"Just a quick email of thanks to you all for your hard work and endeavour to assist our company in successfully achieving CE Marking accreditation. We knew from the outset that our timescale was ambitious, without your support and professionalism it would not have been possible to achieve the accreditation. We along with external assessor were very impressed with the FPC system and all other aspects, from weld procedures to on site working that were covered and installed by Tony and your team of professionals.  Once again thank you from all of the employees here at Harbex." (December 2014)

"Thank You for all the hard work and help you gave us with our EXEC CLASS 2  CE audit. I would like to point out that we couldn't of done it without you. At the beginning we didn't have a clue where to start and after the first initial visit i found it daunting with the amount of work involved. You all put a change to this with the amount of work that is carried out by yourselves, which is a great relief of pressure to us. We believe we sailed through comfortably and are hoping to next year also with your ongoing support. We would recommend your services to anyone who asks".

"Following our stage 2 audit with we would like to take this opportunity of  sincerely  thanking  you both personally, and for  the overall services  provided by Structural & Weld Testing Services Ltd.
From initial advice given,  leading us through developing  and  implementing  company procedures to ensure compliance, to achieving a successful audit recommending our company for Certification to BS EN  1090, all within a 4 week period.
Having full appreciation of  the daunting and stressful affect the CE Marking procedure has had on both myself and Martin, we can only commend the excellent, professional and dedicated support you have given us, with a personal, flexible and calm approach to implementing the new procedure.  This has been instrumental in the success we have achieved and for this we cannot thank you enough for  your contributions and guidance.
We now look forward to the continued and long working  relationship with your company, providing the services  of  our  responsible welding coordinator."

"I would just like to offer our thanks for the help and advice you and your company gave us during our recent stage 1 and finally stage 2 audits which concluded with us achieving BS EN 1090 part 2 to execution class 2 CE accreditation.
I can honestly say that there are so many mis-conceptions out there regarding what is eligible and how things have to be done etc. to gain accreditation. Your understanding of the factual requirements was first class. It was made so much clearer to us, by having your assistance, not only writing our FPC but also the time spent with our staff training them in the implementation of it. This was also spoken about by the BSI representative who stated that our FPC was one of the best he had seen, very clear and concise.
We will of course remain in contact with you as our nominated RWC and any other welding qualifications that we require. In the mean-time, could you please pass on our thanks for all the hard work that you, Dan, Gary and Dal have put in whilst helping us achieve our goal."
