We have achieved a prominent position in the UK furniture Industry due to the consistent quality of our products and reliable service.
Quality Raw Materials
Ensuring quality wire and steel products are purchased is of paramount importance. We have an established core of trusted suppliers who we have visited and audited to ensure we get consistent high quality raw materials.
We have our own in-house testing facilities for wire and steel pre-production and for testing products post production. We randomly test existing supplier’s product, on a regular basis. Any new supplier’s products are rigorously tested before being accepted for general production use.
In June 2016 Wade Spring were awarded FIRA Gold for their Zig Zag Furniture Springs, the first Furniture Spring Manufacturer to achieve this quality mark.
Testing included passing a 200,000 severe contract cycle test complying
with BS:EN 16139:2013. FIRA Gold Certification is the recognised quality mark for products or installation services within the Furniture and Kitchen Industries.
“Springs are a major component in furniture construction, the achievement of this standard, the ongoing auditing from FIRA, and the further testing of springs should give our customers added confidence they are buying their springs from a reliable source.”
Chris Woodcock, Managing Director for Wade Spring
“We are pleased to be able to issue FIRA Gold Product Certification to Wade Spring Ltd.
We ensure consistency in production quality through regular audit testing and inspections to check that the products continue to provide a high level of performance. By following these strict processes, FIRA Gold provides ongoing reassurance to both Wade’s customers and their clients.”
