Top Rating for Financial Stability in the UK Awarded to Portakabin

Modular building specialist, Portakabin, has entered the top 15 per cent of companies in the UK and Ireland for financial stability, after achieving the highest possible rating from Dun & Bradstreet.

York, United Kingdom, October 16, 2010 --( Portakabin, the UK’s leading modular building specialist, has received the best possible financial rating from Dun & Bradstreet, and is now among the top 15 percent of all companies in the UK and Ireland for financial stability.

Dun & Bradstreet provides an independent assessment of all companies, and an internationally-recognised indicator of the risk of failure and credit worthiness. It is a dynamic scoring system that is continuously updated and reflects the most current situation.

The coveted ‘rating 1' status, which Portakabin has achieved, indicates that the business is low risk and has high creditworthiness.

Commenting on the award, Gareth Jones, Managing Director of Dun & Bradstreet in the UK and Ireland, said, "To achieve ‘rating 1' status in one of the worst global economic climates in recent memory, is a fantastic accomplishment, and we wholeheartedly congratulate Portakabin on its success."

Mike Williams, General Manager of Portakabin Hire, said, "We are absolutely delighted to receive another independently verified endorsement of our business. The award of the highest Dun & Bradstreet rating demonstrates the financial strength of our business, giving customers and suppliers even greater confidence and peace of mind when working with Portakabin - and at a time when many companies are struggling to maintain stability and performance.

"The fact that Portakabin is now among the elite 15 per cent of all companies in the UK and Ireland is a huge credit to our staff, customers and suppliers."

Portakabin has the reassurance of other independent accreditations which include Buying Solutions - the Government's procurement scheme; ISO 9001 for quality assurance, ISO 14001 for environmental performance, as well as Zurich, BBA, LABC, and CE approvals for its modular buildings.

In addition to its financial stability and the quality of its products, Portakabin also offers unrivalled commitments to customer service. Over the past four years, it has delivered 99.6 per cent of its modular buildings on time and on budget, rising to an unprecedented 99.9 per cent in the last 12 months.
