Rochester Midland sets the standard for success


Rochester Midland Corporation, based in Newport, has proved its excellence in business performance after passing a rigorous independent assessment and accreditation process.

After qualifying as an Altius Assured Vendor, the company can now forge links with blue chip businesses like Selfridges, Morrisons, Airbus, Bellrock FM, Punch Taverns, Arcadia Group, Wolseley and Superdrug.

Gary Plant, Managing Director of award winning Altius, said: “Rochester Midland has demonstrated to our expert assessors that it’s a top supplier. This provides assurance that it has all the necessary health and safety systems, financial strength, insurance coverage, and other requirements in place to be a competent supplier to large corporate customers. We are delighted to welcome them as one of our assured vendors.”

Pauline Roberts, Business Director, said: “Achieving this recognised standard proves our high level of competency and compliance. It will enable us to compete nationally for major contracts and boost our reputation as a quality supplier. The major corporate businesses who are partnered with Altius can have confidence in our abilities, and it gives us a golden opportunity to increase our sales.”


Rochester Midland has strategically placed technical representatives across the UK and Ireland. The main area of business is water treatment and specifically Legionella Control. With the support of their parent company in the USA, they have a wealth of experience and knowledge to help manage your water systems.
