Onshore NDT Inspection Services

Our many years of providing Non Destructive Testing (NDT) services to the engineering, fabrication and construction industries throughout Scotland has enabled us to build up an extensive project of experience. A number of our technicians have been with us for nearly twenty years and there will be little that they haven’t seen before!

We offer the full suite of NDT disciplines, with the exception of radiography, and are able to tackle any scale or duration of project from ship surveys to quality assurance of welding on construction projects.

Our Glasgow head office is well placed for accepting delivery of test items and we operate a fleet of ten service vans for on-site Non Destructive Testing.

We are able to draw on the resources of Axiom Offshore Services, based in Aberdeen, as required and conventionally hard to access areas can usually be reached by a combination of rope access, powered access, mobile scaffolding or work positioning netting. All provided as part of a combined NDT package as required.

Amongst our other accreditations, we are audited by Lloyds Register and American bureau of Shipping. Our quality management system has been assessed to BS EN ISO 9001: 2008. Find out more about these standards.
