We understand that our customers operate in demanding environments where the quality and performance of the products and materials used is safety-critical. For that reason we place huge importance on ensuring that our products and services can stand up to these standards and we, therefore, invest heavily in achieving the following endorsements;
Quality as standard
We offer quality as standard for both products and services. With full in-house testing equipment and robust inspection procedures, we can ensure our components are manufactured to the highest industry standards with our UKAS 17025 accredited laboratory. We offer 3.1 certification as standard and 3.2 certification on request.
Where applicable, all items are manufactured using our custom-made process control software which is maintained by our material certification to BS EN 10204 3.1 and quality approved in conformance with ISO 9001:2015.
