • Successfully achieved ISO 9001
  • Supported tendered work submissions
  • Improved client satisfaction rates and confidence

“We were delighted to have been approached by Rise Elevator to support with ISO 9001. Kris and his team have been completely dedicated to the process and it was great for us to support another North East based business in its progression. We know the certification has helped Rise to tender for larger projects and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this ambitious company. Well done everyone.”

Mark Henderson, Director

“As a new company we knew we wanted to implement a certification that would help set up business processes and give our customers confidence in our service delivery. ISO 9001 seemed like the obvious choice as it is globally recognised and would give us the foundations to develop the business. We were keen to engage a local business and follow NEAA member, to support with the delivery and were impressed with Compliant FM’s offering. The partnership has been a great success and we are now looking at investing in ISO 14001 and ISO 45001. The certification has helped the business to grow and given us the confidence to target larger projects.”
