We are proud to hold the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems (QMS) certification. This is testament to the continued drive to improve. Quality and service is at the heart of everything that Long Rake Spar does, and this accreditation further demonstrates our commitment to this.

As our company continues to grow and diversify into many market sectors we see our affiliations and memberships as a primary means to communicate our commitment as integral suppliers to this wide cross section of trades and industries.
