High standards at Prince Petroleum

The Leicestershire-based independent and family-owned distributor, now in its 60th year, has recently been approved for two prestigious accreditations following a project that was first implemented in late 2020. With the company being recognised for excellence in administration systems, having been assessed and approved to ISO 9001 standard, as well as being awarded the Fleet Operators Registration Scheme accreditation we spoke with managing director, David Prince.

Team Prince from l-r: Malcom: financial controller, Samantha: Office manager, Isabelle: quality manager, Matthew: sales director, Johnathan Prince: director and David Prince: managing director & business owner along with team Labrador, Winnie who can be seen in the office most days  collecting lots of fuss & attention.

Rightfully proud of the achievements of all those involved David explained:
“We embarked on a project, late 2020, to support our B2B business development with the introduction of a Quality Management system to further assure customers of our commitment to delivering goods and services to the highest standards. I felt that we needed a universally recognised and accredited Quality Management system (QMS) that was independently audited and ‘badged’ so I choose ISO 9001 as the standard we wished to work to.”
“I am pleased to say that during May 2021 we were awarded the accreditation, following a successful external audit procedure.
A double success
“In a separate project, working with our tanker fleet we recently achieved the required level to be awarded The FORS accreditation – Fleet Operators Registration Scheme.”
David goes on to give credit to the successful management of these projects:
“Both projects have been internally managed here at Prince by Isabelle Sansone – our new quality manager (QM) – congrats Isabelle!”
