Ashdale Engineering company history

 

Since its launch over 25 years ago, the company has grown strongly, and now serves a wide national and international client base including major oil refineries, water companies and other public utilities, the Ministry of Defence and other government agencies, and a wide range of other industrial and commercial clients.

Ashdale Engineering was one of the first companies in Wales to gain registration to BS5750 (now ISO9000) and in early 1995 became one of the first companies in the UK to be registered under the Health and Safety Executive's original criteria for in-service inspection activities - the National Certification Scheme for in-Service Inspection Bodies (NCSIIB).

From 1998 Ashdale Engineering has been accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) as a 'Type A' Inspection Body under the international standard for in-service inspection ISO/IEC 17020.

As the business expanded, offices were opened in Bristol and then in Nottingham, to support regional inspectors and assist in serving an ever expanding geographical area as our client base continued to grow. These regional offices enable the company to maintain a local presence, ensuring our services remain easily accessible and strongly customer-focused.

In the last decade we have expanded, and now our client base spans all industry both across the U.K and overseas.

Major growth areas for our business have included local and county councils, the National Health Service, ports, docks, airports, MoD installations and other major industry.
