Hooton Engineering awarded
ISO 1090 for structural steel

Hooton Engineering were delighted to be the first Company ever given the award with zero recomendations for improvement by ISOQAR. That’s what our customers have driven us to achieve.

When we started the journey towards this accreditation back in July 2014 we were told to expect that there would be changes needed to reach the levels required, as that was normal for all applicants. We were very pleased to hear that we had been awarded this standard, and that we were already working to the required levels.  It proves that our staff training is paying off as standards are very high, and that's what our customers have come to expect.

The company has vast experience of installation in plant not only our own, but as mainline installation engineers for several overseas manufacturers, as well as carrying out factory maintenance for a number of blue chip companies.
