The Third Annual Prestigious Inconel Cup Results

QA Weld Tech employees enjoyed a spot of golf for some team bonding on Friday 15th September partaking in the third annual prestigious Inconel Cup held at Dinsdale Spa. Operations Director David Pickles took home the trophy this year, stealing the title from reigning champion Charlie Tighe, QA Weld Tech’s Managing Director, much to his disappointment.

All involved put up a fight but in the end, David shone through with 40 points playing off 28. Not far behind we saw a good knock from Pete Blakely with 37 points. For Peter Martin, Paul Langley and Charlie Tighe it didn’t seem to be their day unfortunately, maybe next year gentlemen!

Played annually, the event is open to any employee that is up for a friendly round. This year it saw a dozen staff members take on the challenge and we want to thank all involved for making it such an enjoyable day, until next year.

Next week we attend SPE Offshore 2017!

We have secured World Leading Quality Standard ISO 9001:2015

QA Weld Tech is delighted to confirm that we have successfully secured a world leading quality standard and have been awarded with ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 accreditations. And, to our knowledge, we are the first company in Teesside to secure this accreditation.

The hard work and commitment from both staff and our company as a whole has meant that we have managed to achieve the accreditation in only a matter of four months. Companies across the UK have been given up to three years to secure the rigorous standard – the 9001:2015 – which was only published in September 2015.

The standard – which is the toughest to date – means firms across the country have to implement systems that ensure all work processes, risks and opportunities, methods of work and management planning is documented and, key to this, is that all employees have to understand them.

For QA Weld Tech, this involved a full revamp of its management systems combined with the training of all staff across its Middlesbrough site.

This achievement will play a vital role in helping QA Weld Tech to stay at the forefront of the industry and to win work for the region and, most importantly, support the employment of people across Teesside.

Ambitious Plans to Enter Norway and Denmark Oil and Gas Market

We are delighted to announce that QA Weld Tech has been recognised as a verified and compliant supplier on the Achilles Joint Qualification System (JQS) – meaning that we can now make our mark within the Norwegian and Danish oil and gas market.

With Norway being the closest export market to the North East – and being a major hub for oil and gas – it makes operational and logistic sense for us to move into these thriving markets. And with our extensive experience of over 35 years in the industry of delivering leading welding and fabrication services, combined with our core capabilities and knowledge, we believe we have a lot to offer.

Having worked on projects all over the globe – including Ichthys LNG Australia, Block 31 Angola and Quad 204 West of Shetland – our extensive portfolio places us in good stead to be recognised favourably as a trusted and recognised supplier when bidding for new work.
