Certified Materials Services
Ocean Kinetics recognise the importance of fully certified and traceable materials for many of our clients. We maintain traceability within our stores and workshops through our Quality Management System, which is fully accredited to ISO 9001. We also hold ISO 3834-2 accreditation for comprehensive assurance of our fabrication activities. This encompasses the whole manufacturing process, from material procurement through to dispatch of finished goods.
Ocean Kinetics hold an approved vendors list; suppliers are verified and audited, as applicable to the range of goods they supply. All materials are purchased only from the approved vendors and are clearly tagged before being stored in our custom built Lerwick facility.
All jobs and contracts (that include items manufactured or worked on by Ocean Kinetics) are assigned a Quality Level during the Pre-Engineering process. The selected Quality Level defines which process route the job takes through our facility to your finished project. Clients can be sure that every step of the process is undertaken to the highest standard.
Traceability of our materials is not just a stores process; it is maintained throughout production and means that we know which materials were used on every individual job.
Working to ISO 3834-2 means that Ocean Kinetics go a step further; we know what welding consumables (rods/wire) were used on any given job. In many cases this is documented down to individual joints. From start to finish we know and have record of every aspect of the works that we have undertaken.
Recognising the importance of quality management and certification to our clients, Ocean Kinetics have invested heavily in achieving & maintaining our ISO/EN accreditations. This gives us industry leading levels of service and quality of workmanship.
Our Quality Management Systems are regularly audited by both SGS and TWI. We are also externally audited by the FPAL ‘Verify’ process and maintain first-class scores.
