Quality

Company Quality Systems

  • ISO 9001
  • AD2000-Merkblatt W0
  • PED 2014/68EU

Due to the stringent requirements of the industries we service, quality is fundamental to what we do. Our quality systems are fully certified to ISO 9001  and we regularly carry out inspections and audits of all our mill sources in order to guarantee full tracability. All material undergoes rigorous inspection and checking before going into stock.

All our stock material is lot traceable and can be certified to  EN 10204 3.1 or type 3.2. We also offer PMI verification on release and only use cutting edge measuring and testing equipment to consistently deliver a high standard of product. We also place emphasis on the training of our staff to ensure they are well trained, knowledgeable and competent to carry out inspections to the most stringent specifications.

Furthermore, we use ISO 17025 accredited laboratories, along with our onsite NDT testing facilities, to allow us to dual release or requalify material in line with your requirements.
