“…quality means doing it right when no one is looking.”
Our UKAS approved ISO9001 certification by BSI provides the reassurance that our internal quality systems are in place, implemented and current, thus ensuring clients’ requirements are understood and products/services provided appropriately.
For welding we have a specific Weld Quality Management System (WQMS) supplemented with the integral Factory Production Control (FPC). A Responsible Welding Co-ordinator oversees all Welding Procedure Specifications aided by the Workshop Foreman/Quality Assurance Manager. All fabrications and site works are monitored before, during and after completion.
Whether it be a full tender submission, job survey, or emergency call out, we have a document trail that enables full traceability and accountability.
Operationally we employ the use of Design Controls, Work Instructions, Programs of Work, RAMS, Quality Plans, Progress Reports, SAT, FAT, and Declaration of Performances/Certificates of Conformity.
In procurement, only approved suppliers and sub-contractors are used and a rigorous goods inwards inspection conducted.
All key equipment is maintained, serviced and calibrated thus ensuring reliable quality and operational efficiency.
Non-conformances and KPI’s are recorded with subsequent management reviews addressing any areas needing improvement and the appropriate corrective actions required or positive commendations to staff to be acknowledged.
The quality path is never ending. As technology develops, standards change, new products evolve, and new skills are acquired by the company – we have to maintain and aim for engineering excellence.
