We continually invest in our quality assurance processes to ensure that we deliver safe, reliable, high quality products and services to our customers.
In the oil and gas sectors, reliability and safety are critical. That’s why we work hard to maintain our focus on quality assurance throughout all stages of the lifecycle of our products.
Our many approvals from leading oil and gas providers speak for the quality of our finished products and the services that support them. This quality would not be achieved without our internal focus on continuous improvement and tight management of processes to ensure that our products meet and exceed the needs of our customers.
ACCREDITATIONS & CERTIFICATIONS
Our focus on quality management dates back many years – having held the previous BS5750 quality accreditation since 1982, we completed our ISO9001 accreditation in 2007. We also hold a number of industry specific accreditations, and many of our products have passed specialist qualification tests relating to their performance, such as ASME, ANSI and API 6A.
The quality process starts before we even design or manufacture products. We carry out thorough goods-in inspections to ensure that all materials or components we receive are fit for purpose. Only then will they be used in a product that we put our name to.
Our Focus on People
Our people are our greatest asset, and have been central to our growth in recent years. They also play a vital role in our quality assurance processes. We involve staff at all levels of the business to ensure that we have a clear focus and a succession plan for the future to retain these our reputation of high quality products.
Thorough, Methodical Testing
All finished products are tested thoroughly on-site, in conditions that closely replicate those that they will go through when in service. The nature of the testing will depend on the product and many other factors, but all products go through a defined testing process, so that we can be sure that they will meet the needs of our customers before they leave our premises.
