Nortech secures 'Gold Standard' Industry Accreditation
Nortech Group, the Wynyard-based professional engineering design and project management company, has secured the prestigious oil & gas industry recognized accreditation to ISO29001:2010-Oil and Gas.
ISO 29001:2010-Oil and Gas is an industry standard in the oil and gas market that defines ‘the management system requirements for the design, development, production, installation and service of products for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries'. /p>
The accreditation is held by only a select number of companies in the United Kingdom that meet stringent guidelines and a wide-ranging assessment into competencies.
The Nortech ISO 29001 Quality Management System is based on BS EN ISO 9001: 2008 and incorporates supplementary requirements emphasising defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste from service providers.
Bryan Bunn, Managing Director of Nortech Group, said: “We are delighted to have achieved this prestigious accreditation, which is a benchmark of quality for companies working within the oil and gas industry. This certification demonstrates our commitment to quality and continuous improvement not only in the oil & gas sector but throughout the Nortech Group wherever we operate.
Nortech Group is also delighted to have been recently re-certified into an Integrated Quality Management System for ISO 9001, 14001 & 18001. /p>
The firm has undergone rapid expansion to 80 members of staff and a turnover approaching £10m since being set up in April 2011. The company has broken through that threshold, as currently over 10% of its staff are benefiting from training schemes including apprenticeships.
